Circular economy guidance for construction clients: How to practically apply circular economy principles at the project brief stage
This guidance is designed to enable construction clients to include more ambitious circular
design and construction principles in project briefs for non-domestic built assets.
This is achieved by addressing the common commercial obstacles that clients may encounter,
and providing practical support and evidence to assist them in setting clear circular objectives
for their construction projects.
The guidance also aims to ensure that the construction supply chain can effectively deliver
circular economy goals and that budget, project management, and timescale risks are all
minimised and mitigated.
