This book
is a call to arms to all architects, designers and built environment
professionals.



To avoid a
climate catastrophe and achieve a regenerative built environment, the use of
new materials and any excess waste in resources need to be cut out from the very
beginning of the design process. This requires far-reaching change in
established industry processes.



How might
this begin? What are the key fundamentals you need to know? How can a more
effective model be applied? This book, a much-updated second edition of the
author's previous work Building Revolutions, answers all your questions.



Inspiring,
but never overwhelming, the Handbook to Building a Circular Economy is
your must-have companion to helping create a more sustainable future. It explains
in simple and practical terms how the principles of a circular economy can be
applied to the built environment, thereby reducing the resources required to
construct, fit-out, maintain and refurbish buildings.
