Natural Resources

Use only sustainable materials in our projects

We believe in playing a proactive role when it comes to safeguarding precious natural resources and reducing the environmental impact caused by the sourcing of materals to be used in construction, including:

  • Seeking to use recycled, re–used and reclaimed materials, especially bulky materials such as aggregates.
  • Promoting the specification of the most sustainable options to clients as well as providing expert guidance on suitable alternatives when needed.
  • Reporting reductions in use of primary materials to clients for their own learning and communications.
  • Integrating guidelines into our procurement systems for the specification and purchase of key materials such as timber, aggregates and hazardous materials.
