LENDAGER ARKITEKTER RECEIVES FUNDING TO DEVELOP UPCYCLED CONCRETE

“A more valuable recycling of concrete waste” is the starting point for this project which strives to show new ways of recycling concrete in new buildings – a project that has been funded with DKK 3.700.000 (€495.000) by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency‘s development programme MUDP (Environmental Technology Development and Demonstration Programme).

As part of the transition to a more resource efficient society, the use of recycled concrete in the building sector is a major improvement and a step in the right direction. With this ambitious project the prospects and possibilities for using crushed building waste as aggregate in new concrete will be uncovered. The project will consists of strategies for dismantling of existing buildings as well as production, testing and demonstration of recycled concrete in new constructions. Development of recycled concrete elements that are designed for reuse will also be covered.

At Lendager Arkitekter we are looking forward to delving into the project which will be under way for the next two years in collaboration with Pelican Denmark Holding A/S, Pelcon Materials & Testing Aps and LH Hockerup.

LENDAGER ARCHITECTS PARTICIPATED THE CE100

The CE100 ANNUAL SUMMIT 2015, LONDON was all about circular economy. On the program were themes such as Circular Economy policy, material flows, energy systems and material innovation.

As a super sustainable office Circular Economy and resource ethics lies deep in our way of thinking urban planning, architecture and building materials. The CE100 was indeed a very interesting and positive experience.

WASTELAND – AN EXHIBITION ON WASTE IN SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE

At LENDAGER ARCHITECTS we have gone in depth with circular economy and the huge potential that lies in a resource efficient society.

We are really quite amazed by what our research and studies are revealing and we want to share it with all of you!

We are busy developing the exhibition “Waste Land – an exhibition on waste in small, medium, large.” An exhibition that aims at changing the prevailing negative perception of waste, and showing what the change of attitude towards waste resources can bring in beauty, value and joy.

The Dreyer Foundation has been so generous awarding the project 100.000 kr. We thank you sincerely!

We look forward to changing your outlook on waste!

DI TASK FORCE: EU BUILDING DIRECTIVE

European efforts to promote the green transition and modernize the energy systems are well under way. The agreement on the EU 2030 energy and climate policy and the Commission’s proposal for an Energy Union has embarked in a challenging time in which the EU building directive among others is to be revised. The revision of the buildings directive is a great opportunity to discuss experiences, advantages, disadvantages and opportunities in relation to the existing rules and guidelines. We are at LENDAGER ARCHITECTS very proud to contribute with our knowledge and ideas and support the movement towards a truly sustainable future.
