As the work gets underway, we are analysing and evaluating how activities may affect the surrounding areas. Installing gates and fencing can contain traffic to only those areas where it is absolutely necessary. This lessens the impact heavy equipment can have on the area.
In addition, remembering to shut down machinery during breaks conserves energy and reduces the amount of harmful emissions pumped into the air.
We also established the proper protocols for containing, removing and disposing of waste on our construction sites. This is especially important for hazardous building materials and for sites occupied during construction work.
We understand that the way our materials are sourced also has the potential to make a major impact on the sustainability of a job site. Being careful to buy from local suppliers means less fuel is consumed during transport, which also reduces air pollution.
If at all possible, we seek out materials that feature recycled content or renewable resources and always advise our clients on greener, more sustainable options and possibilities. This certainly means improvements in the ecological footprint of the project.
