Circular Supplier Community Workshops

Since 2016 the EU funded BAMB Project, which brings together 15 partners from seven European countries, aims to enable a systemic and circular shift in the building sector. As a preliminary stage for future EU directives, the project shows opportunities of a digitized construction sector by applying tools like Materials Passports and the potential of Reversible Building Design.

In various workshops, stakeholder meetings and conferences the challenges, value propositions and business cases of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Materials Passports have been elaborated and are now shared with motivated stakeholders in the building sector.

The Circular Supplier Community Workshops give suppliers and interested actors along the building supply chain the opportunity to gain information about best practices and the advantages of Materials Passports, Circular Buildings, BIM and Cradle to Cradle in the building sector!
