Wrap calls for green Olympics


THE THAMES Gateway and Olympic developments must be a beacon for efficient construction if the industry is to reduce its environmental impact.

Green industry body Wrap called on the projects in east London and the Thames corridor to be a global showcase for best practice in the efficient use of MATERIALSs in construction.

Dr Mike Watson, head of construction at Wrap, claimed that the two developments offered a chance for the construction industry to prove its commitment to sustainability.

He said: 'The scale of the Thames Gateway development presents a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate that, as an industry, real progress is being made in a key area of sustainability.'
