Circular cleanroom design (CCD)
By building according to circular principles, we use fewer primary raw materials. High-quality recycling and circular design are key to enable this. A linear design process proceeds chronologically: from idea to detailed design, after which it is built. After completion follows the maintenance phase. In a circular design strategy, we think the other way round: from end to beginning. Our policy is to make circular design principles a standard part of our work. To make our vision concrete, we work with a materials passport. This 'passport' records which materials are present where in an object, as well as the quantity and value of the materials. This materials passport also records maintenance and dismantling information. By 2024, we aim to deliver 75% of our projects with a material passport and circularity score. Such a score shows how circular objects are and provides information on whether and how objects can be disassembled again.
