BUILDINGS AS MATERIAL BANKS
A PATHWAY FOR A CIRCULAR FUTURE
SITE VISIT: CIRCULAR RETROFIT LAB
6 February 2019, Brussels, Belgium
Date: 06 February 2019
Time: 09.00-11.00 CET
Visit the BAMB pilot Circular Retrofit Lab at Vrije Universiteit in Brussels, that investigate and demonstrate how Reversible Building Design can prevent demolition waste when refurbishing existing buildings.
The Circular Retrofit Lab is one of the pilot projects of BAMB. Together with 15 industrial partners, VUB Architectural Engineering is finishing the renovation of eight student rooms using a wide range of circular building systems. The visit will give a general introduction to the project and the design and construction process, and more detailed insight in the reversibility aspects and lessons learned through visits to the experimentation lab (with prototypes of the interior wall systems) and the construction site.
The visit will start at the VUB Architectural Engineering department, 1st floor of building K on the VUB campus (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Pleinlaan 2 1050 Brussels (see map). The campus is easy to reach with public transport, using tram lines 7 or 25 (stop VUB), metro line 5 (stop Pétillon) or by taking the train to Etterbeek station. Building K is situated directly next to campus entrances 7 and 8. The campus is accessible by car, but parking spaces are limited.
