I loved the detail in this recent article on upcycling a Sydney office tower. The list of financial AND environmental benefits – from increased floor space and construction time savings to reduced greenhouse gas emissions – was heartening.

Have you noticed that when you’re sensitised to a subject, you start finding resources everywhere?

I’m not even sure what online trail I followed, but while I was exploring the subject of upcycling commercial buildings, I found a Google paper on
Accelerating the Circular Economy through commercial deconstruction and reuse

So together you have a real world example of building upcycling along with more information. Enjoy!
