This case study describes how the Net Waste Tool was used to demonstrate that 19% and possibly 30% recycled content is achievable at no extra cost at the development of the St. Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospitals in London. Skanska worked with WRAP on St Bartholomew's Hospital in London to assess how it could increase the level of recycled content used in its construction.
Skanska Integrated Projects, the main contractor for the St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, was keen to assess the overall levels of recycled content for the major re-construction of the hospital.
Research suggested the levels of recycled content could be increased from 19% to 30%, with no impact on the overall project cost.
Skanska is now looking to achieve higher levels of recycled content in other construction projects.
This work demonstrates to the wider NHS audience what can be achieved when building or redeveloping a hospital site.
