In this restoration, now in project basic, Societat Orgànica carried out an environmental assessment to the architect team with the objective of optimise building’s energy demand. Once the construction phase has started, it carries out an assessment in management and recovery of waste that will be generated throughout this phase.
This work is considered as an assessment to the specialist management and, at the same time, to the construction company through periodic work meetings in which the objectives to be met ans the actions to be developed are set out. From here, the construction company develops ans executes an internal waste management plan in compliance with its environmental quality standard ISO 14000, while the specialist management carries out detailed control and monitoring. Societat Orgànica, in addition to carrying out some site visits, reviews the reports that both are generating and proposes new improvements actions.
Different actions of selective separation and valuation are proposed, among which the reuse of the land, the aggregates of the roof and some carpentry and insulation, the recycling of wood, plastic film and metal residues, as well as the adequate internal management of special waste (including the remains of fibre cement). The final recycling values were low since the stony waste (95% of the weight of the waste generated), despite having been selectively separated from the rest of the waste, for economic reasons was destined to a landfill (the extra cost was not foreseen in the budget).
