HPP about circular building

Scarcity of building materials, skyrocketing energy prices and ambitious targets for a circular economy by 2050. Very good reasons to reuse building materials more effectively. The initiatives are there, but how do we accelerate?

In late September 2022, HPP sat down with a select group of contractors and architects to discuss this. Earlier, we shared 5 takeaways from this meeting. The conclusion? We want to reuse more and it is becoming increasingly possible. Yet there are still obstacles to be removed.

A great opportunity to meet again to come up with a concrete action plan. How can we position circular construction and reuse of materials, both inside and outside the HPP network?

Daan Zandbelt, architect and partner at De Zwarte Hond, was already taking the stage at the previous meeting to share his vision. On 25 January, he will elaborate on this. Afterward, there will be plenty of room to come up with concrete actions together.

When: Wednesday 25 January
Time: 17:30 walk-in, 18:00 – 19:30 followed by a dinner
Where: Rotterdam

General information
During the year, HPP organises a number of small, private meetings for decision-makers and guests from the HPP Community. The intimate atmosphere and private nature of these meetings enable participants to exchange thoughts on the basis of equality. The themes of these meetings vary from housing construction, legislation, spatial planning, finances, energy transition and topics related to sustainability and the climate.

This meeting will be organized for the HPP-REDA & HPP-PUBLIC community.
