Construction projects have the potential to be resource intensive and as the rate of development increases, so too will the demand placed on often finite materials.
To ensure that only responsibly sourced materials are used on our Newfoundland residential scheme, Canary Wharf Contractors have developed a Sustainable Procurement Plan which itemises the allowable environmental certification schemes for each material type. Materials such as concrete, metal and timber as well as others including plastics, stone and insulation are all covered by a sliding scale of environmental certification.
These requirements are then checked throughout the procurement process to ensure that our supply chain can achieve these standards.
In partnership with our supply chain partners, Expanded, to date the project has been able to achieve BES 6001 certification for 100% of concrete used through the use of the Hanson concrete batching plants within London. Likewise, reinforcement has been procured from F Brazil who are accredited through the CARES sustainable constructional steel scheme.
The desired outcome of these standards are that Canary Wharf Contractor projects will be delivered with a reduced environmental impact, our suppliers will continue to challenge their own supply chains to deliver efficiencies and that the industry will benefit from increased supply resilience.
