Galliford Try Construction rebuilt a 6 storey office in Stanhope Gate, London and achieved substantial waste savings despite being in a location where no space was available outside the building footprint for waste and materials management.


Solutions found to achieve these savings included a comprehensive materials management policy with just-in-time deliveries and procedures to reduce late variations.

Staff awareness and training on-site were promoted through different measures including: 

  • an introductory site booklet with waste minimisation concepts 
  • site posters calling "no space for waste" 
  • bad practice corrected by trade contractors

Materials ordered and used were rigorously audited and controlled, and contractual arrangements included economic penalties if targets were not met.
