Design, Construction and the Circular Economy

 Austin Sustainable Building Materials Forum: Design, Construction and The Circular Economy banner

Building materials are a big deal. Building booms create competition not only for labor and equipment, but also for construction materials—affecting supply lines, timelines and bottom lines.

At this Sustainable Building Materials Forum, designers, builders, remodelers and advocates for reuse and recycling addressed the Circular Economy, greater resources productivity, reducing waste and avoiding pollution.

The forum featured an innovative product showcase, resource-efficient case studies, and town hall discussions on construction material hot topics and a tour of indoor air quality labs. Access many of the presentations from the programs below:
