Control Measures
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.
