About the Course

As global awareness of environmental impact grows, the construction sector faces increasing pressure to adopt methods that minimise resource consumption, reduce waste, and enhance the lifecycle sustainability of buildings. This 5-day interactive Sustainable Construction in a Circular Economy training course is designed to equip professionals in the construction industry with the essential knowledge and strategies to embrace sustainable practices within a circular economy framework. It aims to delve into the principles of circular economy tailored explicitly for construction, offering practical insights and methodologies to achieve these objectives effectively.

Delegates will comprehensively understand circular economy concepts as they apply to construction, exploring how to integrate these principles into everyday practices. By focusing on sustainable materials selection, efficient resource management, and lifecycle design considerations, they will learn to optimise building processes for environmental and economic benefits. It will also highlight the importance of strategic procurement, leveraging renewable materials, and fostering collaboration across the construction supply chain to achieve sustainability goals.

Throughout the training program, emphasis will be placed on practical implementation rather than theoretical concepts alone. Delegates will engage in discussions on overcoming challenges and seizing opportunities to adopt circular economy practices within construction projects. This approach prepares professionals to meet current regulatory and market demands and positions them to lead in sustainable innovation within their organisations and the broader construction industry. As sustainability continues to drive industry standards and client expectations, it equips delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate and excel in this evolving landscape.

Core Objectives

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Remember the key principles of circular economy as they apply to sustainable construction practices
  • Explain the concept of lifecycle sustainability in building design and construction
  • Apply sustainable materials selection criteria to optimise resource use in construction projects
  • Analyse the environmental impact of construction activities and propose mitigation strategies
  • Evaluate the efficiency of resource management practices in reducing waste and enhancing sustainability
  • Develop strategies for integrating circular economy principles into construction project planning and execution
  • Communicate the benefits and challenges of sustainable construction in a circular economy to stakeholders effectively
Training Approach

This training course employs a blend of interactive workshops, case studies, and practical exercises to foster deep learning and application of circular economy principles in construction. Delegates will engage in hands-on activities that simulate real-world scenarios, allowing them to apply theoretical knowledge to practical challenges. Additionally, group discussions and peer-to-peer learning will encourage collaboration and the exchange of insights, enhancing understanding and implementation readiness among delegates.
