BigREc launch 4 December, finally!

London UK - THE results of the BigREc Survey, undertaken by Salvo in 2007, will officially be launched on the afternoon of 4th December 2008 in London followed by a drinks reception. AEAT managed the survey with BRE through CRWP (Construction Resources & Waste Platform) and funded by the UK government department Defra.

CRWP's press release states:
The BigREc survey, which was carried out in 2007, shows the state of the reclamation industry in the UK compared to the previous survey of 1998. The survey looked at reclaimed building materials from the very old antique and expensive, to the broad range of stock found in a typical UK salvage yard, through to the more modern and practically free salvage. The survey was carried out by Salvo LLP, and commissioned by CRWP. The findings indicate that there has been downward trend in reclamation for most of the key material groups, with the exception of ceramics (mainly bricks).
