All employees have a legal duty not only to work in a safe manner, but also to co-operate in efforts made by the Company to create safe working conditions.

The Environment

We recognise our construction activities may have a significant impact on the environment and that practical concern for the environment is an integral and fundamental part of our business and also that of our clients.

We are committed to promoting the continual improvement of our environmental performance and to the prevention of pollution through the design and construction of our projects. We aim to operate our business in an environmentally sustainable manner. We endeavour to achieve this through the development and implementation of an Environmental Management System.

Our Environmental Management System follows the general guidelines of ISO 14001.

The company will aim to ensure that (where practical) materials purchased will have a recycled content and have a minimal negative impact on the environment. We will endeavour to influence our major suppliers to minimise the negative impact of their operations on the environment.

We seek to comply with pertinent environmental legislation and regulations concerning our activities whilst delivering quality projects efficiently and with minimum disruption to the environment. Best available techniques will be employed where construction works can affect the environment. These decisions are based on professional advice and close liaison with relevant authorities and agencies to minimise adverse environmental impact.

This policy will be communicated to all employees and members of our supply chain.
