Constructing Excellence

To support the Governments Net Carbon Zero aim, we have set a target to be net zero in our own operations by 2030 and have developed our Net Zero Roadmap on how we can achieve this.

Contributing to a more sustainable future is at heart of all our projects. Fundamental to this is our sustainability2026 Journey compass, focused around the themes of;

  • Performance- Have clear and SMART governance in place to measure and challenge business performance to support our growth ambitions and a sustainable future.
  • People- People are our priority and we keep this simple: everyone matters to us. We strive to keep our people and wider stakeholders cared for, healthy and engaged, consistently demonstrating our vision of being a great place to work so we can be a great company to deal with.
  • Places- Being a force for good within our communities, providing a meaningful and humble contribution to the local economy and its businesses. Leaving a positive legacy wherever we go.
  • Planet- We respect the environment that supports our business and the communities we serve. We demonstrate this by working towards a low carbon economy, being efficient with resources, protecting nature and encouraging our wider stakeholders to do the same.

We havealso implemented various sustainability initiatives across the business and project specifically:

  • Environmental Near Misses reporting KPI’s
  • Site Waste Management plans on all our schemes.
  • Maximising local supply chain spend and reducing vehicle movements
  • Sustainable design solutions offered on all projects where possible utilising our in-house sustainability/EPD library allowing us to spec more sustainable options to our clients
  • Maximising Pre-Manufactured Value (PMV) across all schemes
  • EV infrastructure at owned office buildings
