We identify how we can minimise waste and maximise the energy performance of the building at the design stage. Simple Building Energy Model (SBEM) to reduce the amount of waste and also reduce the running costs of all building projects.
On our building sites and within our manufacturing environment, specific areas are laid out and labeled to facilitate the separation of materials for potential recycling, salvage, reuse and return within our manufacturing facilities and at all our building sites. Recycling and waste bins are kept clean and are clearly marked in order to avoid contamination of materials.
