The circular economy requires materials and elements to be retained at their highest value for as long as possible. Structural engineers are uniquely placed to facilitate the re-use of not just entire buildings and infrastructure, but also individual elements. Designers can have the greatest impact at the start of a project when strategic decisions are being made.
Penny Gowler will provide an overview of the Circular Economy & Reuse guide which was published by the Institution of Structural Engineers in July 2023. She will explain the current focus on Circular Economy and Retrofit First in London and talk through some case studies including what is widely believed to be the largest steel reuse project in the UK.
