  1. 1. NW Construction Knowledge Hub REDUCING WASTE IN CONSTRUCTION Morecambe, 12 November 2009 Tony Baldwinson Project Manager Centre for Construction Innovation
  2. 4. Centre for Construction Innovation Established in 1999 in response to the Rethinking Construction Agenda . 30 staff with varied skills and professions A not-for-profit enterprise centre within the University of Salford for NW
  3. 5. <ul><li>10 years of delivering excellence in the built environment </li></ul><ul><li>Showcasing Best Practice : </li></ul><ul><li>5 regional Construction Best Practice Clubs </li></ul><ul><li>2 specialist Best Practice Clubs – Sustainable Communities & Heritage Skills </li></ul><ul><li>Worked with 80% of NW Local Authorities </li></ul><ul><li>£2,500 million of construction and design work procured </li></ul><ul><li>5 waves of EU-funded support – helping over 850 SMEs </li></ul><ul><li>Over 500 organisations and 5,000 people used training programmes </li></ul><ul><li>CUBE Venue, Portland Street, Manchester – 18,000+ visitors per year </li></ul>Centre for Construction Innovation
  4. 6. Sustainable Development and Construction Sustainable Development Sustainable Construction Sustainable Communities Environmental Social Economic Triple Bottom Line
  5. 7. Sustainable Construction <ul><li>Buildings use 46% of all energy – up to 70% in major cities </li></ul><ul><li>Construction uses 53% of primary materials </li></ul><ul><li>Construction has second biggest environmental footprint after food </li></ul><ul><li>13 million tonnes of materials delivered and not used </li></ul><ul><li>90 million tonnes of waste – 3 times domestic </li></ul><ul><li>21% of all hazardous waste </li></ul>
  6. 8. The NWDA Sustainability Standard
  7. 9. <ul><li>less carbon, less waste, more jobs </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>This project is to give small construction firms in the North West the knowledge to better manage their carbon and waste impacts. </li></ul><ul><li>  Small firms need this knowledge to win more work, make buildings greener, create new jobs, and play their part in our journey to a new, low-carbon prosperous economy. This project will assist 200 small and medium-sized firms, safeguard 300 jobs and help create a further 300 jobs in the North West.  </li></ul>Northwest Construction Knowledge Hub

  10. 12. <ul><li>The Project: </li></ul><ul><li>promotes knowledge transfer between HEIs and Industry to develop innovative products, services and construction practices to reduce waste and carbon emissions; </li></ul><ul><li>builds capacity within SMEs so that they become more profitable, more productive and economically stable; </li></ul><ul><li>assists local construction enterprises to adopt sustainable approaches in design and delivery; helping to embed principles of recycling, waste management and carbon reduction in all aspects of design, procurement, construction and demolition; </li></ul><ul><li>helps to minimise waste, maximise recycling and reduce carbon emissions at all stages of the construction process. </li></ul>Northwest Construction Knowledge Hub
  11. 13. Primary Policy Objective – Carbon Policy – reduce carbon emissions from buildings – zero net carbon post 2020 Goal to minimise the use of fossil fuels used by buildings in heating, lighting and ventilation by either: <ul><li>reducing the requirement for energy overall, or </li></ul><ul><li>using non-fossil fuels such as wind, solar or other renewable sources </li></ul>
  12. 14. Carbon – Potential Actions <ul><li>Energy Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>Insulation/Air-tightness </li></ul><ul><li>Passive Solar Design </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Ventilation </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Efficient Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Combined Heat & Power </li></ul><ul><li>Other Energy Efficient Plant & Equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Efficient Management Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable Energy </li></ul><ul><li>Photo Voltaic Cells (PVCs) </li></ul><ul><li>Passive Solar Heating </li></ul><ul><li>Wind Turbines </li></ul><ul><li>Ground Source Heating </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass Boilers & CHP </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Generated from Waste </li></ul>
  13. 15. Primary Policy Objective – Waste Policy – divert waste from landfill sites – zero net waste post 2020 This can be done by either <ul><li>Reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill by minimising the use of materials, the reuse, on-site or off site of materials, recycling waste or using waste for energy recovery, or </li></ul><ul><li>Using materials that have been made from other peoples recycled waste </li></ul>
  14. 16. Waste – Potential Actions <ul><li>Waste Minimisation </li></ul><ul><li>Design Solutions </li></ul><ul><li>Material Procurement </li></ul><ul><li>Construction Logistics </li></ul><ul><li>Offsite Construction </li></ul><ul><li>Packaging </li></ul><ul><li>Demolition & Regeneration </li></ul><ul><li>Utilities </li></ul><ul><li>Waste Management </li></ul><ul><li>Site Waste Management Plans </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled Materials </li></ul><ul><li>On-Site & Off-Site Recycling </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Aggregates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plasterboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wood </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Glass </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plastics </li></ul></ul>
  15. 17. Secondary Policy Objective – Whole Life Value Policy – achieving value for money from projects The Whole Life Value of a development takes into account many things including the costs of acquiring it (including consultancy, design and construction costs, and equipment), the costs of operating it and the costs of maintaining it over its whole life through to its eventual disposal
  16. 18. Secondary Policy Objective – User Satisfaction & Comfort Policy – ensuring that developments deliver buildings that support the activity that goes on inside them through good design and well managed buildings. User Satisfaction and Comfort are driven by a wide variety of issues from aesthetics, management and control of lighting and heating, movement in and around the building and other issues that confront users. This is similar in some ways to Place Shaping and Adaptation, but it regards the specific building and the people inside it as the core issue, rather than how the building fits in its surrounding area.
