We consider what environmental controls are needed and plan accordingly from day one - the receipt of your tender enquiry documents.
Our tidy values drive our environmental solutions in the form of our waste management plans, our on-site waste segregation, and the identification of recycling opportunities.
Surface water discharge points that are monitored and tested, controlled processes for abstraction discharge licences, and silty water controls are all examples of control measures we plan in advance on our civils projects.
Proper consideration and planning prevent pollution of the ground and water courses.
As a large user of primary construction materials, we are very selective in our sourcing, we only do business with environmentally focussed suppliers. Concrete will be considered as precast so it can be manufactured offsite, recycled aggregates will be used provided it conforms with specifications, all our steel is CARES approved and timber is compliant with FSC rules.
Our ISO 14001 Environmental Management Quality Standard enforces our stringent processes to ensure we look after the environment for all our stakeholders and the local community.
Earlier engagement with the main contractor and design team has assisted the project stakeholders to achieving a product that is not only of high quality, built on time, incorporated service voids and penetrations, along with budget constraints. The Blanchard Wells team have developed an open communication process, which develops transparency and collaborative working. Blanchard Wells bring the added benefit of group strengths, groundwork and concrete frames, to deliver a programme that would have been hampered if packages had been split.
Blanchard Wells have been a great find for McCarthy & Stone. Recently completing the groundwork and concrete frame at our Southsea development and presently undertaking the construction of the groundwork and concrete frame at our flag ship site in Virginia Water. Blanchard Wells have been very proactive providing a high quality product well within the programme timescales in a safe and professional manner.
