- Master of Science 
This thesis provides potential enablers to overcome the current barriers to implement circular business models in the Norwegian built environment. Based on interviews with 20 participants from 16 different organizations from the construction industry, five barriers to a circular transition are identified: (1) lack of knowledge and limited access to information sharing, (2) financial factors associated with implementing circular methods, (3) lack of incentives and support, (4) lack of regulation and Governmental actions and (5) culture. Findings from this study provide insight into how the construction industry can overcome the barriers by (1) entering new collaborations, (2) establishing a proactive organization culture and (3) redesign planning production and supply. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
