news from BRE
Alandale to audit waste on all projects
Alandale Logistics are set to become the first logistics company serving the construction industry to implement a waste monitoring and management system across the whole company.Alandale will operate the waste management tool SMARTStart (developed by BRE) on all of its projects from early this year. SMARTStart monitors waste leaving the construction site and feeds the information into a database on the web, which automatically generates graphs showing the performance of individual sites on a company-wide basis.
Paul MacLennan, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager for Alandale Logistics, says, "We are looking forward to the challenge of managing SMARTStart on all of our projects, and to demonstrating the benefits of this form of waste management to our clients".
"Effective waste monitoring and management can only benefit the construction industry as a whole," says MacLennan, "and we believe that more and more main contractors in the industry are going to require the use of tools such as SMARTStart in order to improve waste management".
Since it started trading in 1996, Alandale Logistics has been involved with a number of high profile contracts including the Royal Opera House, the British Museum, Glaxo SmithKlines new Headquarters in Brentford, the Tate Galleries (both north and south bank), Albion Riverside - Battersea, and Tower Place. Alandale first worked with BRE on waste monitoring and management on the Chiswick Park Development.
Perry Morgan, Managing Director of Alandale Logistics says, "We are committed to developing and promoting high environmental standards, with the aim of progressively reducing the impact of our clients operations on the environment".
