HUB&STOCK

HUB&STOCKは建築分野における資源循環の文化形成を促進します。
限られた地球資源が枯渇しているなか、建築現場から出る余剰資材や製造元の廃盤品による、産業廃棄物の増加が建設業界の課題となっています。
これを「建築資材ロス問題」と呼んでおります。
私達はこれら建築資材ロスを回収および再流通させることで、資源を再循環させる仕組みを構築します。つまり、まだ使えるのに捨てられそうになった資材を探し出し、
これらをまずは買い取ります。そうすることで建築現場は余剰資材を捨てることなく建築を作れます。そしてメーカー廃盤品は活用してもらえる人々に届けられます。
HUB&STOCKが買取り回収した資材はアウトレット価格として企業から個人ユーザーまでがお手頃価格で買うことができます。
こうして捨てられる運命であった商品を再流通する仕組みをつくることで、建築業界で発生する余剰品・廃盤品を余すことなく循環する仕組みとなります。
建材をサーキュレートすることで廃棄物が減り、資源の有効活用と環境負荷の低減に貢献します。

“Our vision is to realize a scheme where architecture can be made without creating any waste.”
The production of architecture is essentially a one-off affair. As no two pieces of land or environments are precisely the same, every building is a one-of-a-kind product. Therefore, it is challenging to produce a building without a surplus of materials. However, due to structural problems in the construction industry, more materials are thrown away than we think. HUB&STOCK is a project to rescue and reuse materials produced more than what is actually needed.
The process of this circularization starts from collecting unused materials from construction sights and out of date materials from suppliers. The main point of this is to “buy” all these materials as they are not trash yet. Once the materials are collected HUB&STOCK will manage them within their own data system so that consumers can buy them at a low cost. Consumers consists from a wide range; from mega companies to individual DIY users. This means that this project is open for anybody who is willing to use and rescue these products. Unless if the consumers will not consider them as a choice, the materials all have a destiny to be thrown away.
HUB&STOCK is a win-win situation for the environment, the economy and the building industry, and may well bring a new culture of “resource circularization” to the building industry.
