The Benefits of Mass Timber in the Circular Economy
Design + Build Theatre
This presentation will show why the circular economy is so important in the built environment. We’ll outline the key principles underlying circular design, and show why, as a biological nutrient, wood is inherently circular. We’ll review other jurisdictions that have adopted the circular economy to guide policy decisions, and introduce Planet Ark’s Circular Economy Hub. Australian mass timber projects will be used to highlight the benefits of dematerialisation and how to design for disassembly at end of life.
