Using a Construction Consolidation Centre to reduce waste and carbon emissions

This guidance document has been developed by The Logistics Business and WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme) to give construction clients and contractors an overview of when they should consider a Construction Consolidation Centre (CCC), and an indication of some of the costs and benefits associated with this. It is intended to review how the operation of a CCC impacts on a supply chain and the typical barriers to setting one up.The purpose of this report is therefore to raise awareness of opportunities and benefits through the use of a CCC to improve resource efficiency in construction. Previous WRAP studies have looked at resource efficient operations benefiting from effective logistics strategies. These are often combined with the use of a CCC and include delivery to site and the collection of waste from site.Included in this document are:
  • A summary of a Construction Consolidation Centre
  • An overview of some current examples
  • The tangible benefits of using a Construction Consolidation Centre
  • The parts of the supply chain that benefit
  • Details on where a Construction Consolidation Centre could be conveniently located currently
  • Considerations of setting up a Construction Consolidation Centre
