This paper is structured in two directions. The first one presents issues related to technical losses within a construction project. The second one analyzes the integration of technical losses resulting from building materials in a circular economy, as they occur from 2 projects. Each project assesses costs and specific situations for each type of material based on the profile of each presented project. Benefits of technical losses management from building materials and waste are identified as they can be engaged into the circular economy, exemplified for the 2 analyzed projects. In the case of concrete, we bring to the attention of readers that its casting in the elements of site's evolution must be closely correlated with the casting of the elements of the site organization, for the 2 budgets to overlap and only one expense is made. For concrete steel it is important that its optimization is made from the shaped iron fasteners as they are part of the purchase cost, therefore they do not represent a supplementary cost for the project’s budget. The importance of finding the optimal solution for reuse of used materials or technological losses brings us to the point in which the construction industry needs to change its approaching strategy on materials consumption.
