Overview 

Construction clients and project teams are increasingly incorporating circular economy principles into built environment projectsTo gather and develop knowledge on the practicalities of doing soUKGBC’s Circular Economy Live Projects Forum brings together  individuals from across the value chain who are implementing circular economy principles  to share learnings, find solutions, and make progress on live projects. 

The forum is a solutions orientated space open to UKGBC member organisations who are currently working on at least one live construction project explicitly applying one or more circular principle. Quarterly meetings are held in which participants provide updates on their projects and work together on key challenges and topics of interest. In 2020, member-led Working Groups – outside of the main quarterly forum remit – were also established for participants to participate in, focusing on:

  • Material reuse and availability in the second-hand market – led by Grosvenor
  • CE performance criteria, monitoring metrics and benchmarks – led by BDP
  • Design for adaptation, flexibility, deconstruction – led by ORMS

This year, we will continue to build on, and share, findings from the Working Groups as part of our main Circular Economy programme. The Forum Terms of Reference covers the purpose, membership criteria, ways of working and forum outputs in more detail. You can find the Terms of Reference here. If you are interested in getting involved, please email Kai Liebetanz.
