The Sustainable Option
According to the UK designing buildings Wiki:
• 45% of total UK carbon emissions (27% domestic buildings and 18% non-domestic) come from built construction.
• 72% of household emissions arise from space heating and the provision of hot water.
• 32% of landfill waste comes from the construction and demolition of buildings.
• 13% of products delivered to construction sites are sent directly to landfills without being used.
Sustainable construction aims to use renewable and recyclable materials when building new structures and reducing energy consumption and waste. The primary goal of a sustainable building is to reduce the industry’s impact on the environment.
Modern Methods of Construction provide the opportunity to be more sustainable as homes are precision-engineered and manufactured in a factory-controlled environment, hence less waste. In addition, houses are built using sustainable materials.
SBUK GROUP modern method of construction is about better products and processes which aim to increase efficiency, quality, resident satisfaction, environmental performance and sustainability.
Sustainable Materials used
All timber products used within our business are sourced from sustainable sources. Either PEFC or FSC certified.
Enabling a high-quality fast-paced program without compromising quality and safety as well as reducing material waste
Exceptional thermal performance can be achieved for the lifetime of the build due to the fabric first approach.
Due to the thermal efficiency anecdotal evidence from previous customers have shown reductions in their energy bills by as much as 70%, and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
Modern methods of construction are utilised to factory produce your SIPS home or building meaning minimal wastage and less waste to landfill.
Transporting the finished building to the site also uses minimal vehicles hence reduced carbon emissions.
