On the 10th of December 2020, a CHARM Co-Creation Day was being held. The CHARM partners gathered online to participate in a workshop on tendering and contracting. Prof. dr. ir. Vincent Gruis and dr. ir. Ad Straub of lead partner TU Delft organised and hosted this meeting.
Workshop on tendering and contracting
The four social housing organisations (Accord, Paris Habitat, Woonbedrijf and Zonnige Kempen) are European front runners in circularity in the built environment. This workshop dealt with the questions: How do you (or housing associations) build forward on the specifications for circular projects (see deliverable WP T1 D3.2) and cooperate with market parties in achieving and maintaining your circular ambitions and goals; now and in the future?
Guidelines tendering and contracting
Main goal of this workshop was to evaluate the tendering and contracting of the (first) demonstration exemplars, and to recommend on tendering and contracting for follow-up circular projects by CHARM partners and other social housing organisations. This is also one or the deliverables of the project as laid down in Work Package T1 D3.2 ‘Common guidelines for applying guidelines for tendering and contracting’. The common guidelines for applying tendering and contracting are expected to be ready in Spring 2021.
