The November special issue of the Civil Engineering journal, which focuses on educating engineers in the principles of the circular economy, has just been published.

The issue, which is exclusively available to ICE members to buy, looks at the challenges of the circular economy while showcasing creative approaches adopted by projects.

The issue features a guest editorial by James Norman of the University of Bristol, Tim Ibell of the University of Bath and Oliver Broadbent of Constructivist.

They look at debunking sustainability myths to help civil engineers reduce, reuse and repurpose.

Paper in the journal issue include:

  • Maximising the construction waste reduction potential – barriers and catalysts
  • Examples of carbon dioxide emissions data in the circular economy: highway transport
  • Repurposing part of Glasgow’s iconic Kelvin Hall as a film and television studio
  • Construction engineering at The Acre, UK: how innovative props facilitated building reuse
  • Procurement and contracting for climate change data and digital solutions
  • Embedding reuse into infrastructure projects by carrying out ‘pre-redevelopment audits’
  • Rejuvenation of existing structures in New Zealand’s land transport infrastructure
