Linear to Circular Material Flow
Delivering high-standard circular products starts with the dismantling and “harvesting” of materials during the demolition phase. That is why we also work closely together with M. Heezen, a Dutch family business that not only specializes in demolition, remediation and infrastructure technology but also in recycling.
Together we look at how we can turn linear material flows into circular ones and offer them a second life.
M. Heezen has noticed in practice that they can often reuse much more demolition waste than clients expect in advance. For example, rubble and soil can often be reused on site.
By working together with demolition, civil engineering and landscaping companies on making the switch to circular construction, products can be designed more efficiently and materials can be reused as much as possible. In this way, raw materials and energy can be used more efficiently.
Because our custom product will be used as flooring, we develop two formats of brick slips that can be laid in a pattern.
Development starts with a grey brick slip with the highest possible amount of demolition waste from the demolished town hall. Based on our results, we will continue to fine-tune the product to the final end product. Make sure to keep an eye on this page for updates on this process.
Demolition has started in 2021 and construction is scheduled to be finished in 2023.
