Unleashing the potential of “Materials as a Service” strategy to deliver sustainability

Thursday 14th September 2023

Theatre :  Construction Day  Technology, Innovation and R&D 


In this keynote presentation, we will dive into the revolutionary concept of “Materials as a Service” (MaaS) and its potential to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable production, with a specific focus on building and construction applications.

The building and construction sector is a significant contributor to resource depletion and environmental impact. However, by adopting a MaaS strategy, we can fundamentally transform the way materials are used, managed, and repurposed, while minimising waste and maximising resource efficiency.

Drawing on a case study, presented alongside our partner Architectural Facades (part of Brickability Group), we will showcase successful applications of MaaS in building and construction. Additionally, we will discuss the key benefits of adopting a MaaS strategy in the building and construction sector, including lower upfront costs, increased flexibility, reduced environmental impact, improved resource management, and enhanced collaboration across the value chain.
