Construction waste is a large untapped resource. In the residential area Upcycle Studios, the majority of the windows come from earlier buildings and the concrete has been cast using waste from the construction of the Copenhagen metro. The creator of Upcycle Studios is Lendager Group.
Lendager Group creates sustainable solutions within architecture and urban planning, strategy and analysis as well as upcycle product development. They are for example working on a new large-scale project, UN17 Village. They will be one of the first in the world to translate the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals into concrete measures in construction.
