Partnership approach with Glencar recognised by Considerate Constructors Scheme

Enva would like to congratulate Glencar Construction and their project manager, Matthew Stowe, on achieving an outstanding 42/45 in the final Considerate Constructors Scheme inspection at the company’s Blenheim Park site in Nottingham. 

Enva are currently providing waste and recycling services to 6 Glencar sites and working together have delivered a high-level performance which has seen 95% of the waste generated diverted from Landfill.  Dedicated waste collections have also enabled several streams to be segregated on site including plasterboard, canteen waste, wood, dry mixed recycling (paper, plastic cardboard, tins & cans) and general waste.

In addition to the excellent waste and recycling performance the report highlighted the efforts that had been made by Enva and Glencar to educate employees and help them to understand the recycling services available on site.  The use of clear and obvious signage to help maximise recycling and minimise contamination was also noted. 

It was great to see that the Considerate Constructors report recognised that “There is an exceptional relationship in place with the waste management company.  Recycling on site is also very effective particularly the re-use of excavated materials.” We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Enva’s Account Manager, Kelly Burch, for fostering such a productive partnership approach to sustainability on site.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit, independent organisation dedicated to raising standards in the construction industry. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice has three areas: Respect the Community, Care for the Environment and Value their Workforce.
