Waste Aware Construction

Who is involved?

Waste minimisation is part of the ‘lean construction’ ethos, and through a reduce, reuse, recycle context needs a holistic audience for consideration during the design, contractual and construction phases. This involves the clients, partner, designers, architects and contractors:
  • Client: Lay down environmental criteria or insisting in planning documents that waste minimisation is achieved.
  • Designers: Can reduce source wastage by specifying the correct resources and can influence use and specification of a particular type of material to minimise waste.
  • Suppliers: Can be encouraged to use less packaging.
  • Contractors: Minimise waste of materials on-site, use reclaimed/recycled materials and reduce poor handling procedures.
