We take sustainability extremely seriously in an industry that we believe doesn't always do enough to address the issue. We recognise that our daily operations and project-related activities could inevitably impact on the environment and we are committed to minimising these effects.
The structure steel frames, roofs, sub-floors, stud walls, glazing and doors are all re-used on every project and are the key components of our Structures. Power cables, distribution units, sockets, air-conditioning units and lighting fixtures and fittings are also stored and re-used for projects.
All wood based products are recycled. This even includes laminated chipboards and painted panels. Good quality timber will be turned into furniture or re-sold at a low cost. "C grade" timber will be sent to be chipped and re-purposed. We endeavour to reuse our wood products to achieve the longest possible lifespan from them.
Used designer finishes will always be re-purposed. They might end up in a client’s front room, on one of our Carpenter’s bathroom floor or on a friend’s custom motorhome project!
LED lighting systems are key in our designs and our stock is 100% made up of this type of fixture allowing us to be very energy efficient in all of our project delivery.
All of our plans, quotes and marketing materials are 100% digital. We leave no paper trail with our workflow and on-site the team work from digital plans on tablets or laptops leaving less waste in our planning and project delivery.
Any non-recyclable materials will be kept to a minimum, the ones that are used will be sent for EFW. This means "Energy From Waste". Waste is burned at over 850 degrees C to create steam, this is used to make electricity by turning a steam turbine.
Our project delivery crews almost always travel together reducing emissions for site specific travel and our Project Managers make sure this is as efficient as possible reducing our Carbon Footprint.
We are very passionate about sustainability and committed to engaging and helping our clients think more sustainably when it comes to projects. This doesn’t need to be complicated or costly and we are happy to undertake the task of producing your project with alternative materials and solutions whilst maintaining the same high-end creative finish.
