The circular economy requires materials and elements to be retained at their highest value for as long as possible. Structural engineers are uniquely placed to facilitate the re-use of not just entire buildings and infrastructure, but also individual elements. Designers can have the greatest impact at the start of a project when strategic decisions are being made. This publication comprises four parts, and provides actionable guidance for incorporating circular principles on engineering projects; enabling structural engineers to take the initiative on this critical transition by leading clients and project teams through the process.
  • Part 1 explains the concepts, outlines how to overcome the barriers to adoption, and quantifies the impact.
  • Part 2 focuses on the feasibility, analysis, design and construction aspects of reusing exiting buildings.
  • Part 3 contains detailed material-specific subsections and develops the thinking around reusing components and assemblies, audits, and the legal considerations to be aware of.
  • Part 4 utilises case studies to provide design strategies for longevity and reuse, deconstruction, and resource efficiency.
