Biodiversity Campaign

Last year at Geda Construction we began our Biodiversity Campaign across all sites.

Unfortunately, as we all know, construction processes can sometimes hinder biodiversity temporarily during works, so this campaign was started with the overall aim to help offset that hindrance.

The campaign has the aim to:

  • Reduce impacts of construction processes on the surrounding flora & fauna
  • Enhance biodiversity of the finished site/local area
  • Promote and raise awareness of local biodiversity & issues
  • Work with local groups/schools to get children interacting with the environment
  • Promote the construction industry and demonstrate its commitment to the environment/ local community

At one of our sites in Pye Avenue, Mansfield, we put this scheme in place by providing Red Gates School (a small local special needs school) with a variety of eco-friendly habitat huts.

These took the form of bird boxes, insect houses, a hedgehog home and a bee house, some of which will be installed in the school’s sensory garden and the children will be able to monitor these closely.

This has provided the school with some environmental resources that they otherwise would not have been able to put in place, and the delight in the children’s faces was clear to see.

Geda have carried out a variety of initiatives under this scheme at schools in Leicester, Nottingham and at home, including; bird box painting, supply of planting beds, grow your own plants or trees.
