European H2020 project Drive 0: Driving decarbonization of the EU building stock by enhancing a consumer centred and locally based circular renovation process is starting, and Pich Architects, as one of the consortium partners will be there with pleasure and enthusiasm to innovate for sustainability.

The project identifies specific local or national drivers to trigger and to motivate end-users for deep renovation, supported by an anthropology based and environmentally friendly approach to make it costumer-centred and respectful of local geo-material areas, by following 4 steps:

  1. Developing proven deep renovation products and concepts based on local available materials and components, easy to install Plug & Play prefab solutions
  2. Developing attractive consumer centred business models based on circular renovation concepts supported by digitalization and gamification.
  3. Providing occupants with attractive and understandable information on total building performances in use.
  4. Providing stakeholders evidence of performance of the developed solutions by local study and demonstration cases initiated by ‘local drivers’.

To give a good kick-off to the project and to boost the rate of circular renovations, Huygen Installatie Adviseurs, the new tenant at Brightlands, together with the project partner ZUYD and Brightlands Chemelot Campus, they organise the Circular Renovation Symposium at the Center court building at the Brightlands Campus. We invite you to join the Symposium filled with keynotes and debates related to circular renovation principles, the market perspective, circular business models and more!
