Socially responsible and environmentally sustainable – that’s how Walters strives to describe itself, and it’s through close community engagement that we aim to achieve these ambitions.
We believe our core responsibilities are to the communities we serve, be they the corporate communities inhabited by our customers and staff, or the local areas in which we work. These cultural aspects of our business can be summed up in, for example, our dedication to safe working practises – ensuring the wellbeing of our staff, other contractors and the public – and in our considerate working practises with regard to site neighbours.
We realise that contracting works have the potential to be noisy, polluting and inconvenient. For these reasons we consider local concerns in all our projects, keeping site neighbours well informed at all times and ensuring our works are as clean and discreet as is possible.
We have long been operating Site Waste Management Plans (in advance of the SWMP Regulations 2008) and we minimise the creation of waste through effective planning, precise design and quality management while ensuring projects are registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme. We also recycle materials by balancing quantities between our numerous working sites.
