The integration of environmental considerations into the planning of the construction phase of a project and development of management systems to ensure effective control will ensure that potential delays or interruptions resulting from the need to rectify effects are minimised.
At both tender and pre-contract stage of each project we consider the potential effects the work might have on the environment and we develop suitable methodology and control measures to eliminate those risks. Control measures will be considered for noise, vibration, dust, hazardous materials (storage, use and disposal), water pollution, litter, traffic and adequacy of welfare facilities with regard to personnel safety and the environment. All administrative activities on site and at the head office minimise the waste produced by recycling all possible materials, reducing resource consumption and sourcing resources from sustainable suppliers.
We actively seek to maintain low carbon emissions by using modern low emission vehicles and vessels and by reducing company mileage by vehicle sharing, continuous working, and sustainable shift patterns.
