The purpose of this paper is to provide an analysis of the key issues to be addressed in developing a framework for the eco‐costing of construction waste.
Based on an analysis of the literature, original thinking and the use of a case study, the key issues to be included in an eco‐costing framework in the construction industry are discussed.
The relationship between process, policy, technology, impact and cost is discussed. The relationship between environmental cost and construction site activities is introduced. A mathematical model for eco‐costing wastes from construction site activities is also presented.
This paper provides a first attempt to conceptualise eco‐costing issues in relation to waste from building site activities, and also provides practical modelling for implementing an integrated strategy for the eco‐costing of construction waste.
