The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) has been active in the development of circular economy thinking for over five years, including on a number of successful collaborative research projects which have aimed to identify the barriers and make the business case for the ‘reuse’ of existing building components and the development of new ‘reusable’ products which can be dismantled and reused at end of life.
The aim of the ASBP Reusable Products and Buildings Network is to bring together forward-thinking organisations in the sector (clients, designers, manufacturers, contractors, demolition and more) to share learning, fill gaps in knowledge and further the awareness and development of reusable products and buildings that can contribute towards a more resource efficient built environment.
