Sustainability is one of the global 'mega-trends' affecting us all. At Elliott we recognise that we have a duty of care to help meet the needs of today, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet the needs of tomorrow.
That means reducing our environmental impact. Factory-produced modular buildings generate around half the amount of waste of traditional construction, thanks to fewer processes and tighter design specifications, inventory and quality control. Elliott buildings are fitted with energy-saving features like efficient lighting and heaters, waterless and dual flush toilets and aerated taps for reduced water consumption. An Elliott Eco-Future building has a potential total energy saving of up to 73%, compared to a standard portable building.
Sustainability means investing in our people. We have over 20 apprentices learning at any time, acquiring the skills and knowledge they need to build successful careers. All staff have access to learning, development and support programmes and our agile working policy allows home-based working to minimise travel.
The school is 'a world class collaboration to enable a sustainable built environment', offering training, best practices and resources to construction and facilities management related companies.
The world's largest provider of business sustainability ratings, Ecovadis evaluates how well a company integrates sustainability principles into its management systems.
Specifically recognises the support, development and opportunities open to young people within Elliott.
Economically, Elliott is developing its business model to deliver financial growth, provide employment and re-invest in future operations. A large part of our business is hiring accommodation solutions to customers, which are returned when no longer required. This form of recycling means a typical portable building can be hired approximately 20 times during its lifecycle - a much more efficient and sustainable method than traditional accommodation solutions.
