The UK construction industry currently creates around 100 million tonnes of waste per year (2006).
To become more resource efficient, the industry needs to reduce and recover much of the waste it produces.
A key way of minimising and managing construction and demolition waste is to design out waste in the first instance and specify recycled products where feasible, therefore closing the loop.
National Green Specification (NGS) with DTI funding has worked to assist this.
NGS has created specifications for recycled building products and workmanship clauses for waste management activities on construction and demolition sites.
The specifications and clauses will aid designers and specifiers in making informed choices in terms of the protection of the environment, material resources, embodied energy and embodied carbon, life expectancy and durability.
NGS is primarily intended for use by Construction Industry Design Professionals which include architects, civil and structural engineers, manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors, self-builders, [as well as] clients and financiers.
This event is designed to inform people of the outcome of the NGS project and its plans for the future continuing work in the area of sustainable construction.
Please see the attached document in PDF format for full description and programme/booking details. (NB. 2006)
