Circular transition of social housing: generating environmental, economic and social co-benefits by design

The aim of the project is to contribute to the transformation of the public housing to a circular economy by developing a method ”Life Cycle Sustainable Assessment” where total economy, life cycle evaluation and social value are integrated. The method is being tested as a decision support for stakeholder involvement in new public construction and renovation to understand design and the role of stakeholder perspectives in the conversion of construction to circular economy and creates the basis for new circular economy advisory services and solutions.
