Abstract

The construction industry is in the transition from a linear to a circular economy (CE) where economic growth is decoupled from materials extraction. The increasing interest in CE requires construction companies to identify transition strategies, which entails an understanding of their circular performance along with the associated risks and opportunities. Furthermore, the construction industry has witnessed a surge in information-centric approaches, which has encouraged the development of Building Information Modelling (BIM), providing the possibilities for incorporating various analyses. Hereby, with the growing societal relevance of a CE, BIM technologies can be incorporated into CE-driven research, to facilitate the development of circularity assessment methods for monitoring and quantifying the progress toward a CE in a BIM environment.
