Abstract

The construction industry is highly energy intensive and causes significant environmental impacts and reduction in natural resources. A radical change in current practices is necessary for achieving a circular economy in the construction sector. Structural holes in the supply chain, coordination of diverse stakeholders, and resource management at the end of life of buildings are some of the key challenges for implementation. Technologies that spearhead the industry transition and their contributions to realizing a circular built environment are reviewed in this study.
