The circular economy is an economic model in which resources are circulated in a closed loop by adopting the R-strategies (e.g. reuse, recycling, and reduce) to minimize waste and pollution. Repurposing vacant buildings, known as adaptive reuse, is in line with the principle of circular economy, as it contributes to the reuse of the built assets...

One of the crucial aspects of BIM is the data rich environment connecting project information from different sub-sectors. (Mesároš et al., 2020). Therefore, developing models with consistent and trustworthy building data has gained significant importance in the industry. In contrast, incorrect or incomplete building data in a model could result...

The climate crisis and resource scarcity have compelled industries to adopt new environmental and circular standards. The Netherlands has set a goal of achieving a fully circular economy by 2050, with a 50% reduction in the use of primary raw materials by 2030. In the circular built environment, circularity strategies like reuse are being...

In recent years, the housing market has been under pressure due to growing demand for (inner-city) housing and a lack of supply. Housing is in high demand as a result of factors such as population growth, rapid urbanization, smaller households, the freezing of "mobility in houses, and so on. The low developing speed to cater to these issues...

This research aimed to determine whether offsite construction leads to a lower environmental impact than onsite construction. Further, it is researched how the environmental impact of offsite construction can be reduced. This is of great importance as the construction industry has a significant environmental impact. Specifically, offsite...

The aim of this research was to investigate the effects of implementing circularity in infrastructural construction projects. As a very polluting sector, circularity is becoming a more and more popular theme in the construction industry. Driven by both governmental regulations of reaching a full circular economy in 2050 and intrinsic motivation,...
