The SB&WRC project is supported by the European program Interreg VA France (Channel) England and receives financial support from the ERDF.


In order to prepare the market for the development of bio-sourced and waste-derived building materials and to facilitate the massification of the prototype materials developed in the framework of the SB & WRC project, the mobilization of construction professionals is an essential step.

Initially, to raise the awareness of French and English building professionals and identify the expectations of waste and bio-based materials, Nomadéis, in support of Construction 21 and ASBP, will survey 2,000 French and English professionals through online consultation and at conferences and related events. Manufacturers, distributors of building materials, architects, contractors, construction companies and craftsmen will be able to express their perceptions, practices and expectations regarding these materials.

Based on a questionnaire designed specifically for the project and available on online software, this survey will aim to:

  • Understand the perceptions and expectations of professionals regarding bio-sourced construction materials and waste;
  • Provide input for project partners on the types of materials most suitable for professionals in the building sector;
  • To develop arguments adapted to the different target audiences in order to convince the greatest number of French and English professionals of the comparative advantages and performances of these materials.

This cross-border consultation follows a number of analyses conducted by Nomadeis in which professionals in different French regions and overseas territories have been surveyed on the uses, trends and opportunities of bio-based materials and circular economy practices in construction. It is expected that more than 10,000 French professionals will have been solicited in this context, with the SB&WRC survey determining the particular perceptions and expectations of actors in the Interreg France (Manche) England area.
