futuREuse supports a reuse economy, where use starts with reuse

futuREuse was born from the FCRBE Interreg NWE project, of which Salvo is the main UK partner. FCRBE, which stands for Facilitating the Circulation of Reclaimed Building Elements, does not exactly roll off the tongue, so we like to hum F-C-R-B-E in the tune of Aretha Franklin’s classic, 'Respect.’

Respect is particularly fitting given that only 1% of building materials are reused in northwest Europe, and we are all responsible to show a little more regard for the high environmental impact and net loss of economic value if we fail to reuse.

futuREuse is a new platform striving to decarbonise construction by championing reuse of reclaimed materials. This is a growing destination for resources and a community to share knowledge on reuse practices.
