Case Study: Kier Construction - Reuse Audit & Facilitation

The Challenge: Kier Construction was charged with managing the remodelling and refit of UWE’s Bower Ashton campus in Bristol. Kier appointed LA Moor to strip out and demolish as required. UWE required commitment to high reuse and recycling and whilst LA Moor has very high rates of recycling, Collecteco was approached to consult on any potential reusable items on site.

Collecteco carried out an audit to identify reusables and these included carpet tiles, light fittings and sections of insulation board. There were a number of challenges with this site, including the presence of asbestos, that meant that reuse opportunities were not as abundant as with other sites. However, this project demonstrates that there is always a case for considering opportunities to reuse before recycling, energy recovery or landfill.
