Circular Construction In Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT)


Recommendation on circularity indicators for WP8

Report which provides clear recommendations for a SMART concise and robust list of indicators that will provide an overview of circularity at a city building and material level Associated guidance on the type of indicators that can be used depending on the data availability their purpose how they can be measured monitored and reported and whom by and the benefits of using them task 32

Report on set up of Circularity Hub

Report that describes the dependencies, functionalities and interactions of all applications in the Circularity Hub, as well as the architecture of the platform. This includes documentation of existing and reusable software and methodologies across the consortium, a testing and development paradigm for continuous improvement of the Circularity Hub and the setup of the Circularity Wiki (tasks 8.1, 8.2 and 8.6).

Report on the establishment of the Circularity Dashboard

Report that describes the development of the Urban Mining Index the Lifespan Index and the Circularity Index as well as presents the Circularity Dashboard and its links to WP3 task 85

Report on using 3D for citizen engagement

Report on use cases of citizen engagement activities including the usage of 3D visualization for improving involvement and feedback task 87

Guide for case selection via the mapping of transformable neighbourhoods/buildings

This guide explains the methods explored in the project for the systematic identification of transformation targets from a larger mass of buildings The document lists the basic premises data requirements use procedures expectable results as well as benefits and possible shortcomings of the different approaches demonstrating and illustrating these issues with the help of the practical case studies performed in the four consortium cities The document is mainly targeted at municipal authorities urban planners and real estate portfolio managers

Developing and applying replicable design strategies and principles

This is a handson documentation that walks the reader through the replicable design strategies and principles developed in the project and gives practical instructions how to apply those strategies and principles in other similarenough contexts demonstrating and illustrating this with the casespecific designs created in the project The document also explains the premises for creating such strategies and principles for other contexts covering methods and data requirements cocreation collaboration practices as well as potential benefits and shortcomings of the approaches The guideline is mainly targeted at architects and planners

Circular economy in urban planning and building permits - possibilities and limitations

Analysis of the possibilities to implement circular construction within the four cities policy instruments and procedures Identify room for manoeuvre for including requirements on the three innovative solutions Identify how the four cities can move forward and implement circular construction

Feedback: CIRCuIT City Network and wider industry network

This task will develop a network of cities to disseminate experience impacts and outcomes of the project as well as gather information from them in a twoway information exchange It will also look to exploit existing global city network groups and industry networks to share project learning

Decision-Maker Forum

Report that identify key potentials and barriers for flexible construction across the participant cities derived from interviews and workshops with identified key stakeholders

Recommendation for improving capture material flow data in the built environment

Report which summarises existing data and the methods of collection, format, validation and application in each city and reports on the gaps. Recommendations for improving data capture within the practices and constraints of each city will be provided. (task 3.1).

Template business cases for built environment

Templates for decision makers in the city administrations and councils Based on TCO or LCC

Documentation with audit result, inventory and demolition guide for execution

Evaluation of the eight predemolition audits and guide with design protocols and checklists

State of the art on material flow data in the built environment

Report to capture the current best practices and state of the art knowledge and capability in mapping and understanding material flows in the built environment. Latest innovation in facilitating material based mass scanning of the existing building stock will also be examined. (task 3.1)

Recommendations: Instruments for the dialogues with developers

Develop set of recommendations for an improved dialogue between the city administration and developers The partner cities will identify which of the recommendations they will commit to use

Feedback: annual networking events and hackathons

Report presenting the outcomes of annual networking events and hackathons curate a programme of city specific networking events and hackathons to support the project
