Objectively, we aim to keep neighbouring residents and businesses fully informed of works which will affect their homes or businesses and impact their day to day lives. We ensure that noise, dust and vibrations on our building sites are kept to a minimum, in order to prevent disruption to our neighbours. Additionally, we endeavour to feasibly utilise local labour to assist the community with finding employment.
We develop low carbon options whenever practicable for our customers and encourage them to choose non-toxic, sustainable design, materials and construction methods. We also promote measures to recycle and minimise waste, and endeavour to use longer-lasting and better-functioning products will have to be replaced less frequently, thereby, reducing the impacts of producing the replacements and future installation cost.
