Demolition & Construction Waste Management Plans

Why?

Demolition and Construction Waste Management Plans as generally required by councils address the collection and disposal of waste generated during the demolition and construction of multi-unit residential, retail, restaurant, commercial, mixed use, industrial, shopping centre or any larger sites.

Considering your waste management strategy prior to demolition or construction can:

  • Save money
  • Help ensure best practice recycling and waste minimisation outcomes
  • Satisfy council planning process requirements.

A good Waste Management Plan / process will also improve the recycling behaviour of all parties involved by making recycling easy. This is simple environmentalism.

Inclusions

A Low Impact Development (LID) Consulting Demolition and Construction Waste Management Plan includes:

  • An understanding of the construction type and materials included in the building(s) to be demolished and/or constructed;
  • A discussion with the parties involved if engaged to understand current proposed waste minimisation and recycling practices
  • Process improvements to help reduce waste
  • An assessment of local waste processing sites and contacts
  • An assessment of the space available for waste storage, the collection zone, and the strategy for collecting the waste;
  • An assessment of waste volume allowances for the relevant building use(s);
  • We recommend the most space efficient practical solution;
  • We identify other management issues to be addressed such as traffic management, litter management etc
  • We prepare a 1-6 page written document to meet Council requirements.

Experience

  • Demolition and Construction of Woolworths store – Crows Nest
  • Demolition & Excavation – 10 story office building – Sussex St Sydney
  • Demolition of residence McIntyre St – Gordon
  • Demolition of Red Cliffs Power station – Mildura

At LID Consulting we have 15 years experience including in demolition and multi-unit and commercial design and construction project management so our solutions will be tailored and practical.

I engaged LID Consulting to prepare a Waste Management Plan for a proposed Rural Fire Station. Not only was the price competitive but the efficiency and promptness shown was great.
