The ‘Circular Economy’ aims to keep building materials in use in their most valuable form for as long as possible. Buildings should be designed to be adaptable for re-purposing throughout their life, such that the original material is retained and re-used before recycling opportunities are considered.
Building elements should be designed to be dismountable and upgradable to suit future needs whenever possible. Finally, when re-use is no longer viable, the ability to recycle with maximum efficiency and retained value must be achieved.
The goal for a Circular Economy is that all materials remain in circulation indefinitely to prevent waste and protect our finite resources.
The New London Plan identifies this need and requires new projects to develop Circular Economy Strategies to show active progress in achieving a Circular Economy.
