Kamp C

On the 30th of October 2018, the REMs were set up at Kamp C in Westerlo (Belgium). Read the Kamp C article (in Dutch) on the REMs here:www.kampc.be/artikel/2019/02/27/BAMB-maakt-laatste-stop-op-Kamp-C. Going full circle the exposition has been situated at Kamp C only about 50 km from the the launch location at IBGE in Brussels back in January 2018.
Once again the design had to be adjusted to fit the available space. And once again the REMs proved to be up to the task, and fit snugly in the display area.
For 4 months the REMs were open to the public, who could sample the Materials Passports and see the reversible design principle in practice.

On the 19th of February a workshop on circular building was organised together with Kamp C. EPEA presented the background of the BAMB project and the REMs. The vital role of Reversible Building Design and Materials Passports for circularity within the built environment was explained.

Peter-Paul van den Berg, Managing Director at Kamp C, presented the vision and projects that are researched and developed at Kamp C with respect to circular building. He mentioned the lack of one unified definition of circular building, resulting in many parties working on only one aspect of the field. Kamp C aims to broaden the scope with its vision and work.

Michael Moradiellos de Molino of Drees & Sommer presented several projects in which certain principles of circular building have already been applied. The projects serve as great examples of how important a joint vision and good cooperation between partners are essential conditions for creating circular buildings.

The visitors also received a tour of the REMs, during which they were able to experience the possibilities of the Materials Passports and Reversible Building Design for themselves.
