How do you drive the development of a circular economy when building a city? Digitalisation must be a key tool to meet this challenge. Giving materials an identity allows them to retain their value at the end of a building's life cycle. The creation of digital processes is the only solution to store and make available the vast amount of information required, from the material level to the urban scale.
