The training to design regenerative buildings and construction models, with the circular economy

How to activate the circular economy in the construction industry?

Issues about resilience, urban metabolism and resource management are increasingly being addressed by cities and manufacturers. As a major generator of waste and with the growing problems related to access to housing or pollution, professionals from the construction industry need to act quickly and efficiently.
To face these challenges, circular economy appears as an adapted solution to build a sustainable future and to proactively transform these constraints into opportunities.

To help you to answer these complex issues and take the lead in your industry, we train you to use new tools, mindsets and methodologies.


This training is open to employees, contractors, consultants or freelancers in the construction industry: real estate developers, architects, project managers, contracting authorities, managers, suppliers.

There are no preconditions. First insights about the value chain for building projects could be beneficial.


Synthesize and improve a building project, from design to end-of-life, to ensure value creation and positive impacts.
