Resource use roadmap for construction sector

The enormous flows of materials and energy through the construction sector and its supply chain have been mapped out in the latest project in the Biffaward research programme.

The study reveals that some 275 million tonnes of new building stock accumulates each year, but leaves it to others to suggest how this resource demand might eventually be curtailed - for example by improving building's longevity.
