LINKEDME – Innovations in Construction Material Reuse by Nazir Associates

Calling all our construction stakeholders who want to minimise waste and increase the reuse of construction materials.

Did you know 168 million tonnes of construction materials are wasted every year?

SWM members Nazir Associates are working with 4 other UK partners, the ‘LINK Consortium’, on a circular economy construction materials app.

The aim is to speed up the process of bringing the used materials to market spaces and reduce the cost of reuse materials by applying the latest technologies such as BigData, Artificial Intelligence and Object Recognition. The project will use GIS to map local construction sites that have wasted materials to reuse at the end of a project.
