The UK water sector is moving towards a delivery model based on the principles of digital design and delivery management, BIM and off-site construction. This presentation will examine the progress being made on this journey by the water companies and supply chain, and will share examples of completed larger-scale DFMA projects in the UK and beyond, where this approach has yielded genuine tangible benefits and delivery efficiencies.

How Careys cleared this vast 20 hectares site of asbestos contaminated materials and soil contamination, using our in-house soil engineering plant and chemical testing laboratory in advance of delivering demolition works to make the site safe from contamination in preparation for residential development. Our on-site remediation removed dozens of trucks from the roads every day, improving project efficiency, protecting the environment and achieving a 98% recycle rate of recovered materials.
