Procuring resource efficient construction projects

To maximise waste reduction and recovery, good practice must be adopted as early as possible, ideally through procurement.

As an enabler of change, Zero Waste Scotland has developed an online interactive guide to reduce waste, and enhance re-use and recycling, through design and resource efficiency for construction, renovation and demolition.

This online interactive guide supports whole life costing - enhancing waste reduction, re-use, and recycling through design and resource efficiency. It does this through clearly defining procurement requirements for the client and examples for the contractor on how to respond.

The guide supports clients through advice on how to write procurement requirements and evaluate bids from design teams and contractors for the construction and maintenance of their building and civil engineering/infrastructure projects. It is suitable for public and private sector clients and stakeholders, including budget holders, commissioners, end users, construction teams, finance, procurement, facilities and waste managers, sustainability leads, contracts managers and others.

In addition, the guide supports contractors by setting out how to apply requirements and evaluate bids when appointing your supply chain and is suitable for tender managers, supply chain managers, sustainability managers, project managers, design teams, contracts managers and others.
