RE:Source hosted two sessions at this years conference that was held 17-18 October online and in Reykjavik in Iceland. You can now watch the sessions afterwards.
How to unlock the value of existing space and materials in buildings
As our cities grow, the demand for new buildings and infrastructure rises. But do we really need to build more? How can we maximize the value of our existing structures and spaces? What are the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead? And when we do decide to build, how can we incorporate as much reused material as possible?
Learn about how innovative business models can unlock hidden values in existing buildings. Hear about how repurposing and redesigning can breathe new life into buildings, extending their usefulness and reducing the need for additional construction.
At the end of the session there is a prize-giving ceremony for InfraAwards, an innovation challenge with focus on resource efficiency within transport infrastructure. InfraAwards is a joint effort by RE:Source and InfraSweden.
