Sustainability in the Construction Industry

Pursuing Eco-friendly Concrete Practices

We all have a role to play in keeping our planet safe for future generations, and sustainability is a big part of that.

As contractors, we believe we have a duty to minimise the impact our work has on the environment. We strive to use the most sustainable materials and methods available to us as we work towards meeting the BREEAM sustainability targets.

Here’s what we’re doing to move towards a greener way of working.

What Are the BREEAM Standards?

BREEAM is a third-party certified set of standards for sustainable building design, construction, and operation.

The standards are designed to address environmental and sustainability issues within the construction industry. They go beyond looking at carbon emissions alone, assessing all levels of environmental, social, and economic sustainability performance. Factors they assess include:

  • Pollution
  • Energy and water use
  • Transport
  • Materials
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Waste
  • Management

We are currently taking steps towards becoming BREEAM certified. We are using more sustainable concrete materials (such as the PrīmX technology mentioned below) and always responsibly dispose of waste, recycling whenever possible.

How Does Our Partnership With PrīmX Help Us Meet Our Targets?

Nationwide Concreting is the only UK licensee of PrīmX, Primekss’ CO2-saving jointless concrete technology. Along with being exceptionally durable and quick to install, PrīmX is far more sustainable than traditional concrete.

PrīmX features an optimised mix design and reduced slab cross-section, meaning it consumes less cement and steel. Using PrīmX allows us to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 70%.

Even better, PrīmX is jointless. This means no joint sawing, and no hazardous silica dust released into the air.

Find out how choosing PrīmX floors for your next project will cut down on your CO2 emissions with PrīmX’s CO2 calculator.
