Learn how tightly controlled construction consolidation logistics centres can cut construction waste, reduce costs and improve productivity at a free Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) seminar supported by New Civil Engineer.
Consolidation centres are single point areas from which controlled deliveries of materials can be made to site for virtually the precise moment they are required in the construction process.
The seminar, being held in London on 6 October, will unveil the results of a year long DTI Partners in Innovation study into the value of these centres in terms of savings for the industry and reduced pollution and traffic congestion.
Supporters include BAA, Mace, Transport for London and Wilson James.
Other topics to be covered by the seminar include BAA logistics manager Doug Black on what has been learned from the Terminal 5 consolidation centre (NCE T5 supplement, February) and strategic forum chairman Peter Rogers on why construction needs better logistics. There is also a visit from Johan Brisvall who runs the Stockholm logistics centre, which co-ordinates deliveries for all the city council's construction projects.
