Dekker, Joris (author)
Urbanisation has increased the worlds' cities populations and influenced the living conditions within these cities. Temperatures rise, the air becomes more polluted and noise levels increase. It has been proven that types of vegetation such as plants and trees can reduce the negative effects of urbanisation by for instance cooling cities,...

Green roofs can play an important role in reducing problems in urban areas by being flexible, multifunctional and adaptable. These features of nature have proven effective in combating climate change and contribute to human well-being. Previous research has shown that green roofs can sometimes be cost-effective, but the benefits included in cost...

This research investigates the integration of environmental costs into the cost-benefit analysis (CBA) framework for constructing circular viaducts. Circular viaducts offer environmental benefits but face challenges due to their higher initial construction costs. The traditional CBA framework focuses solely on economic costs, hindering the...

Vertical greening systems (VGS), i.e. vegetated building facades, can harness the benefits of nature to contribute to resilient and healthy cities. A lack of guidelines for the early selection and design of VGS currently limits implementation. Based on a literature study and expert interviews, this thesis proposes a multi-criteria framework and...

Grimbergen, Katja (author)
The Dutch construction sector has the task in the coming years, to build around 1 million new houses in the Netherlands, most of which will have to be built in urban areas. Together with existing (inter)national crises such as the climate change crisis and biodiversity loss crisis, this means the sector will have to think differently to not...

Meijvogel, Marit (author)
This research aimed to design a modern-day quay wall that can host ecologically valuable species by using pervious concrete, which offers a suitable growing layer for plants due to its high interconnected porosity. The study investigated which vascular plant species are dependent on quay wall ecosystems in the Netherlands and determined the...

An extensive Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is used to determine the efficiency in reducing the carbon footprint of a graving dock. Firstly by identifying the hotspots in a base design, and then by comparing the various design alternatives. The focus is on reducing the amount of reinforced concrete used in the design of the dock floor by adding...

The construction industry in the Netherlands is taking numerous measures throughout the industry to achieve the possible reduction of CO2 emission or GHG emissions by 2050 to become carbon neutral. Based on the current situation the major focus is usually on the production and construction phase of a building or a civil infrastructure. To meet...

The application of vertical greening systems (VGS) onto building envelopes constitutes an innovative way to implement more green in the living environment. Especially in dense urban areas, where only limited space is available to integrate more horizontal greening at ground level, VGS have the potential to contribute towards creating a greener,...

The climate emergency calls for a global shift towards a low-carbon economy, to preserve natural resources and biodiversity, while limiting global warming and its consequences. This project focuses on the impact of distribution centres, intended for the storage of commercial goods. Warehouses are characterised by large flexible spaces and simple...

An experimental research into the use of basalt as reinforcement in concrete to reduce the ECI value of a concrete quay wall apron. In this research experiments with basalt minibars and basalt reinforced polymer rebars are performed to compare directly to steel fibres and steel rebars. With the test results 4 designs are produced resulting in...

van der Ree, Anouk (author)
In order to help the building and construction sector move towards a Circular Economy and lower its environmental impact, a better founded choice regarding the design and selection of building materials for a building’s load bearing structure is required. By investigating different design strategies that focus on optimizing various aspects of...

Jankie, Virania (author)
The aim of this research was to develop a user-friendly tool for the construction industry that contributes to the decision-making of making first choices towards circular building in the initial phase of project and helps in considering the factors that play a role when reusing elements and reducing the usage of primary raw materials. With...

Koullapis, Kendeas (author)
Over the last few years, the construction sector has experienced increasing demand for raw materials due to the rapid growth of the urban population. At the same time, most of the post-war buildings in Europe have reached the end of their service life. As a consequence, a period of intense demolition activities with<br/>significant waste...

Noordhoek, Thijs (author)
Waste generation is one of the main environmental problems and is a result of the current linear economy. Materials/elements are used whereafter they are wasted which is a problem considering the finite material supply on earth. Therefore, the current linear economy needs to move towards a circular one in which materials are reused and thus kept...

The construction and waste industry would move towards applying Circular Economy (CE) strategies, to meet the circular ambition of the Dutch government before 2050. In order to accelerate this transition, it is necessary to explore and adopt more innovative and sustainable solutions within the construction and waste sector. A small amount of...

Brouwer, Joost (author)
We are currently facing a transition of economy. Previous years were focused on a linear economy, consisting of the make-waste concept. The products that are made with raw materials are thrown away after its use. Unfortunately the Earth does not contain an unlimited source of materials and we need to focus on reusing materials. Concluding to...

Voglis, Stefanos (author)
Nowadays, the built environment of the Netherlands is making the transition from the linear to circular economy to meet the goals set by the European Union and the Dutch government of 50% circular economy by 2030. However, there is limited knowledge in the built environment for circular economy projects. In order to generate knowledge on the...

Bouwens, Noortje (author)
Global awareness has arisen for sustainable development to reduce the burden of the building sector on the earth’s ecosystems. One of these sustainable developments is the transition towards a 100% circular building economy with high-quality reuse. However, the sector has insufficient knowledge and understanding about the possibilities and...
