It works the way the industry works, with a tool the typical
jobbing builder has in his pocket – a mobile phone! You
can add unwanted goods to the site with a text message
and add a picture if your phone has a camera in it.

Local communities and the third sector can also benefit
from this reuse of surplus materials. By utilising free or
low cost materials, projects can begin earlier and be
completed quicker. Many construction companies have
been seen to donate materials free of charge to these
organisations.
As more organisations within the construction industry
become ‘greener’, there will be increased pressure to
prove what they are doing. One example is the CRC
Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly known as the Carbon
s26s18s19s21s17
Reduction Commitment), which is the UK's mandatory s41s40s31s0s41s46s43s0s43
climate change and energy saving scheme, due to start in
s48
April 2010. It is central to the UK’s strategy for improving
energy efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide (CO
2
)
emissions, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008. It
has been designed to raise awareness in large organisa-
tions, especially at senior level, and encourage changes in
behaviour and infrastructure. It will operate as a 'cap and
s36s44s0s29s32
trade' mechanism, providing a financial incentive to reduce
s21s22
energy use by putting a price on carbon emissions from
energy use. All the money raised through the allowances
will be recycled back to participants, according to how
well they perform. The scheme features an annual
performance league table that ranks participants on
energy efficiency performance. Together with the financial
and reputational considerations, the scheme encourages
organisations to develop energy management strategies
that promote a better understanding of energy consumption.

In conjunction with Salford University and the Centre for
Construction Innovation, BuilderScrap® are currently
developing a ‘Carbon Calculator’, which will effectively
measure the reduction in carbon production through the
reuse of construction materials. This can be used by
individual contractors, or by the client across single or
multiple projects. The Carbon Calculator is due to be
launched in Spring 2010.
