hatandglovesAs a competent contractor our first priority in any construction project is to ensure the operational health and safety of each person working on that project, as well as the environmental health of the general public living in and around our sites.

Grantchester Construction (Eastern) Ltd is proud of the work that we do and are fully committed to safety. Members of The Federation of Master Builders and Constructionline and have CHAS registration which is the Contractor’s Health and safety assessment scheme. We are also looking to gain the ISO9001 Quality Management System in early 2009. Grantchester Construction employs its own Health & Safety and Environmental personnel, working with ‘The Health and Safety People’ to ensure that best practice is always implemented.

The Environment

With an ever increasing demand for environmentally sustainable energy and building materials Grantchester is investing in training personnel and technology to meet the demands of our clients. We currently offer an alternative heat source using solar power panels for domestic water systems

Grantchester have recently completed work on several projects which have required high specification, energy efficient glass and building materials which meat rigorous energy saving standards. Conversely we have also worked on projects which involve conservation areas, listed buildings which need recycled materials to meet planning restrictions.

Continuing our commitment to the environment Grantchester has partnered with a local waste contractor to ensure that waste produced is recycled or disposed of in the correct manner.

Over the next two years we have aspirations to gain the Environmental Standard ISO 14001 which will ensure that Grantchester are one of the most forward thinking environmentally aware construction companies in the East Anglian area.
