Speedy has teamed-up with specialist Renault-Nissan Consulting to offer the Lean Site service which advises on how to improve site working practices, access and logistics, materials usage and storage.
The Lean Site initiative is an extension of a successful programme used to save money in the car industry.
Speedy claim that contractors could see a return on investment of tenfold or more.
The firm said: “If the assessment does not identify at least double the investment in agreed, self-realisable first year savings, the customer will pay nothing.”
Lee Woodward, Managing Director – Training and Advisory Services, said: “Each year, construction and demolition waste contributes up to 40% of the solid waste produced in the UK.
“In addition, wasted manpower contributes a significant amount to job costs.
“Lean Site helps to remove unnecessary materials and manpower waste by losing the ‘fat’ from how things are done, thereby reducing environmental impact and the cost of delivering the job.
“Huge numbers of UK construction sites could be run far more efficiently and we’re confident that the cost savings that Lean Site identifies will always outweigh the investment, which is why contractors will only pay a fee if savings uncovered exceed the fee.
“The appeal is clear as improving environmental performance – increasingly seen as a key differentiator for customers in a competitive market place – and cost savings from waste reduction go hand-in-hand, meaning that businesses can lessen environmental impact, and improve their bottom line at the same time.”
