Raw materials

The raw materials and resources most commonly used in the course of the works carried out by the Budimex Group include: modified and ordinary road asphalt, cement, concrete, steel, hydraulic binders, lime meal, aggregates: asphalt (including sand and gravel), construction aggregates (sand, gravel), road aggregates (sand, gravel and others), hydrotechnical stone and railway ballast. Of these materials, slag, rock cuttings, cement, crushed aggregate for bituminous mass, crushed aggregate mixes, concrete, steel, wood are potentially recyclable. Efficient (environmentally and economically) management of the demand for materials and raw materials and their recycling is made possible by the VE (value engineering) monitoring system.

Waste generated during construction is mainly from demolition and renovation work, and the total amount depends on the number of contracts and their stage of advancement. Waste management on construction sites is regulated in the “Waste Management Plan” included in the Health and Safety Plan.

If hazardous waste is to be generated during the works, the contractor is obliged to include this issue in the “Manual for the Safe Execution of Works”, and to respond to emergency situations and environmental incidents. Proper management of waste on construction sites, including the monitoring of possible residues of hazardous substances, is carried out on an ongoing basis by laboratories located on the project site.

Different types of waste are generated at each stage of construction. Brick and concrete rubble is generated at the initial stage of demolition of facilities at the site where the new development will be built, and old asphalt, track ballast – after the removal of the road and tracks. The most frequently generated waste is soil and rubble, stones and waste from renovation and dismantling of buildings and road infrastructure. Many of them can be reused at subsequent stages of the works. Removed soil is a valuable raw material for use in finishing works. The removed soil is a valuable raw material for use in finishing works. Shrubs and branches from logging, which is often unavoidable, can be used as biomass fuel or garden material after being ground into small pieces (chipping).

Waste generated at construction sites is increasingly being put to economic use (e.g. crushed concrete from demolition, which can be used as aggregate, asphalt pulp removed – asphalt rubble). In construction and demolition work. In the course of construction and demolition work, the following materials can be separated: metal, wood, glass, rubble, soil and earth or ballast.
