Our interface with the environment as a civil engineering company cannot be underestimated. The construction process is a considerable producer of CO2 and consumes vast amounts of energy. It also creates waste in terms of materials to landfill etc. There are risks during the construction phase of habitat destruction and pollution. All of these aspects have to be managed.
Ward & Burke operates an Environmental Management System (EMS) that is certified to the international standard ISO 14001:2015. We constantly strive to reduce, reuse, recycle where possible. We work with our clients to identify areas where this can be achieved whilst maintaining the quality deliverables as stipulated in the contract.
