Built Offsite - Issue 16

Concerns over how to deal with the leftovers from our building activities are not new. In the early 2000’s Cradle To Grave (C2C) thinking essentially envisioned the substitution of toxic base materials with more environmentally friendly ones. C2C and other concepts such as “Zero Waste” have held currency for some time, but now thinking is turning to the term ‘Circular Economy’ (CE), an approach that envisions buildings as repositories of value, with potential implications for offsite construction.
