Building Circularity – add-on feature

Optimize The Circularity of Materials

Track, quantify and optimize the circularity of materials sourced and used, as well as the end-of-life circularity. Get a holistic picture and a detailed breakdown per material type.

What is Circular Economy?

According to the 2019 Circularity Gap Report, just 9% of the 92.8 billion tonnes of minerals, fossil fuels, metals and biomass that enter the global economy are re-used annually. The climate change calls for the global shift from “Take-Make-Waste” economy to a circular model in order to maximize the use of existing assets.

In the built environment it is meant to be achieved through:

  1. Designing out waste and pollution
  2. Keeping products and materials in use
  3. Regenerating natural systems

Why Circularity Assessment matters?

With your circularity assessment, you can achieve the requirements in HQE Economie Circulaire, London Plan Circularity Statement, Ellen McArthur Foundation Circularity IndicatorsYou can also earn credits in BREEAM Mat 06, Mat 05, Mat 03, and Man 03.

What can you do with Building Circularity?

Building Circularity is an add-on to One Click LCA software. The tool is built based on UKGBC Circular Economy Guidance.

Software capabilities allowing to achieve high score under BREEAM International certification are amongst the most valued features. Data import from *.IFC file when the file is of appropriate LOD reduce the amount of man-hours needed to complete the project.
