sustainability

We appreciate that our business activities impact directly and indirectly, on the areas of society and the environment in which we operate. Our aim is help our customers create better buildings and leave a positive legacy whilst soundly managing these impacts in a responsible manner. We are determined to act in ways that are good for the environment, good for the community as well as good for our customers.

We focus on the key environmental and social issues and where we can, collaborate with our peers to make a real difference to the built environment. In times of limited resources, we must all do more with less. We continue to work to mitigate the environmental impact of our operations by cutting energy, water and resource use throughout delivery stage while seeking solutions that enhance the efficiency of the buildings we create.

By supporting local employment and business opportunities we enrich the lives of those we work alongside, while benefiting ourselves from much-needed talent. These interventions are also vital in attracting a more diverse workforce and we recognise, in particular, the importance of early engagement in challenging unhelpful perceptions of our industry. To this end, we work closely with social enterprise partners, local schools and colleges to promote the variety of exciting careers the industry can offer them.

Our commitment to Eliminating Waste, Reducing Climate Change and Transforming Communities enable us to balance corporate, ethical and environmental principles with sound business practice for sustainable commercial success.
We take our business responsibility seriously and endeavour to encourage and develop good business practices based upon our core values of performance and integrity.
