Sustainability

As a major construction business, we are committed to minimising our impact on the natural environment and local communities, as well as maintaining sustainable practices in all our disciplines.

Significant progress has already been made in areas such as carbon management, transport policy and strategy, renewable energy and the responsible sourcing of materials.

We are one of the only companies within our sector to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard for reducing CO2 emissions year on year and the first steel fabrication contractor to gain the BREEAM BES 6001 best practice standard for the Responsible Sourcing of Materials. Visit the Accreditations page for more information.

We are also very proud to have successfully gained the Gold Membership Standard of the Steel Construction Sustainability Charter. This is a milestone achievement recognising our sustainability policies, community engagement, energy and environmental policies, and wider corporate social responsibility practices. 

The Steel Construction Sustainability Charter is governed by the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) and the Register of Qualified Steelwork Contractors Scheme for Bridgeworks (RQSC). The charter offers clients a way to identify the UK’s most sustainable companies in the steelwork industry. Sustainability is now an important consideration in procurement as steel is being promoted to clients, specifiers and designers as a more sustainable form of construction than concrete. 

Visit the BSCA website for more information about the Charter and sustainability in the steelwork industry.
