Environmental considerations are central to all our activities, informing the approach we take to selection of materials, resource efficiency, waste management, emissions, nuisance and transport.
Our ISO 9001 and 14001 certified management systems are complemented by a built-in flexibility which ensures our strategy is continually adapting and improving as we work with project teams to develop new, more sustainable working methods.
It is an approach which allows initiatives generated and implemented at project level to be developed and integrated into our company systems quickly and effectively.
On all projects our aim is to use resources as efficiently as possible, reducing waste at source through design and responsible procurement. This involves working with our supply chain to identify and select low-waste materials and processes and minimise packaging.
We also aim to select materials which have low embodied energy, are responsibly sourced and can be easily reused or recycled to reduce future wastage.
Through rigorous monitoring and reporting we are able to measure our performance, identify areas where we can do better and work with project teams to ensure our continuous improvement.
It’s not just on site that we are working to minimise the impact of our operations. Our approach to the environment affects every aspect of our business, with all our permanent offices and plant yards now using low carbon electricity.
