SURVEY: Reducing waste in UAE construction

10 February 2020
Industry survey on waste reduction and improving lifecycle costs for projects in the UAE

Over the past three years, the MEED Mashreq Construction Partnership has examined construction industry pain points such as contract disputes, late payments, adversarial client-contractor relations, and technology adoption.

The partnership is now looking at waste in the UAE construction industry and at the opportunities and challenges for waste reduction and managing lifecycle costs. 

As part of the report, MEED is conducting a survey to gather industry insight on construction waste reduction. The information will form the basis of our next construction report and will help drive suggestions to further improve the process of lifecycle management.

The survey is anonymous and all responses will be treated in the strictest confidence. 

This survey will serve as a starting point for conversations around waste-reduction as a way to minimise project costs across the region.

If you have any additional feedback/comments or wish to contribute to the report, please get in touch by emailing
