Solutions for existing buildings to become 100% circular, such as smart maintenance through IoT, lifetime extension, energy-efficient retrofitting, and modular components
Interior & Design
Solutions for circular interiors, such as sharing platforms, energy saving systems, digital technologies, and smart materials
Planning & Logistics
Solutions such as the tracing & tracking of materials, and match-making platforms for creating value out of underutilised assets, surplus capacity and used materials and components
