Reuse Materials

Circular consultancy

Re Use Materials is a data and consultancy firm that focuses on making the demolition, construction and management of buildings circular. We do this by finding out which materials are in a building and then giving them a value. If you have these two crucial factors in view, you can give concrete substance to effective and efficient use of raw materials and get the circular process going. One example is the linking of demolition and construction: old buildings are dismantled and the materials that are released are then reused in a new building. But circularity is more than reuse and elimination of waste. During the management process of real estate there is also much to be gained.

We ensure that the materials already present in the building can be used for as long as possible and thus extend the life of the building.

Re Use Materials focuses on the 4 activities: providing insight, management, consultancy and product development. Unique to our approach is the concrete interpretation we offer our clients in the field of circularity, sustainability, finance and social issues. We do this by drawing up frameworks for the demolition, further development of the design and realization of buildings. But also by helping people with a distance to the labor market to get back to work within projects.

Re Use Materials is aware that circularity must also have a bottom line. We guarantee that our approach is never more expensive than traditional ‘linear’ demolition and construction. Our clients remain in control, Re Use Materials takes care of the rest through a transparent and efficient process.

We share our knowledge about the latest innovations, circular work and develop products that make this process more concrete and applicable for our clients. An example of this is the unique data management system Cirdax. This software consists of various tools and methodologies that make it possible to gain insight into all the raw materials present, to calculate the value of these raw materials and to make them reusable (and therefore tradable). In addition, it makes circularity measurable, brings achieved results into focus and links up with the latest techniques such as Blockchain and BIM.
