We recognise that our work activities may have an impact on the environment and are therefore committed to the continuous improvement of our environmental performance. Through effective management and adherence to our Environmental Management System we aim to minimise the impact of harmful effects on the environment.
Particular attention is given to:
Environmental awareness and understanding of our business amongst those working for or on behalf of the company, providing training as necessary and encouraging contractors and suppliers to adopt sound environmental practices;
The considerate use of land undergoing development having special regard to archaeology finds and the storage, treatment and disposal of any waste, hazardous or potentially toxic materials to avoid environmental harm;
The use and re-use of materials to minimise and curtail creating waste and, whenever practicable, using materials and products from sustainable sources;
Controlling the emission of pollutants, noise and dust, and the use of potentially harmful substances and treatments during construction activities;
Conserving energy through sensible selection, use and management of resources, equipment, plant and transport;
The continued development, monitoring and investigation of systems, practices and procedures at each stage of construction to ensure the environment remains a foremost consideration.
