Procuring resource efficient construction projects

To maximise waste reduction and recovery, good practice must be adopted as early as possible, ideally through procurement. This online interactive guide aims to support clients (public and private) and contractors to enhance waste reduction, re-use, and recycling through design and resource efficiency.

It also encourages whole life costing and circular economy approaches and outcomes. It does this through clearly defining procurement requirements for the client and examples for the contractor on how to respond. This includes providing procurement professionals with the right technical language to use when embedding waste prevention into procurement specifications.
