Waste & Resources

Natural ResourcesHybrid Build Solutions specialise in prefabricated timber systems – CLT, CLTherm, glulam, closed panel timber frame, external joinery, and full envelope solutions – which are by their very nature offsite, Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). Given that the construction, demolition & excavation sectors generate around 80 million tonnes of waste per annum, several million of which go directly to landfill, then it is easy to understand why MMCs are increasingly specified. Site waste can be dramatically reduced, and a factory controlled manufacturing environment results in much more efficient use of resources – the component processes within the variant forms of timber MMC are generally low/zero waste given the extremely high levels of reuse / recycling.
