Did you know that less than 8% of demolition waste is reused in their full extent within the construction industry 1. This results in wastage of materials that could be reused, while the scarcity of primary raw materials only increases. This is really a shame!
That is why we invite members of KOers to get to know the world of reuse by participating in the ‘Reuse of existing building elements’ workshop at the 10th of February. We depart from Eindhoven and first stop at a construction project that uses reused building elements. In the afternoon there will be a workshop in groups about the reuse of existing building elements.
