15th February 2016

Constructing Excellence in Wales (CEW) is working with Willmott Dixon Construction Limited and Torfaen County Borough Council as part of the Enabling Zero Waste initiative.

Enabling Zero Waste (EZW) is a CEW initiative designed to work with the construction industry to provide practical, positive and active intervention via professional waste management solutions to assist in enabling zero waste.

The initiative offers collaboration at all stages of the design, development and construction of sites providing mentoring and practical operational assistance, enabling a reduction in waste arisings and producing a detailed evidence base to demonstrate the achievability of zero waste to landfill.

Willmott Dixon has started the construction of three new primary schools in Torfaen. As part of the £15.6million project Willmott Dixon will build:

  • Blenheim Road Community Primary School – replacement on the current site, 315 pupil places
  • Ysgol Panteg – replacement of the Griffithstown and Kemys Fawr sites on a new site on Station Road, 420 pupil places
  • Llantarnam Community Primary School – replacement on the site of Llantarnam secondary school, 315 pupil places

All three primary schools are based on the same design, giving Blenheim Road and Llantarnam the potential to expand to 420 places in the future. It offers the Enabling Zero Waste (EZW) team at CEW a unique opportunity to directly compare waste production, management practices and site behaviours. The EZW team will work in collaboration with Willmott Dixon and their supply chain throughout construction to help identify any opportunities or solutions to reduce waste.

Updates will be provided as the project progresses.
