OUR COMPANY VALUES

Our company values include:

1. Sourcing materials, where possible reused, recycled or renewable, and within a 25 mile radius of site.

2. Raising awareness that a building is not necessarily sustainable if the manufacture and transport of sustainable materials and renewable energies create a huge carbon footprint.

3. Creating a low energy use building using renewable sources where possible.

4. Using a local workforce and offering college work placements to allow students to learn about environmental issues from a real project.

5. Ensuring access for all as a priority to encourage disabled members.
