We start by creating an overview of all the stakeholders involved and how they can be connected. We then look at the underlying business and revenue models. The goal is to combine our knowledge of the circular economy with the way we facilitate collaboration between parties in a way that ensures that knowledge is applied. Copper8 then supports the selection of the right parties and further shapes the collaboration. This means setting technical content goals, making good process agreements, calculating risk and profit-sharing rates and drafting the contract. At their core, our circular construction projects are always repeatable and/or scalable. Financially speaking, every party involved must move forward and there must be a gross sustainability profit.
We were one of the driving forces behind ‘Stadstuin Overtoom’, the first circular housingproject of the Netherlands. In this project we were involved with the selection of partners, and developed a tailored ‘Dynamic Incentivemodel’ in which a carrot/stick system was created to reward sustainable performance criteria. Since then we have been involved in several iconic circular construction projects including Alliander Duiven and the QO Hotel.
