The D4.3 will present a detailed review of the inventory of used materials of the Frontrunner buildings 1 and 4 considering both material passport strategies, the definition of deconstruction plans for afterlife applications and the BIM modelling for the demo sites. This task relates to the establishment of HOUSEFUL solution S3 for mentioned buildings but will be also used for the definition of technical specifications and execution projects in Task (D4.2). This deliverable is related to Task 4.1.

Reference methodologies and KPIs in circular economy analysis

Establishment of the most relevant calculation methodologies and KPIs to be considered in the circular economy analysis to be deployed during the project. The technically pre-selected KPIs will be then considered when engaging stakeholders in task 3.1., as well as for the circular economy baseline evaluation (D4.3) and for the validation of HOUSEFUL solutions at building scale (D4.6). This deliverable is related to Task 2.3.

Project leaflet

The HOUSEFUL leaflet, addressing European stakeholders at large, will provide information on the main characteristics of the project and its expected results and impacts. Key key information and messages will be adapted to properly engage the different stakeholders identified in Task 3.1. This deliverable is related to Task 7.2.

Market study (version II - final)

Updated and final version of D61

Flyers (Communication materials for stake-holder engagement)

The flyer will inform local citizens and stakeholders about the HOUSEFUL solutions demonstrated in the project, including the SaaS, with simple and easy-to-understand messages. The flyer will have a common visual identity, but contents will be customized according to the specificity of each Frontrunner building. This deliverable is related to Task 7.2.

Report on public communication, networking and clustering activities (version I)

Report regarding the activities related to communication strategies deployed during the project with respect to public communication, including articles and interviews, videos (D7.3, D7.4 and D7.9), press and news releases and pageflow (D7.8); networking and clustering activities, such as participation in fairs and conferences, activities with other circular economy projects and events attended and organized by the project. This deliverable is related to Task 7.4.
