Circular building
The focus of the project is on future-proof construction and the creation of a high-quality, social housing estate.

Bureau Bouwtechniek and Nextensa, with the support of Flanders Circular and with Lake Side as a case study, are developing a tool for the BIM model environment that will give all parties involved an easy insight into the circular opportunities of their building project. In this way, we hope to introduce circular principles in the residential real estate market as well. (read more)
