Are we Making Things Last in Construction? The Scottish Circular Economy – Design, Materials and Construction.

Start date: 13-03-2019 End date: 13-03-2019

Making Things Last: a circular economy strategy for Scotland was launched in 2016. This strategy aims to  build a strong economy, protect our resources and support the environment.

This event will explore how the Circular Economy can be adopted in Scottish design and construction. It will look at:

  • Circular Economy Planning statements and designing in circularity.
  • Embedding circular principles in construction.
  • A showcase of emerging Scottish circular economy building materials and models. 

We think this event will be of interest to Architects, Specifiers, Clients and Contractors. This event has been delivered as part of a collaboration between Architecture and Design Scotland and Zero Waste Scotland.
