The best opportunities for improving materials resource efficiency in construction projects occur during the design stage. Implementing these opportunities can provide significant reductions in cost, waste and carbon. Key principles include:
The Net Waste Tool calculates the potential waste arisings on your construction projects, shows how you can improve your recycled content and quantifies the overall net waste.
Major contractors have been using SWMP's for many years. SWMP's encourage the effective management of materials and ensure waste is considered at all stages of a project - from design through to completion. WRAP has developed a series of free tools and guidance materials to assist the construction industry with developing and using SWMP's.
