The ICE Demolition Protocol requires the project team to be able to demonstrate compliance with targets set for the recovery of demolition materials, along with the procurement of recovered materials in the new build. Users are guided to the walkthrough example 'Evidence of Material Recovery (67 kb)' which provides detailed information on this. The information below summarises the key points of the walkthrough example.
Requirement to Establish Recovery Targets (Demolition)
To ensure the robust delivery of sustainable demolition and construction practices, there is the need to demonstrate how performance has fared against targets set. This may be driven through Corporate Social Responsibility policies, tender & contract clauses, and/or planning conditions/agreements. The process for doing so is a straightforward one, as described below.
Demolition Contractors will be asked to provide tender submissions with indications of the expected recovery performance. This will then be further negotiated once the pre-demolition audits are complete. The Wembley redevelopment case study provides an example of an appropriate recovery target for concrete and masonry of 80%.
Information on target setting & evidence of compliance in Demolition is provided within the Protocol documents. Evidence of compliance can be provided through different means, depending on the nature of the project:
