An example of an infrastructure project:

Hybrid, Low Carbon, Resource Efficiency

Resource efficient construction prioritises:

  • Reducing materials consumption and wastage
  • Increasing re-use and recycled content (including enabling re-use and recyclability at end of life)
  • Using products / resources with lower embodied carbon and embodied water and no scarcity or source security issues
  • Reducing energy and water use during construction
  • Enabling energy efficiency and water efficiency in use.

Resource efficiency can be achieved by using resources at their highest potential throughout the lifecycle – in product manufacture, design, construction, operation, refurbishment, and at end of life.

This innovative idea also sits within the following key project themes:

  • Advanced Construction
  • Energy & ICT
  • Environment
