Project summary

PREUSE is an international research project that aims to help local and regional public authorities improve the management of their material resources and implement solutions within their territory to reclaim and reuse building materials. 

Despite an existing and growing commitment to adopting circular practices in public construction work, organising the reclamation and reuse of materials remains a challenge for many actors. For 5 years, the project partners will be working, studying and field-testing strategies to create  : 

- A strategy for developing reuse centres for construction materials salvaged from public works sites.

- A series of local action plans for the future development of reuse centres.

- 3 pilot projects to test innovative formats of reuse centres.

- Training programmes in the reclamation and reuse of construction materials for public and private organisations

The ultimate aim is to provide public authorities, construction industry players and local communities with tangible, reproducible solutions to encourage the reuse of construction materials in their areas. To achieve this, the project's approach is based on collaboration between public authorities and reuse experts to implement the proposed solutions directly and operationally. The partnership draws on existing solutions, developed in particular by the project partners, and on the diversity of initiatives in the NWE region to ensure that these innovative solutions are more easily disseminated and adopted.
