Question: How can construction logistics be made safer, more sustainable and cut CO2? Answer: rethink the logistics.

Michael Barratt presentation

Construction generates huge amounts of carbon and one of the biggest polluters is how the industry moves its goods and materials to and from site. It makes sense to rethink construction logistics plans and that is exactly what Michael Barratt, Development Impact Assessment Manager does for Transport for London. In this online event on 23rd February at 12pm we will hear how Michael challenges project teams and works with them to introduce innovative, pragmatic and proactive approaches all geared towards reducing disruption, cutting environmental impacts and make the whole process safer.

It might mean something simple like changing delivery times or introducing a waiting area to stop HGVs queuing on roads unnecessarily or it might be promoting the use of different delivery methods.

One of the most radical ideas is the use of cargo bikes. Trials with Mace, FM Conway and Morgan Sindall have proved that power assisted cargo bikes can move materials quicker, more safely and reducing CO2 and in some instances outperform white vans.

Can bikes play a role in Welsh construction logistics? How do you minimise the impact of developments? How do you rethink logistics? Find out by attending this event to Rethink Construction Logistics and Be Safer, and Cut Co2 .
