Construction is one of the most significant industries that are responsible for the huge extraction of raw materials as well as large contribution to global greenhouse gas emission. Thanks to the digitalisation and the development of innovative technologies, the operation of construction projects has been transformed with advanced applications. However, it the adoption of platforms in the industry as well as the solution for secondary materials replacement remains as new and under-development areas. This paper generates a comparison across four case studies of recent platforms that support for circularity of reused, repurposed, and recycled materials in the construction industry. Most of the platforms are at the infancy stage of development, but it shows the potential for future expansion and more efficiency with multiple actors’ participation.
