Off-site manufacturing to minimise waste and deliveries

Sites should carefully consider the impact that their work will have on the environment and local community.

Ways to reduce deliveries to site and the amount of on-site waste produced should be actively sought.

Below is an example of how a site used off-site manufacturing to minimise their environmental impact:

  • The site piloted a fit-out contract utilising off-site manufacture;
  • This off-site manufacturing included pre-formed fully serviced walling panels, pre-cut bricks, pre-formed boiler skids and pre-fitted ducting trays;
  • Outcome targets included a reduction of the site programme from 8 weeks to 5 (based on similar previous projects);
  • Deliveries were reduced by more than 30%;
  • Onsite waste was also virtually eliminated.
