Selective demolition of health care centre in Mikkeli

Mikkeli has started one of its demonstration actions within CityLoops: using circular material management methods it is carrying out a circular demolition of the Pankalampi Health Care Center. To do so succesfully, a circular pre-demolition audit will first identify potentially recoverable materials and their characteristics, in order to carefully remove and separately store different component and material types.

After this selective demolition procedure, Mikkeli will digitally track the materials via a material passport. Eventually these materials will be given a new use on a construction material marketplace. Miksei Mikkeli will promote use of the marketplace by other construction sector actors, private and public, both to offer and to obtain secondary construction materials.

In addition to its work on the Pankalampi Healh Care Center, Mikkeli will also use the same selective demolition procedure on the Tuukkala hospital. More information about that will follow soon.
