Sustainable Construction & Innovation through Procurement
The SCI-Network connects public authorities looking to procure innovative and sustainable solutions within their construction projects.
The Network has produced two publications which aim to assist public authorities in their construction procurement:
A Guide on Procuring Innovative and Sustainable Construction Solutions has been produced by the project and is now available for download. The Guide contains a series of recommendations for good practice developed by a series of working groups within the network. You can download the Guide in English (pdf) by clicking on the image to the right.
(Please note that the Firefox pdf viewer is not displaying the guide correctly. We are working on fixing this issue. In the meantime if possible use another viewer or download the guide to your computer.)
A collection of best practice "Snapshots" has also been produced to accompany the Guide, which provides concrete examples from across Europe to illustrate the recommendations given in the Guide. You can download this collection of snapshots (pdf) by clicking on the image to the left.
A wide variety of other publications have been produced by the working group, from best practice reports to case studies - these can be found in the SCI-Network Resource Centre.
The SCI-Network project finished in December 2012; however, the Discussion Forum, a dedicated space for working group exchanges is still active.
