WORKING FOR THE
ENVIRONMENT

Whilst the construction industry as a whole doesn’t have a great reputation we constantly assess and improve our environment credentials. In recent years we have taken the following steps.

  • Improve the insulation values of all external joinery manufactured where possible.
  • Use timber from certified and renewable sources.
  • Including plantation grown full FSC hardwood.
    (See icon_file_pdf Red Grandis Brochure)
  • Use wood burner to reduce electricity consumption.
  • Use recycling waste bins for all suitable waste.
  • Use water based paints and timber treatments.
  • Our standard double glazing is Low-E, argon filled to provide very good insulation values.
