Preservation of the environment and natural resources is a major concern and renewable energy sources are being increasingly specified. We have gained extensive experience in the use of renewable energy sources and installation of the technologies available to exploit them. These include:
• Solar hot water panels
• Photo-voltaic arrays
• Wind catchers, light-wells and their distribution infrastructure
• Green/brown roofs and rainwater harvesting
• Ground and air source heat pumps and exchangers
• Materials from renewable or managed sources
• CHP - Biomass Boilers
• Energy efficient lighting
• Composting toilets
These are installed by fully qualified subcontractors under the supervision of our management teams. We procure a high proportion of materials from sustainable sources and we actively identify alternative skills and materials suppliers.
We have achieved high-end BREEAM and CSH ratings and continue to improve our own environmental processes. .
Sensitive to our responsibilities throughout the demolition process we produced site waste management plans ahead of the legal requirement to do so. This ensures the correct treatment and disposal of pollutants such as asbestos and other volatile compounds are completed safely. Furthermore, we are reducing water consumption and increasing recycling to restrict the amount of waste deposited on landfill sites.
