Circular economy consultancy

The construction industry consumes 50% of the UK’s total material demand and produces nearly 60% of all waste. There is a strong evidence base from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and others, that the Circular Economy provides a huge economic opportunity. Further, the Circular Economy can help eliminate dependencies on volatile markets, minimise environmental emissions and develop resilient communities. However, the transition in the construction sector has proven to be particularly complex and difficult. The biggest challenges are often not technical; rather they tend to be cultural, commercial and legal.

We provide circular economy consultancy at a range of scales:

  • Regions
  • Masterplans
  • Building and infrastructure projects
  • Products
  • Organisations

Our Circular Economy Portfolio highlights our service offer and experience of working as an interdisciplinary group of architects, engineers, consultants, designers and educators to deliver circular outcomes.

We were the lead authors for the guidance on producing a Circular Economy Statement (now required for major developments in the London Plan 2021).  We have developed a series of tried and tested processes and workshop tools that enable clients, developers and contractors to rapidly identify circular economy opportunities, develop a strategy, produce a Circular Economy Statement for planning, and embed circular economy principles into detailed design, procurement, construction and long-term operation.

In our blog series, we share some of the insights we have gained during more than a decade of working on circular solutions:
