Maximising re-use in construction

Re-using materials on construction sites can save project costs by reducing the demand on new building materials and reducing waste disposal costs.


Our ‘Maximising re-use of materials on-site’ guide is will help you identify the materials that are commonly wasted on construction and demolition sites and describes how these may be recovered and re-used.

The guide is for everyone involved in construction projects including design teams, principal contractors, sub-contractors and clients. It covers:

  • Demolition and excavation
  • Refurbishment
  • New build

Implementing re-use activities on-site can help you:

  • Save costs through a reduced need to purchase primary materials and reduced disposal and transportation costs
  • Identify re-use opportunities and the available services required to implement them
  • Gain evidence to support environmental management systems such as BREEAM or ISO14001
