Description du projet : 
Large amounts of water is needed within the construction process, but the client company questions whether this should be expensive drinking water or whether a 'lower' quality will suffice. The Dutch construction firm has been founded more than a 100 years ago, specializing itself in the construction of high quality housing projects, commercial real estate and industrial buildings. Due to its impact on the region by means of their projects, the firm wants to focus on making the construction process more sustainable. One of the aspects that the firm would like to increase sustainability in, is the use of drinking water in various aspects of the construction process. Extensive amounts of water are needed during the construction process, which is usually expensive and valuable high quality drinking water. The question can be raised whether this should be valuable drinking water or whether a 'lower' quality water will suffice for these construction processes. Examples in which drinking water is used currently are masonry mortar, cement, rinsing equipment and cement trucks, sprinkling newly built facades, etc. In addition, the availability of water is not always self-evident, and this increasingly seems to depend on extremes (or shortage or surplus) as a result of climate change: - Moments of sufficient water supply seem promising for the challenge; - At the moment there is little insight into drinking water consumption in our construction processes and the possibilities of converting this to other forms of water supply.   

Partenaires recherchés : 
Parties involved in a comparable challenge, whether or not in other sectors or (work) environments (for example, management of company sites); - Water supplier(s); - Parties from infrastructure and road construction; - Parties from the process industry; - Parties with practical applications and/or the development of these applications. We also want to get in touch with parties that are already involved in water management by nature in order to explore the possibilities of a more integrated approach to this issue.
