We have been careful to create working environments (both site and office based) where the efficient use of resources has been adopted as a standard policy. At Maylarch, sustainability is a value that we apply to all aspects of the work we carry out. For us, being sustainable means looking after every single aspect of the impact of our activities.
“We are recycling the past to build the future. By taking materials from old buildings within communities and reusing or recycling them back in to the community.”
Simon Ward, Director
We look to establish a Sustainable Culture and to build sustainable relationships:
With our Staff
Sustainability has been clearly embedded into our company culture and we look to our staff to embrace this ethos and help move us even further ahead in our aims to continue operating as a responsible and sustainable company.
Maylarch operates an Environmental Committee which is attended at all levels throughout the company. Outcomes are then fed into our EMS (Environmental Management System) and specifically our environmental program.
These efforts made on site and the optimisation of our vehicle fleet has allowed us to dramatically cut down vehicle movements and their impact on the surrounding areas.
With our Clients
At Maylarch, we understand the wider responsibilities and requirements that our customers work under.
Over the last five year period we have consistently diverted over 95% of waste generated from our clients’ projects from landfill, including hazardous waste through careful planning, segregation on site and by using Pre-demolition Audits.
To achieve this, we can:
- produce pre-demolition, refurbishment strip out waste audits.
- offer waste audits and solutions for all waste i.e. hazardous, active and inert and help clients produce and supply some of the information for their SWMPs.
- report on project waste/materials in CO2. We have worked with Oxford Brookes University’s Environmental Information Exchange to produce a project waste carbon calculator. This can help with understanding the overall carbon footprint of a project by reporting on the embedded carbon in the Demolition/Enabling Phase.
- provide full compliance on initiatives such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment, PAS:402, Green Compass and the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change.
We are also keen to talk to designers and manufacturers of building products as well as architects to discuss how we can make buildings easier to recycle with a greater number of components that can be reused.
