Enabling Zero Waste: civil engineering projects

Constructing Excellence in Wales is inviting expressions of interest from civil engineering schemes keen to be included within the Enabling Zero Waste initiative.

4th January 2016

We are particularly interested in hearing from projects in Wales which will involve the movement of excavated soil and would be keen to explore the possibilities for the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and/or the CL:AIRE code of practice. The team are looking to appoint projects in  February 2016, applications are invited via Sell2Wales

The Enabling Zero Waste initiative provides practical, positive and active assistance to construction, demolition and civil engineering projects in Wales. The aim is to establish if, and how, the construction industry can achieve the zero waste targets established in the Welsh Government’s waste strategy, Towards Zero Waste.  CEW is working in collaboration with the construction industry to provide a detailed insight into the achievability of zero waste. The goal is to share best practice solutions and opportunities, along with identifying any barriers associated with achieving the Welsh Government’s targets.

The application process is now open, applications should be made via Sell2Wales.  Projects should be based in Wales and ideally be in the final stages of design and aiming for project completion by the end of 2017.
