  • We endeavour to provide an innovative approach to material specification by working with the Design Team and Supply Chain to provide environmentally sustainable products.

Initiation of Carbon Reduction

Our professional team are always keen to make alternative product suggestions by taking into account and assessing in accordance with the following criteria:

1. What is the need being fulfilled by the purchase?

  • What is the function being delivered?
  • How else could this function be delivered?

2. If it is a replacement product?

  • What factors will create a more efficient and sustainable product than that currently in use?
  • What are the implications at the ‘end of life’ of the product?

Sustainable Products

Good Procurement Practice:

  • Knowledge of the Supply base is critical in ensuring that sustainable materials are procured.
  • Supplier qualifications and appraisals are obtained prior to inclusion on approved lists.
  • Local Suppliers given preference assuming environmental considerations are met.
  • Meetings with Suppliers to verify claims.
  • Performance Monitoring.
  • Assessment of past performance in awarding contracts.

Sustainable Services

We recognise the need for Sustainable Services and Renewables and our professional team are fully conversant with modern approaches such as:

  • Ground Source Heat Pumps.
  • Air Source Heating/ Cooling.
  • Photovoltaic Systems.
  • Wind Turbines.
  • Rainwater Harvesting.
  • Biomass Heating.

Evaluation of Sustainable Services

At design stage our team can assist in evaluating the potential inclusion of renewable energy technology taking into account the following:

  • Orientation and siting for ‘passive’ solutions.
  • Capital/ lifetime cost of technology or product.
  • Impact on running costs for the project.
  • Availability of resources to run equipment.
  • Size and nature of products.
  • Health and Safety risks to site.
  • Impact on the surrounding area.
  • Flexibility for incorporating future technologies.

Transport Policy

We are situated within 10 miles of the site.

  • All of our employees are from the Mansfield / Sutton-In-Ashfield area.
