Sustainability in Construction: A Case Study of Waste Management at One Cotroceni Park Residential

The construction industry is shifting towards sustainability, with a focus on reducing environmental impact and promoting eco-friendly practices. Waste management on construction sites is a crucial aspect of this movement, aiming to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials. The One Cotroceni Park Residential project is a notable case study, where our team made a concerted effort to enhance sustainability through effective waste management.

Case Study: One Cotroceni Park Residential

From December 2022 to September 2023, we achieved noteworthy success in waste management. Of the total construction waste generated, which amounted to 938.293 tons, 98.03% was diverted, equivalent to 919.828 tons.
Type of Material Total Diverted (tons)
Mixt Construction 129.2064
Mixed Metals 56.8044
Timber/Wood 9.7800
Cardboard 4.7567
Plastic 2.869590
Gypsum 633.0902
Rubble 83.3206
TOTAL 919.828
This high diversion rate underscores our dedication to minimizing the environmental impact of construction activities and fostering a responsible and eco-conscious approach.

Facilitating Sustainability Certifications

We recognize the pivotal role of sustainability certifications in contemporary construction practices. We actively support our clients in attaining certifications such as LEED and WELL by integrating green building methods and innovative waste management strategies into our projects. We have already facilitated One United Properties in achieving the LEED Platinum certification for their office building.

Key Strategies for Waste Reduction

Several key strategies contributed to the project's success in waste reduction and environmental responsibility:
The imperative for sustainable construction practices, particularly efficient waste management, is increasingly evident in the contemporary landscape. The success of the One Cotroceni Park Residential project serves as a compelling illustration of how construction sites can significantly reduce their waste impact, contributing to a more sustainable future.
