We plan for the reuse and recycling of concrete
Prior to a concrete cutting job we plan for the reuse and recycling of the maximum amount of material we can safely and economically perform. Some items can be reused in the new building or can be salvaged for reuse in others before we start the main scope of the project.
During demolition we separate some materials onsite to be taken to facilities for reuse, recycling or reprocessing. We take other mixed demolition debris to a construction and demolition debris recycling facility where the material is separated and diverted to many beneficial uses.

- Recycled aggregates (RAs) used in the London Olympics Park reduced the carbon footprint of the concrete by 33,069 tons and eliminated over 70,000 road vehicle movements?
