Reuse and Recycling on the London 2012 Olympic Park
About the report
This report written by BioRegional, for the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), sets out practical advice and recommendations on how to develop and implement a reclamation and reuse strategy for the Construction and Development (C&D) sector.
The report is based on the experience of the Olympic Park demolition where the ODA set demanding sustainability targets. Including a commitment to reuse or recycle 90% (by weight) of demolition materials.
The focus of this report is reuse of C&D materials. It describes the processes used throughout demolition highlighting project management, contracting, communication, documentation, demolition processes, product storage and design.
The successes, lessons and recommendations will be of interest to local and national government departments responsible for large scale events and regeneration projects. This report should further be of interest to senior executives and project managers in the construction and demolition industries and the case studies and key lessons may be beneficial to demolition contractors looking to expand income streams.
