Circular Design

Design healthy, low-carbon and 0-waste buildings

Our Circular Design package helps designers and engineering professionals configure low-carbon and circular buildings that maximise their value over time using our Circular Signature.

This offer will allow you to:​
Access a library of 10,000 materials passports
Evaluate your design
Deliver Materials Passports to your clients
Deliver "Circular Ready" buildings
Specify products from reuse

Compare and select from over 10,000 circular and low-carbon, generic and manufacturer, digital materials passports using the Upcyclea Library.

Measure the embodied carbon, health and environmental impacts of your projects, thanks to our Circular Signature® tool from myUpcyclea®.

Easily capture material data by associating generic or manufacturer passports to your specification or BIM model.

Deliver to your customers their buildings digital banks of materials, which will allow them to manage their resources in a circular way.

Access to a growing catalogue of reused products from the Romulus urban mine.

The offer includes:

  • Unlimited user access.
  • Unlimited time.
  • Unlimited revisions.
  • Unlimited project size.

Fee: £1000 per project registration.

Select the best circular products for your projects

Thanks to the Upcyclea library of thousands of Materials Passports rated by our experts, you can compare and choose the products and materials best suited to the environmental and health requirements of your projects. 

The Passports contain EDP data that are synchronised with dozens of international databases.

The Digital Bank of Materials

The Digital Materials Bank is the final form of the asset. Here, the building has been fully or significantly characterised with Materials Passports and is ready to act as a store of valuable deposits that can be exchanged, traded or recovered as they reach the end of their lifecycles. Digitial Materials Banks are built with disassembly in mind, to maximise resource recovery during the refurbishment or deconstruction.

We provide you with a Digital Materials Bank in order to give you and your clients an overview of the building’s as-built character, which can be easily updated during renovations and fit-outs.

This gives the building owner the ability to decarbonise the building further throughout its lifecycle by specifying low-carbon, circular and reused materials.

The building Circular Signature

Our Circular Signature is an evaluation tool that allows users to measure the environmental impact of your buildings, based on real data from the actual products/materials that comprise them.

Consider different options, review the outcome of design choices, run scenarios and compare different results using the actual or propsoed products and materials for the project.

Get information on the embodied carbon footprint (according to EN 15978, RICS, RE2020 calculation mode), the degree of non-toxicity, circularity and the residual value of the building to meet your clients’ environmental objectives.

Moteur du réemploi

Romulus (Reuse OMaterials Using Local Unitary Stakeholders) is the urban mine being deployed in UK by Upcyclea, Maconda and several partners.

It works by importing the results of hundreds of Pre-Demolition Audits (PDA) and automatically establishing the correspondence between needs and reusable deposits. 

With Romulus, it becomes possible for all the local supply chain to regenerate, reuse or refurbish used products to prevent resource scarcity and reduce carbon footprint.

In this context, the ability to characterise used (past and future) resources by using materials passports becomes a powerful tool for managing complexity.

We are on the learning curve of the digital data automation process, and Upcyclea is helping us capture product and material data, and manage buildings designed as material banks.
