We are proud to have played our part in the Grosvenor Innovation Project. The consortium aims to enable the incorporation of circularity principles into construction projects through an evidence-based approach. The first stage of the material reuse workflow is now complete.
Elliott Wood and Grosvenor have produced A guide to deconstructing buildings for Circular Reuse. The guide, among other things, makes the case for early consultation with a Specialist Engineering Contractor like McGee. This involvement provides a valuable contribution to designers and clients and better integrates the expertise and experience of the contractor.
Through early engagement, we can help define the parameters of the project and incorporate principles of the circular economy. This can ultimately reduce the amount of construction waste from a project and provide both carbon and commercial gains; diverting waste from landfill; enabling reuse on and offsite; replacing the need for new materials, and reducing embodied carbon of the solution to maximise resource efficiency.
Our long history of demolishing and dismantling buildings means we are able to devise the optimum methodology and site logistics, which can unlock the potential reuse value of building elements.
