Enviromental Policy

PMC has in place pre contract information sheets that all departments work with, to secure a position as a supplier or sub contractor certification confirming that either ISO140001or environmental policy is in place. The masonry and aggregate supplier must all endorse the use of QWG which deals with responsible sourcing of materials This information is critical in proving the companies chain of custody at completion and is a useful tool when completing the Code of Sustainable Homes information. Companies and sub contractors are reviewed quarterly at site management meetings, this in some instances has led to the removal of the sub contractors work flow.

In addition to the above information site records are kept of all lorry movements and the mileage involved, where possible PMC Promotes local involvement with local companies and labour that benefits the communities economy. Careful logistical planning is a way of cutting unwanted fuel cost along with unwanted airborne pollution.We has enclosed copies of a live project and the data that is being recorded to ensure the scheme is fully compliant with all company expectations.

Our Environmental policy commitment is;

'To minimise the environmental impact of site activities to prevent pollution'

We source from ISO14001 suppliers, all our sites now monitor utility usage and site vehicle movements, we also have systems in place to minimise waste and pollution from site activities. As part of our commitment to the environmental policy, we have appointed two waste champions who have been trained and certified

Each SWMP identifies key areas to minimise waste. This is tied in with our construction site impact best policy; Typical examples include:

Prevention of ground and surface water pollution. We adopt the suggestions set out in the Environmental agency pollution prevention guidelines (PPG 1,5 &6). Each site has a 15ft.

container dedicated to storing waste liquids, which is positioned in a suitable location. We operate a best practice policy in respect of air and dust pollution arising from site activities.

To prevent air pollution, dustsheets are used with damping down in dry weather. Skips are covered with sheets over night when not in use. We monitor water meter readings each month as part of Key Performance Indicators. Water consumption target levels are set and displayed on site. Consumption is monitored over the project duration and actual amount used is compared against target. This is tabulated on a graph and displayed on site. Each site introduction has a section stating how to lower water usage such as no taps are to be left running etc.

All policy information is disseminated to all our site staff via toolbox talks, initial site inductions and company policy literature, which is available on site.
