Schools for the future

At the initiative of group Van Roey the research group VUB Architectural Engineering developed a practical guide for clients and designers who want to realise sustainable and circular school buildings.

The manual helps clients and designers on their way to sustainable and circular school buildings. Example project Het Vliegertje – Design&Build kindergarten & elementary school in collaboration with Van Roey - illustrates the aspired circular design qualities.
