PlanetThe team was able to achieve a recycling rate of 83% and achieved additional points through the reuse of waste on-site. This was 10% over the clients’ target. Along with Overbury’s sign up and good report from the Considerate Constructors Scheme, its efficient environmental management of the fit-out added marks to the accreditation targets. RWE npower renewables achieved the first ever Ska Gold rating .
ProfitThe project team not only monitored all energy, water use and waste on-site but actively sought to reduce it where possible. For instance, the existing reception space required altering, so, instead of knocking down the block partition wall and building a new one, Overbury carefully took down the wall and reused the blocks to build the new one – simple but effective in saving cost and materials. Suspended ceilings were also taken down and stored for reuse where not required, rather than discarded.
First Ska Gold rating for a fit out project in the UK
