Recycled content case study: Sheffield city centre
Redevelopment of Sheffield city centre, including the demolition of Nelson Mandela Building.
As part of its overall approach to sustainability, Yorkshire Forward has set a high-level policy for the efficient use of materials in construction. To ensure this commitment is met by delivery partners, specific requirements are implemented through the procurement process.
The redevelopment of the site of the Nelson Mandela Building in Sheffield city centre illustrates how a requirement for at least 10% reused and recycled content in new construction can delivered through the development brief, invitation to tender and subsequent contractual arrangements with the development partner.
