Circular Building Design Guideline


To accelerate and make the transition to a circular economy more effective, it is crucial to have an overview of the various strategies, principles, and possible tools whose implementation can bring successful solutions to the construction industry.

This publication by EUKI project CirCon4Climate provides an overview of the principles of circular building design through the lens of 9R, including design for disassembly, reversibility, adaptability, reconfiguration, and spatial transformability, as well as an overview of possible tools for circularity feedback. By using these principles in building design, buildings can be easily disassembled, repaired, or adapted for new use, reducing the need for new materials and minimising the generation of construction waste. 

This publication is also available in Czech, Polish, and Slovenian.
