1 Implementing Material Resource Efficiency practices and Logistics Malcolm Waddell Construction Project Manager MRE Guide Material Logistics Plans Reverse Logistics

2 MRE Guide for Regeneration and Major Project Support

3 Regeneration Linking the demolition and new-build stages to maximise resource efficiency. WRAP regeneration guide Brings together: ICE Demolition Protocol Using reclaimed materials Good practice site waste management Increasing recycled content

4 Current Projects England Moss Side, Manchester Loam Pit Vale, Lewisham Scotland Bishopsbriggs, Glasgow Raploch, Stirling Clyde Gateway Dumfries and Galloway

5 Ongoing Work Major Project Support –Work is being contracted. –Further five projects –Varied size and sector across England and Wales –Client and Contractor Campaign Support

6 Material Logistics Plans

7 A tool to manage all materials from project conception through to demobilisation and completion. Key aspects: Setting objectives and KPIs for efficient material use Minimisation of materials through attention to specifications, delivery & storage, handling & use, disposal Identifying lessons learnt and best practice.

8 Participating developments & projects Leith Docks, Western and Granton Harbour on Edinburgh Waterfront Caltongate Central Edinburgh

9 Participating developments & projects Carmel College St Helens Tubney Barn Near Oxford Kennet Island Reading

10 Participating projects Farringdon Station Central London Crossrail Maidenhead - London - Essex - Kent

11 Participating projects Central St Giles Central London The Dartford Hub Dartford Holborough Near Maidstone

12 A cross section Any type of project Housing - commercial - retail - public - schools - transport - infrastructure Any size of project £ 16 billion - £600k Any location City centre - urban - rural

13 How can material logistics help? Efficient construction Reduced transport and associated CO2 Reduced productivity loss Improved health & safety Reduced damaged by: Weather Bad storage conditions Unnecessary movements Poor handling

14 Strategies Just-in-time On site logistics specialists Construction consolidation centres Off-site manufacture 4 th party logistics On-site marketplaces IT solutions

15 Just-In-Time - Benefits Little or no need for on site storage Reduced risk of damage Reduced congestion on site Reduced risk to health and safety Improved site logistics Improved productivity

16 Logistics specialists - benefits Improved productivity Construction operatives: only handle materials when installing can focus on the construction job dont waste time searching for and collecting materials The logistics specialists are experienced in handling Always use appropriate tools Reduced damage and waste

17 Traditional transport to site Site Many separate deliveries Un-coordinated arrivals Risk of congestion on site and at gates Many half empty lorries or … Consignments too large High stock levels on site Empty return journeys High traffic flow - high CO2

18 Construction Consolidation Centres CCC Site Concrete, steelwork, very large items, and full vehicle loads when required, go directly to site Contractors deliver to CCC Mixed loads from CCC Daily deliveries - JIT Logistics operator runs the CCC Transport to site On site handling Waste removed on return journeys Bulked up, compacted etc at the CCC

19 Barts and the London - CCC effect? CO2 and traffic reduction obvious Waste volumes and productivity: Still being monitored Review in May 2009 after approximately 1 year in fit-out stage

20 Off site manufacturing OSM Controlled manufacturing environment Standardisation Consistent quality Shorter time on site Design freeze Packaging Transport and Travel Reduced cost and risk

21 WRAP case studies Specific case studies examples developed by WRAP looking at: Volumetric methods – CAD CAM software helps reduce waste <0.6% Pre-fabrication: Pods – post production waste <1% Pre-cast concrete – Bison have reduced waste to landfill <1% using their system Timber frame - <2% waste sent to landfill Light Steel Frame – materials requirements down 5% and wastage reduced from 12% to <1%

22 4th Party Logistics A 4PL is a company that acts for a client and: plans optimizes runs the logistics network; e.g. hauliers and warehouse operations Normally not with own assets Web based technology Expertise

23 Demand smoothing Analyse project activities over time -including the supply chain activities Balancing and smoothing the activity levels Cuts the peaks in demand for resources - transport, equipment, labour Demand smoothing at planning stage Demand smoothing in the weekly and daily operative level

24 Practical use of software Multi user diary for booking All movements on and off site Crane time, forklift time or any resource usage Contractors do their own bookings Reporting tool for providing e.g. Daily activity schedules Trade contractor performance Real-time control system for recording current site activity with information available to all, in different forms and in any location

25 On site and virtual market places Common storage area Shared by all Consumables, small tools Administratively efficient Good availability Resource efficiency through sharing


27 Implementation of MLP Pilot project using WRAP template Internal review Adapt and make part of co procedures Programme for co-wide rollout Monitor performance, SWMP data Build own database of KPIs Continuous review of KPI and procedures Engage with contractors Phase 1Phase 2Phase 3 Engage with contractors

28 Reverse Logistics WAS620 Efficient use of vehicles visiting site – promoting better waste management

29 Materials arrive on site in delivery vehicles, are dropped off, and the vehicle leaves empty Waste vehicles arrive on site empty and leave full with waste The reverse logistics concept A logistics operation that seeks to avoid the empty journeys, and promote the take-back of un-used and wasted materials could have a range of environmental benefits

30 The concept Take-back schemes are becoming more common offerings to UK construction sites There is a real opportunity here to: Promote the take-back of unused / waste product and packaging by delivery vehicles Reduce vehicle movements and mileages associated with material supply and waste management Reduce the environmental impact of construction

31 The Reverse Logistics Model Excel based model compares current against potential The model reports the results in terms of: The proportions of waste, recyclate and back-hauled material The costs of material purchase, waste management and back-hauling The number of miles travelled for delivery and waste travelled The associated carbon footprint
