Timber is a widely used material in construction, which with a little effort can easily be reused on site, or recycled off site.
At 5 Broadgate, Mace established a timber reuse area where unwanted timber materials could be temporarily stored for reuse by any contractor.
Timber that could not be reused on site was provided to the Woods Forever Timber Recycling Project, a not-for-profit, community based, social enterprise based in Stapleford Tawney, Essex for offsite reuse and recycling.
200 tonnes of timber waste was reused or recycled, with none landfilled, equivalent to the weight of six underground carriages, and saving 117 tonnes of carbon emissions (equivalent to a car travelling round the world three and a half times).
