Quality & Environmental
We are committed to a process of continuously assessing the environmental impact of what we do and looking for ways to improve our environmental performance. We have in place management systems and procedures accredited by BSI to ISO 14001 to deliver this.
Our Group Chairman David Coleman was an original stakeholder in the Waste Resource Action Programme (WRAP) and for a time advised the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on issues which led to the introduction of Site Waste Management Plans in England and Wales. We are considered leaders in the recovery and re-use of demolition arisings’, as a consequence of our approach to segregating materials at source and our investment in mobile crushing and screening operations to produce high quality recycled aggregates.
We continuously look for innovative approaches that help us manage our carbon footprint and at the same time, reduce the amount of materials we send to landfill which are our biggest environmental impacts. The investment we made in our washed aggregates recycling facilities demonstrates that we back good ideas and also evidences what can be achieved with real commitment.
Engaging With Kids In The Community
Not all of our impacts on the environment are considered negative. Our community engagement programmes, led by our Liaison Manager have worked extremely well. For example, we have become especially pro-active in working with local schools to educate students of all ages that demolition and construction sites aren’t play-grounds. Engaging with kids in the communities where we work, has proven to improve our relationship with them, their families and reduced unwanted instances of nuisance on-site.
We also have invested heavily in a professional and highly experienced senior management team that manages our quality system and procedures accredited by BSI to ISO 9001. These ensure we always have suitably qualified and experience people operating within an agreed safe system of work, using plant and equipment that has been tested, inspected and is fit for purpose under the supervision of non working Site Managers and Supervisors.
