How we are sustainable

Construction Sustainability 

Constructing buildings and infrastructure in a sustainable manner is crucial in achieving the environmental, social, and economic objectives of the United Kingdom, while also guaranteeing the durability of such structures over the long term.

The importance of sustainability

The issue of sustainability has become increasingly important in the construction industry due to its significant impact on the environment and the economy. Sustainable building demands a comprehensive approach that considers the environmental, social, and economic impacts of construction. By integrating sustainable practices and technologies, the industry can help create a more sustainable future.

The following are some key points we keep in mind when considering sustainability in construction:

Sustainable design: Architects and engineers are now focusing on sustainable design, which is fundamental to creating sustainable buildings. They are incorporating sustainable features such as passive solar design, green roofs, and renewable energy systems into their designs.

Energy efficiency::Improving the energy efficiency of buildings can significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Building regulations in the UK now demand strict energy efficiency standards for new buildings, and existing buildings are encouraged to upgrade their energy performance through incentives like the Green Homes Grant.

Waste reduction: As construction generates a lot of waste, reducing waste is a critical component of sustainability. Construction companies can reduce waste by using recycled materials, reducing packaging, and implementing better waste management practices.

Sustainable materials: The use of sustainable materials can reduce the environmental impact of construction. Sustainable materials are those that can be recycled, are biodegradable, or made from renewable resources.

What our clients say

Antony Kingston

House Rebuild

I have worked with numerous contractors over the last 20 or so years, and would definitely recommend the team at WRS. They’re a family run firm that cares about their jobs. Their positive and helpful approach throughout the build made the process run smoothly, and meant that issues, questions or variations were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They were a pleasure to work with

I have been complimented on numerous occasions about the build and how it blends in with the original house. This is a direct reflection on the work of Wright and Ruffell
