In order to limit climate change and preserve the Earth’s resources society needs to transition from a linear to a circular economy. There is a need for new ways of working and new business models that can facilitate the transition process. In the Selma Lagerlöf Centre in Gothenburg, White – through strong will and creativity – has succeeded in creating one of 2019’s best Swedish interior design projects, with 92% reused furniture- resulting in 70 percent lower costs compared with the use of new materials.

In Uppsala, White is working on a project to transform two 1970s office buildings into modern premises that meet present-day requirements, while at the same time preserving or recycling as many of the original materials as possible. This is expected to save over SEK 100 million, as well as 3,800 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and almost two years of construction compared to demolition and building anew.

A starting point in all new building projects should be, can we reuse and adapt an existing building? Those questions are now much easier to find the answers to, thanks to our new service White ReCapture. The inventory of materials and building parts has been digitised and transparent through 3D scanning and specialist knowledge, which facilitates and maximises reuse.
