Eurovia UK | Eurovia sign deal for sustainable hoardings after successful trial
Eurovia Contracting has agreed a sustainability framework with temporary fencing and barrier provider, Blok ‘N’ Mesh to roll out the use of sustainable safety hoardings across its sites, following a successful trial at the Vauxhall Bridge project in central London.
Currently, hoardings are made of either metal – usually galvanised steel – or timber which are not recyclable or environmentally friendly, but in the trial, barriers made of recycled plastic were used and also enabled a clean image on the construction project. As well as being made of recycled materials these barriers are also suitable for recycling if damaged during use.
Following the successful trial, Blok ‘N’ Mesh has agreed a framework to supply Eurovia with this environmentally friendly hoarding across the businesses. The sustainability framework will be rolled out to contractors as part of Eurovia’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint by 40% by 2030 and carbon neutrality before 2050.
Mitesh Solanki – London Contracting Director – Eurovia Contracting said: “We are constantly challenging the way we do things so that we can create a greener future. The success of the trial at our Vauxhall Bridge project is a great example of this. It is important we incorporate more sustainable options on all of our sites, as we are committed to meeting our target to be carbon neutral by 2050.”
Neil Jackson, Sales Director – Blok ‘N’ Mesh commented: “Blok N Mesh are delighted that Eurovia has chosen our sustainable site hoardings. We are pleased to partner in providing construction solutions which help the environment and encourage recycling of plastic waste.”
