The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD) have launched a brand new report which outlines the sustainable waste management practices carried out at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ stadium building websites.
Titled ‘Waste Management Best Practices for Construction Sites: Case Studies from FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Stadiums’, the report goals to tell native contractors – and the broader building trade – about environment friendly waste management methods.
The practices described within the report define Qatar’s dedication to environmental sustainability and its plans to host the primary carbon-impartial FIFA World Cup™. They additionally spotlight Qatar’s ambition to realize sustainability certification beneath the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS), which goals to enhance a venture’s environmental efficiency and promotes the reuse of waste at building websites, recycling wherever potential and accountable disposal at authorised landfill amenities.
Engineer Bodour Al Meer, the SC’s Sustainability Director, mentioned: “Minimising waste and growing recycling is a key strategic goal of the Qatar 2022 Sustainability Strategy and we’re happy with our achievements on this space.
“This report on waste management serves to document some of our best practices and share what we have learned so that other construction sites can be operated in similar ways and ideally achieve even higher rates of recycling.”
The Founding Chairman of GORD, Dr. Yousef Alhorr, mentioned: “All World Cup projects in Qatar have adopted unconventional measures to manage site waste and limit their carbon footprint during the construction phase. Guided by the GSAS framework, we have documented these best construction waste management practices. Through this report, we hope to benefit and support the entire construction community in its quest towards developing a sustainably built environment.”
Al Horr continued: “Embracing green practices on site presents a range of opportunities beyond the obvious benefit of preserving our ecosystem. Reusing and recycling construction materials, for instance, not only diverts waste from landfill but also cuts down the cost of new materials required for future use.”
The report follows the ideas of the round financial system by outlining finest practices linked with decreasing, reusing and recycling. Starting with waste segregation, the doc guides professionals via a hierarchy of assorted steps and points of the waste management cycle with subject proof collected from their implementation on stadium websites.
Qatar 2022 stadiums have carried out world-class waste management practices by making certain correct waste segregation, sorting and storing; via amenities out there on web site, and by outsourcing authorised licensed waste subcontractors to deal with and switch several types of recyclable wastes from building websites to their right locations.
The stadium websites collectively diverted 79% of stable waste from landfill via reuse and recycling practices. Ninety per cent of the waste generated at Al Janoub Stadium and 84% generated at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium was both reused or recycled. For the continuing Ras Abu Aboud Stadium venture, the share of waste diverted up to now is round 95%. The diverted waste from the 4 different stadiums ranges between 72% and 80%.
The report estimates the quantity of waste generated at every web site, with the info helping in planning the required setup for waste management and discount. Some of those calculations embody the generated waste per gross ground space, each day generated meals waste per employee and proportion of various waste streams.
The report additionally outlines the assorted challenges of waste management in relation to main building tasks, together with the requirement to allocate ample area, labour and equipment to the venture. In addition, the report outlines the significance of consciousness programmes and implementing waste documentation monitoring methods.
This is the most recent report printed by the SC and GORD. The two organisations beforehand teamed as much as produce the Dust Management Best Practices for Construction Sites report, which additionally centered on Qatar 2022 stadiums.
