Putting the reuse of building elements into the city’s political agenda has been one of Rotor’s tasks since its outset, and this project brings this long-term process one step further by creating a public platform for all actors involved in reuse.
Funded by the Brussels-Capital Region, and for the duration of one year (2017), a team comprising of Rotor, the Belgian Construction Federation (CCB-C) and Atelier 4/5 (a Brussels-based architecture agency) will take charge of different missions in relation to the reuse of building components. This includes: the organisation of frequent workshop sessions involving contractors, designers and public administrators on specific topics (reuse and public procurement, reuse and education, reuse and technical performance, etc.); the documentation and communication of exemplary reuse practices in Brussels and around Europe; an update of the Opalis website; and last but not least, hypothesising possibilities of how this platform can continue existing after this project.
