About us

How we deliver sustainability

At Canvey Island, we developed an alternative low carbon construction solution for the project.

Our revised proposal resulted in the following:

✔ Over 40,000m3 of material diverted from landfill.

✔ Reduction of the carbon intensity of the project by 717 tonnes (tCO2).

✔ Stabilisation of existing ground rather than excavate, dispose and replace.

✔ Elimination of 7,000 vehicle movements to/from site.

✔ Significant reduction in concrete usage.
