A wealth of initiatives aimed at encouraging the reuse of steel in construction

In association with

What can be done to encourage the reuse of steel as the construction industry starts to engage with circular economy processes? In the latest issue of Steel Intelligence we look at the plethora of initiatives and research under way, from creating a market portal to the introduction of materials passports. Reuse is also the theme of our building study on Ashton Old Baths in Ashton-under-Lyne, now reborn as offices with the insertion of a new steel structure within the former pool hall. Meanwhile in Cambridge, Marks Barfield’s new primary school for the University of Cambridge is designed to be future-proof with flexibility to change both within and beyond its current footprint. We finish with SOM’s Exchange House, nominated by Maria Smith as a fine example of integrated architectural and engineering thinking.
