The current research relates to the application of circular systems in the built environment. As of most projects related to the
built environment (BE), and as it much fits in the framework of the circular economy (CE), this study will be applied for social wellbeing
(WB) (goal no. 3 and No. 11 of the SDGs) for a particular age group. Sustainability is a delicate issue, for which sustainable
construction should be the front-of-mind of any relevant company. Regarding older adults (OAs) as focusing populations, action
plans must be carefully thought out; since sustainability is even more crucial for building a healthy environment for OAs. For this
purpose, circular systems are promising. However, for an action plan to take effect, studying the various influential aspects, such as
the support systems, locations, access to needed resources, government and community intervention, among others, are necessary.
Therefore, this study aims to define and emphasise the role of parties such as investors and housing corporations to put a win-win
effort in this specific field. At the same time, authorities could engage in a new or revised set of policies (the next phase). For this
article, the three main components are:
1. The problems and the cruciality of the circular frameworks.
2. A short overview of the particularity of the senior citizens,
3. The significance of the circular systems for the built environment for older adults,
Finally, the leading case study focuses on the population aged 65 years and above in the Netherlands.
