  1. 1. Procuring Innovative and Sustainable ConstructionThe SCI-Network (www.sci-network.eu)Simon ClementICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability
  2. 2. Why construction?• 10% of EU GDP – turnover of €1,590 billion (2008)• Employs 7% of the EU workforce (only “on-site”)• Public sector: approx. 40% of construction spending• Over 40% of final EU energy consumption• 35% of EU GHG emissions• Over 50% of all extracted materials used inconstruction• Construction & demolition waste over 450 mill. tonnesp.a.Twin pressures – major budgetary restrictions & challengingsustainability targets Major need for innovative construction solutionsProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  3. 3. Construction, sustainability & innovation• Sustainability considerations:– Energy performance– Choice of materials– Water use– Indoor air quality– Life-cycle costs of ownership– Interaction with the urban environment• Some areas of innovation:– Innovative construction materials– Integration of new technologies - e.g. renewable energy systems– Increased efficiency of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies– Integrated design concepts– Resource efficient construction processesProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  4. 4. How? Challenge = exploitingthese innovations in publicconstruction projects, andencouraging furtherinnovation i.e.: How do we makeconstruction procurementinnovation friendlyProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  5. 5. Good practiceHarold Hill fire station, London• BREEAM Excellent, 42% less energy thannormal fire station• PV panels, solar heating, grey waterrecycling, motion and daylight sensorcontrolsAustrian Trade Union Federation,Vienna• Over 50% reduction in energyconsumption• Achieves Green Building andklima:aktiv standardProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  6. 6. Good practiceSeeCampus Niederlausitz, Germany• First passive house standard school inGermany through a PPP• Heating max. 15 kWh/(m²a)Emilia Romagna social housing, Italy• Energy Services Company (ESCo)guaranteeing annual energy savings of35%• Upfront investments covered by ESCoProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  7. 7. Key challenges• Lack of knowledge of innovative solutions on the market & in-house expertise on sustainable construction• Understanding how to procure in an “innovation friendly” way• Need to minimise risk attached to innovative solutions• Little effective dialogue between public authorities andsuppliers• Highly complex supply chains & procurement procedures• Split of budgetary responsibilities – little incentive to considerlife-cycle costsProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  8. 8. What is the SCI-Network?• A network of European public authorities sharingexperiences in driving innovative and sustainablesolutions for their public construction projects.• Funded by the EU Lead Market InitiativeSustainable constructionInnovationProcurementSCI -NetworkProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013

  11. 11. 1. Introduction2. Being an “Intelligent client”3. Setting targets and requirements4. Working with the market5. Choosing your procurement model6. Contracting, monitoring and supplier management7. Life cycle/whole life costingTopics coveredProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  12. 12. 2.a: Establish at the beginning a project team with the requiredmanagement, technical, legal and commercial skills.Ensure end user and facility manager involvement in theteam.2.c: Where in-house experience with innovative constructionprocurement is limited, consider contracting externalconsultants to advise or manage the processSample recommendations:Being an “Intelligent client”Procuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  13. 13. 3.a: Identify an ambitious minimum quantified energyperformance requirement for the construction project,based on nationally available assessment and certificationschemes.3.f: Frame procurement requirements in terms of desiredperformance, rather than defining a specific technology ortechnical solutionSample recommendations:Setting targets and requirementsProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  14. 14. 4.a: Inform the market of your intention to reward sustainabilityand innovation sufficiently in advance of tendering4.b: When tendering, clearly state your desire for a sustainableoutcome and your openness to innovative solutions4.c: Undertake early market engagement (EME) activities forall construction-related procurements above a minimumthreshold.Sample recommendations:Working with the marketProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  15. 15. 5.a: Identify a procurement model which ensures sufficientintegration and co-operation between design andconstruction teams6.a: Consider the use of incentivisation in constructioncontracts to encourage innovation. Examples includeintroducing performance payments, gain share clausesand negotiating contract extensionsSample recommendations:Choosing your procurement model andContracting, monitoring and supplier managementProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
  16. 16. 7.a: Identify a suitable model for WLC/LCC at project planningstage to inform decisions throughout the procurementprocess.7.e: Joint project teams should be established and ‘totalbudgets’ piloted with both procuring and operatingdepartments.Sample recommendations:Life cycle/whole life costingProcuring innovative and sustainable construction – The SCI-NetworkMARIE workshop, 16 May 2013
