Richard Hardy, HSEQ Manager
The Mildren Construction environmental management system is externally audited and is compliant with the ISO 14001 standard. We maintain an environmental performance the company is proud of. For our projects, we develop a site specific environmental management plan, ensuring project specific requirements are identified and successfully managed. The HSEQ and site teams work closely with clients, subcontractors, operatives and suppliers to deliver this high level of environmental performance across all of our construction activities and waste management.
Mildren recognise the social and commercial benefits associated with progressive environmental sustainability management. We use circular economy principles i.e. reuse rather than buying new, whenever we can. We do this not only because this is better for the environment but also because it is beneficial commercially. In this way, we encourage sustainable construction. This ethos helps us to promote and encourage a similar outlook across our supply chain. We use BREEAM and Site Sustainability to support our efforts but once the ethos is embedded, it’s consequences can be found throughout the company.
This is best measured by our levels of repeat business. We are on numerous frameworks that we have been partied to for over 15 years. Over 75% of our turnover is with repeat clients and we often find that new clients come to us having received glowing recommendations.
Mildren is committed to being a Considerate Constructor, taking due regard for our neighbours, employees, stakeholders and interested parties who may come into contact with our projects.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is an initiative that aims to improve the image of the construction industry.
The CCS commits those projects registered to enhance their appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and care for the workforce. More details can be found on their web site www.ccscheme.org.uk.
