Circular construction provides an answer to the environmental impacts of extraction, manufacturing, transport, installation, weathering and deposition of building materials.
Pollutant emissions from building materials and building products, microbial contamination from humidity and high carbon dioxide concentrations in indoor air all have impacts on human health.
Circular construction encompasses various concepts and techniques to maximise resource efficiency and minimise costs along the entire life cycle of buildings and infrastructure. The digital capture of materials in BIM and innovative business models ("product as a service") allow materials to be managed between different locations and parties.
Specific targets by the end of 2023
- Rapp works to ensure the use of recycled building materials and reusable components in all projects wherever possible.
- Rapp is committed to ensuring that all dismantling and excavation is reused where it makes sense.
- Rapp promotes circular construction concepts and is committed to the maximum use of ecological, pollutant-free building materials.
