        • Description
        • By looking closely at the way we design, we can make a significant difference to the amount of construction waste arising and going to landfill. Some design solutions - such as re-using and recycling demolished material as aggregate or sourcing plasterboard cut to size - are fairly obvious, but there is also a whole range of opportunities to reduce construction waste through design. Some of these are captured in current WRAP case studies and in the Designing out Waste guide.

          The Competition is to generate more ideas - design solutions - that reduce construction waste. Competitors are encouraged to apply creativity and skills to identify, prioritise and design innovative ways to reduce waste on construction projects, and so demonstrate the practical application of the principles set out in the Designing out Waste guide.

          Competitors are encouraged to use the methodology outlined in the Designing out Waste guide when developing their entry.

          Competitors shall choose from one of three project/site examples and show design solutions that implement innovative, practicable (considering buildability and commercial viability) and replicable measures, which will make a significant impact on waste reduction. As a guide selecting and illustrating a small number of key design solutions per entry (< 10) would be considered appropriate.
