Winvic, a privately owned, multidisciplinary main contractor with experience delivering construction projects on a national scale, has achieved certification to Planet Mark.
Winvic serves a growing list of bluechip clients and is widely known as the UK’s leading ‘shed’ specialist, delivering millions of square feet every year for the industrial and distribution sector. The company is dedicated to sustainability, with the majority of its developments achieving ‘Excellent’ and ‘Outstanding’ BREEAM ratings. Its design managers have considerable experience of sustainable developments and Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) assessments are undertaken so that energy consumption can be analysed and designs fine-tuned for optimum efficiencies. Measures are also taken to reduce waste and use of raw materials and aim for earthworks levels that reduce the need for the transport of materials on and off-site.
“In the decade of climate action we need more committed contractors like Winvic. Their continued successes in sustainability serve as an exemplar for others in the construction industry. From the construction site through to the finished project, Winvic’s dedication to sustainability and awareness of its global impact shows exactly how a modern contractor should act. I’m delighted to have them as part of the Planet Mark community.”
The construction industry is a focus point of the world’s battle to reduce its carbon emissions. 97% of the United Kingdom’s existing building stock needs to be adapted to meet global climate change targets, so bold action and leadership are necessary to make sweeping changes to the industry’s existing practices. Measuring and reducing the carbon footprint of the entire lifecycle of our building stock is vital to creating a low-carbon future.
To recertify next year Winvic must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
