The construction industry is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions in the UK and we must all focus on reduction. One area which every delivery team can directly control, is the way they generate power and operate their sites.
Our team, on a 3-year project to strengthen a 400m motorway viaduct, were determined to think differently and be more sustainable from the outset. Supported by Connect Plus M25, they have trialled and implemented a range of new green technology which combined with greater awareness and careful planning, have reduced emissions by over 600 tonnes annually and saved cost.
“From Solar panels on the offices to how they process the sewerage on site, Osborne has brought new and interesting alternatives to more traditional ways of working on site…” Colin Smith – Connect Plus Services
