This course is intended as an integrated waste management course to address all stages of a building project, from site selection, through design, construction and end use. It will be relevant for architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, and any other participants working in the built environment. Waste prevention in the context of design considerations and construction phase waste management is mainly covered in the morning session, and post-construction waste management is covered in the afternoon session.
The morning session will cover the fundamentals of construction waste management, using case studies and tools that participants will be able to take away from the session. We will also look at the requirements for waste management when using certification tools. It includes cutting edge case studies from leading Irish contractors on recently completed projects.
During the afternoon session, we will focus on the management of waste for buildings in use. This will encompass resources available in Ireland and Europe and will include practical sessions on initiatives that can be driven by both building managers and users. Includes case studies from leading facility managers.
Presenters: Elisabeth Nagel holds a BSc and HDip in Environmental Engineering and has over 18 years experience in the environmental and pollution control sector. As part of her experience, she was involved with the EPA Greenbusiness programme, delivering resource efficiency workshops for facility managers. Kara Flannery has over 18 years multi –disciplinary experience as an environmental consultant. Kara has extensive experience in waste legislation and policy reviews. She project managed and later directed an EPA funded Greenbusiness Resource Efficiency project. Kara project directed the EPAs National Waste Report between 2007 and 2011, and currently carries out strategic environmental and waste implementation reviews for private clients.
Flannery Nagel Environmental (FNE) bases training programmes on practical experience and knowledge gained from working on challenging programmes for the EPA and the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, among other projects. Over the past five years these have included the 2007 review of Irish Waste Permitting Legislation, a feasibility studies for a National Difficult Waste facility, and the review of Environmental Liability Assessment methodologies.
Why Learn about Waste and Resource Efficiency?
EU and National legislation, ambitious targets set by clients, and the increasing costs of landfill require that all involved in the construction industry – from design and construction to facilities management – understand strategies that eliminate waste at all stages of the building life cycle. The use of Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) are now required for larger projects. Learn how these can be used to achieve ambitious targets up to and including 100% diversion of waste from landfill. Learn how waste can be eliminated at the building management and refurbishment stage and how the construction and design phase can impact on this.
