About:


Enquiry:

Brian Menzies of Enscape (formerly of EnviroCentre and author of the ICE Demolition Protocol and WRAP Aggregation Demolition Module) was looking for Design Know-how for a Zero Waste Scotland Project Regulated Open Tender:

Title:

  • Designing Out Construction Waste – Guidance and Pilot Support

Abstract:

  • ZWS wishes to appoint a contract for the development of a guidance document specifically aimed towards architects and designers, with the purpose of promoting and encourage the designing out of waste in new build and refurbishment projects.
  • Following launch of the guide, the contract will then require the provision of free advice and support to an architect or designer, to implement the recommendations in the guide in a live project and document all achievements.
  • There are three key elements to this contract:
    • 1) Preparing the guidance document
    • 2) Support to an architect and/or designer
    • 3) Promotion of the guide
  • ZWS proposes that the project begins with the Contract Initiation Meeting and concludes no later than 27 January 2017, although tenderers are encouraged to consider how the project can be fully delivered in advance of this date.

The second of many tenders for a large EU supported programme.

This requires development of a Design Guide to suit.

Brian Menzies approached Brian Murphy of GBE, having been a partner with BRE on a PII Parters In Innovation project in which CPD seminar material was first developed, then GBE are the ideal partner for this one.

The two Brians had previously worked together when Menzies developed ICE Demolition Protocol, Murphy developed the GBS Deconstruction and Alterations Specifications, their supporting appendix and on the WRAP Aggregation website Demolition Module (now gone)
