Next Life | Repurposing Materials

Episode notes

Construction sites generate an enormous amount of waste.

Research from RMIT found that in 2017, 20.4 million tonnes of construction and demolition waste was generated in Australia. 33% of this waste went into landfills, with the rest either illegally dumped, stockpiled, recycled or reused.

What if instead of sending these materials to landfill, they can be salvaged and repurposed for a second life including as joinery and furniture. 

Revival Projects is the only builder in Australia to hold domestic and commercial registration, whilst operating a `100% sustainable manufacturing facility, exclusively using recycled materials.

In this episode, Laura Phillips, Head of Urban Advocacy at HIP V. HYPE sits, with Rob Neville, founder of Revival Projects and Liam Wallis, Director at HIP V. HYPE to discuss how the construction industry can better repurpose materials and embrace the circular economy.
