New circular updates from HOUSEFUL
The past months have been difficult and challenging and I hope that you and your beloved ones stay healthy!
It has not been an easy time for HOUSEFUL either. For example, we had to temporarily suspend the work at our demo-buildings and postpone and hold online some of our co-creation workshops, aiming to discuss and validate ideas for the uptake of circularity in the housing sector.
Despite the difficulties experienced in the past months, we didn’t stay idle, of course! We have advanced on multiple fronts, such as on the development of a Building Circularity Methodology, its implementation in our Software as a Service platform, or on BIM modelling and material passports. So, no worries, our commitment to design circular buildings and create a more sustainable housing sector has remained unchanged!
But now let me thank you once again for your interest in our project and invite you take a closer look at the latest news from the world of HOUSEFUL.
Enjoy your reading!
