Designing out Waste case study: Calderdale Leisure Centre

This case study describes how the design team used WRAP's Designing out Waste process to identify and prioritise waste saving opportunities on a local authority project in Yorkshire.

The best opportunities to reduce materials use and waste in construction occur at the design stage. The waste saving opportunities identified include:

  • Use of good practice wastage rates
  • Use of pre-insulated ducting.
  • Reduced packaging on bricks.
  • Use of precast stairs.
