I have been in the construction industry for over 15 years, first as a carpenter, then as a site manager. It has always played on my conscience that we should be doing more as builders to minimise our impact on the environment. From segregating waste to recycling, there is so much more we can do, and with better planning, we are able to greatly reduce our environmental impact as builders.
Experience you can trust
Sustainability is at our core
All timber is responsibly sourced, FSC-certified and, where possible, locally sourced. This goes for all materials used. I like to shop locally where I can, therefore reducing material travel times and CO2 emissions. I am keen to support other local businesses.
Safety is our priority
Many people are unaware that certain products used within our homes can cause potential dangers. For example, paint types can emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) for many years. At JFSB we use high-quality and safe materials, such as mineral paints, which are much better for us and the environment.
Buildings and the process of constructing them account for over 30% of total global energy use. It is time we started making changes to the way we build.
As an experienced carpenter, I deliver a high-quality, sustainable building service.
