50 to Watch Case Studies: Minimizing Construction Waste

A SOLUTION:CATALOG AND REUSE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS 

 

Concular provides a digitized circular materials procurement system 

How it Works 

Materials in buildings scheduled for reconstruction are tagged using a QR code. Available materials are cataloged on a digital platform and assessed for their deconstructability, environmental impact and potential value. Clients can procure reclaimed materials as needed. 

Potential Impact 

Construction waste is diverted from landfills and reused, promoting a closed-loop material system. Carbon emissions that would be produced by manufacturing new materials are eliminated. 

Ambition 

To change the traditional practices within the construction industry, i.e., to minimize the need for the deconstruction in the first place, and to
use mostly reclaimed materials in buildings.
