We developed a customized management tool, and used it alongside 4D modelling techniques, offering early and on-going coordination between disciplines, contractors and second-tier suppliers.
We also developed a unique water footprinting tool suite for the construction sector, implemented for the first time on the Terminal 2B project. A quantifiable system was set up to capture, analyze and understand water impacts associated with materials and construction on a live project. The combined results estimate the impact of water consumption on the environment.
Thanks to these tools, the water consumption ‘hidden’ in the supply chain was found to be 35 times greater than the water used during on-site construction. Showcased as part of a Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) case study, our findings have put us in a strong position to accurately target water reductions on future projects.
