Re-use of plastic off-cuts as packers for doors and windows

At Structure Consulting’s £7.1 million food production facility project in Park Royal, London, waste plastic cladding trim off-cuts are utilised as an alternative to 1mm plastic packers to pack out door frames & window sills.

This is contributing towards our BREEAM target score of 3 credits by optimising resource efficiency.

There are several benefits to using these packers, such as:

  • Re-use of waste materials therefore diverting from landfill;
  • Cost saving achieved by not throwing into skip and not having to buy packers;
  • The process is simple you just need to trim the plastic to size and pack the door frame or component that requires packing.
