Progress WS_Circular construction

The Construction Confederation in Belgium was to be hosted the Final ECCS ‘Circular Construction’ workshop together with ECCREDI (European Council for Construction Research, Development and Innovation) and member associations such as ACE (Architects Council of Europe), FIEC (European Construction Industry Federation), ECCE (European Convention for Civil Engineers), and others in Brussels on 12 May 2020. It was CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 crisis.

This conference was to feature a presentation of the overall results of the PROGRESS project (Provisions for greater reuse of steel structures) as well as key presentations from project partners on various aspects of the project.  

PROGRESS provides solutions for reusing components of single-storey steel buildings that are adaptable to other building types and materials.

The results of PROGRESS are particularly important in the current policy climate, reflecting the GREEN DEAL: circularity, re-use, waste management and commercial solutions. The presentations will include one on a prototype for a steel elements trading platform.

Another perspective on circular construction will be presented by the Project Drive0, which focuses on circular building renovation.

The goal of DRIVE 0 is to speed up the deep and circular process by improving a customer-centred circular renovation process. The Project Team is trying to improve circular renovations and make them environmentally friendly, cost effective and more attractive for consumers and investors.

This workshop is organized with the support of ECCREDI (, CONSTRUCTION CONFEDERATION ( and ECTP (
