Using BIM to help deliver a circular economy
Do you really understand what goes into your buildings and how you can manage it to reduce the impact on our planet?
Understanding how to design to create a circular economy is key in the built environment’s bid to achieve net zero. We have a real opportunity to do more as an industry to improve the sustainability and cost-effectiveness of projects by increasing the reuse of resources while reducing the amount of waste.
In this free online bitesize BIM series, Steve Faulkner will explain how to use buildings as material banks, implementing a ‘smart’ building approach to help monitor energy use and streamlining the transition of data between design, construction, and facilities management. As well as demystifying the principles of BIM, we will showcase examples from recent projects and research that underpins our approach in four 20 minute sessions.
