<b>Purpose:</b> The construction industry is responsible for great amounts of resource consumption, waste generation and both carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union. The currently still predominant linear mindset of take-make-consume-dispose must shift to reduce the industry’s environmental impact and enable the transition...

The post-war neighbourhood Boerhaavewijk in Haarlem is an example of rational modernist urban planning following the design guidelines of air, light and space. Repeated typologies or ‘stamps’ of terraced housing and apartment buildings created by industrialised methods of construction were the answer to the population boom experienced in the 60s...

The life span of buildings is currently largely determined by economic motives. This often results in a large number of vacant buildings, or unsubstantiated demolition. Since the building industry has the most significant consumption of natural resources compared to other industries worldwide, it is important that the ecological motive gets...

In recent years, the Netherlands has witnessed a growing housing shortage, prompting an ambitious plan by the government to address the demand through increased construction of new housing until 2050. Moreover, as part of environmental commitments, new dwellings and existing housing stock must align with current energy performance standards and...

Sitwaking is an adaptive sport derived from wakeboarding, targeting wakeboarders with a physical disability. Although the sport is growing each year, the accessibility level of the sport is low. Investment costs are high and existing products are targeted towards experienced riders.<br/>Relative to wakeboarding, a different setup is required to...

This thesis proposes the YpsoMate Refill concept design: an autoinjector that can be refilled at a Refill Hub to reduce its environmental impact. After five reuses, it has a 60% lower CO2e impact than the single-use YpsoMate. The concept design aims to inspire the non-profit Alliance to Zero in their journey towards a sustainable pharmaceutical...

This design thesis explored the possibilities of recycling medical waste from the Intensive Care Unit of the Erasmus MC Hospital in the transition towards Circular ICUs. Through a combination of qualitative research methods, such as observations, interviews and waste audit, the medical context and the waste composition were explored. By...

Rijkswaterstaat aims to build circularly from 2030 onward, with the purpose of having a fully circular economy by 2050. Therefore, the aim of this study is to design a reusable modular superstructure, with a small span, which can replace an existing so-called volstortligger superstructure. This is a structure that Dura Vermeer often uses and it...

Circular Design, as a practice and approach, has grown in popularity in the last decade, with academics and industry alike proposing many strategies and methods that facilitate this in products. Yet, very few day-to-day products are actually circular. Therefore, in this chapter, we sought to analyse and reflect upon what progress Circular...

The built environment can become more sustainable by gradually replacing building components with circular ones. Kitchens are a logical component to be made circular, given their relatively short lifespan, product-based nature, and affordable prototypes. Since various designs for circular kitchens can be developed, understanding the feasibility...

Implementing circular building components can contribute to the transition to a circular economy. There are many possible circular design options for building components. Knowledge on which options are feasible to implement remains limited. Existing feasibility studies do not compare multiple circular design options, building components and...

Facing circular transition challenges, building circularity should be evaluated in the early design phase to reduce the risks of circular and environmental performance problems found in later project phases. However, due to the current design workflow, such practice is hindered because there is not enough information to evaluate building...
