BUILD CIRCULAR

Having visited recently the Ecobuilt fair in London we wandered through the aisles of products and systems that aim (claim) to be sustainable and improve our lives. From ecofriendly building materials to tripple glazed windows and geothermal heating systems, it’s all a bit expected to be honest.

BUT what caught our attention was the concept of ‘Build Circular’. The idea that one should design and think about the end of life before we even start. The event had a series of discussions, debates and presentations that examine which principles of circular economy thinking and resource efficiency can be profitably applied in the built environment. We witnessed examples of how waste can be reduced, costs cut and benefits be achieved in a lifecycle approach.

Ever so often interior design is about refurbishment, where we come in to refresh a space and get rid of the old. How to include reuse in our design process and integrate this into the design concept? Can we design fit-outs that would be easily dismantled or reused in 5 years time? Is it possible to assess what is there and try to redistribute rather than discard?

Once this stage is well integrated into the design process it can become an asset for design companies rather than being an extra expense or investment. Certainly worth considering for those interested in reducing costs, looking at material lifecycles, building flexibility and looking at innovative models to retain value in buildings.

Interesting point to discuss with future clients!
