Abstract: This publication is the main summary of COST Action RESTORE Working Group 3. It starts with a short introduction to the topic of Working Group 3 "Regenerative CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION" its organisation and activities. The main part of the publication consists of the reports of the four sub working groups "Procurement", "Construction", "Use & Operation" and "Second Life". These four reports contain a state-of-the-art analysis and analysis for the respective sub-theme, the identified gaps and give an outlook. The report is supplemented by the abstracts of some presentations given by the speakers at the Training School 3 (TS3) in Bolzano (IT) in March 2019 followed by articles from selected trainees of the Training School. The booklet concludes with the result from the Training School 3 challenge. The main question Working Group Three faced, is how a building can be built, operated and maintained in a regenerative manner. The easiest answer is that this can be achieved through integration of restorative and regenerative principles into the construction and operation process. However, the current state of the art in construction and operation do not include, or only includes partially sustainable or regenerative values. In regard to Regenerative Construction and Operation, and developing further the theoretical regenerative concepts of Working Group 1 and the design approaches of Working Group 2, a number of gaps, difficulties and opportunities become evident. Barriers can undercut a paradigm shift from the “business as usual” to a regenerative economy, making the realisation of regenerative projects difficult. The need for robust strategies to guide a transition from traditional construction process towards one which incorporates regenerative values is very clear. This publication collates the thoughts developed by the participants of Working Group Three, investigating and proposing robust approaches helping the paradigm shift, from the procurement to the operation and maintenance phases.
