  37. 37. © International Synergies Limited Version date 13 November 2013 Mapping a route to waste reduction Balfour Beatty Civils and Credential Environmental • Balfour Beatty Civils were looking for a sustainable option for diverting a canal while building a bypass around Selly Oak High Street in Birmingham. • Credential Environmental Ltd was able to supply tyre bales for the diversion of the canal, saving the need for steel structures and aggregates. The project was so successful that the bales were then put to use as retaining walls throughout other areas of the site • The synergy resulted in a cost saving to Birse Civils Ltd of £40,000. • A CO2 reduction of 375 tonnes was achieved, with a saving of 1,000 tonnes of virgin material and 6,000 tonnes of water. • Credential Environmental benefited from £9,000 in additional sales. John Daft – Balfour Beatty Civils: “With their local knowledge and supply chain partners NISP ensured the most practical and sustainable engineering solution was delivered on time and within budget.”
