Health and Safety
Whilst we are proud of our excellent record on health and safety, our ethos is that no matter how good we are there is always an opportunity to improve our performance. Our dedicated team of health and safety advisors regularly visit our sites to monitor compliance, but also to advise, encourage and engage with our project management teams to get their feedback on how we could do better.
Construction projects inevitably have an impact on the environment. We work hard to minimise our own environmental footprint and focus not only on what we deliver, but how we deliver it. Aiming where possible to minimise waste, recycling & procuring materials responsibly.
We are proud of our reputation for consistently delivering a high quality of work. Passion for quality is one of the main reasons so much of our business is through repeat customers. Our target on quality is to get it right first time, every time.
At Gavigan Paving Ltd sustainability is key to the way we do business. Whilst ‘green construction methods’ are an important factor in our sustainability agenda we recognise that the social and economic impact of what we do is as important as the effect we have on the environment. We actively seek to support our clients with their sustainability targets.
We are proud to be accredited with the following standards, this helps our business continue to operate to the highest standards, and maintain our adherence to the latest construction & HSE legislation.
