‘Commercially green’ – this is a phrase you will hear used quite often within the GKL environment!
We all know that working in a sustainable way that minimises our impact on the environment is of great importance, however, wherever possible, this also needs to deliver commercial benefits – hence the phrase ‘commercially green’.
We like to think that as a business we are extremely open minded to new innovative systems and solutions.
We have championed the production and use of recycled secondary aggregates within road and infrastructure construction. We utilise GPS machine controlled plant and equipment that increases drive efficiency and reduces fuel use. New and innovative methods of building are of fundamental importance to us, as well as the use and implementation of renewable technologies wherever viable.
Our own office is testament to this ethos – as opposed to conventional air conditioning to provide comfort cooling in the summer months we installed an evaporative cooling system that provides cool air at the same cost of powering a single light bulb!
