The different scenarios and choices        Picture of the VUB Van Der Meeren student housing, Circular Retrofit Lab in Brussels
will be described. An analysis of
all construction aspects needed to         © Stijn Elsen & Anne Paduart
implement these objectives will be
made. This study will be used as a
basis for the prototyping and the
construction of the pilots, since it
will be developed and used as the
construction dossier. The study is to be
completed in the summer of 2017.
