Developing circular renovation solutions for late post war housing

Creating a circular economy in the built environment is one of today’s big societal challenges. In the coming decades, the late post-war housing stock constructed between 1970 and 1985, will form the new renovation challenge in the Netherlands. By applying circular renovation solutions, the late post-war housing stock can be made more circular step-by-step.

In the PhD project REHAB the aim is to develop circular renovation solutions for the late post-war social housing stock in the Netherlands. Solutions are developed, in co-creation with housing associations and industry partners, from a strategic level to applied prototypes and demonstration cases. Throughout the development an integral approach is applied in which design, supply chain and business model are considered simultaneously.
