Green Agenda: Sustainability & Environment

Concern for the environment and promoting a broader sustainability agenda are integral to our core values.
We are committed to creating and maintaining good sustainable practises which reduce environmental impact to our activities and of each project.

Company Environmental Initiatives

Sustainability

Recycling & Waste

No waste sent to landfill.
97% of our manufacturing waste is recycled, and 3% which cannot be recycled is turned into electric energy and fed back into the grid. 

EV

Electric Vehicles

We are committed to having all our fleet on hybrid or full electric by 2025.

In our factory, we are replacing our fleet of gas powered pallet handlers with electric vehicles. 

Car Share

Car Sharing

Car sharing is encouraged where possible to save on unnecessary journeys. 

Cycle To Work

Cycle to Work Scheme

We're pleased to offer many benefits to our employees including a cycle to work scheme. 

Solar Panels

Solar Panels

We are committed to installing solar panels on our factory and warehouses over the next 5 years.

Floodlights

Low Energy Lighting

Low energy LED units have replaced all internal fluorescent factory light units and the floodlights in the yard. These are linked to ambient daylight sensors so the lights are only on when required.

Sustainability of Steel Structures 

Sustainability

Recycled Content

Sigmat structures are built using steel with 42% recycled content.

Reduced Carbon

Reduced Carbon Emissions

Substantial reduction in the overall carbon footprint of a building.

Remember manufacture of concrete generates 9% of the world's carbon emissions - almost 3 times as much as the entire aviation industry. 

Lightweight

Lightweight

Light gauge framed steel structures are substantially lighter than  traditional steel framed buildings allowing significant reduction in the construction of foundations.

End Of Life Recycle

End of Life Recyclability

It is well known that steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials with a potential recovery and re-use factor in excess of 90%.

Zero Waste

Construction Site Waste

Site waste is virtually eliminated using pre-engineered and fabricated product so contributes to zero waste targets on site.

Transport

Reduced Transport

As the volume of material on our delivery is greater there are less vehicle deliveries to the project, which assist in reducing the impact on the environment.

Speed

Speed of Construction

Speed of construction increased by over 30% and less operatives enable social distancing which reduces site impacts - improves site safety due to less operatives.
