Environmental and Sustainability

 

Glenman Corporation Ltd is committed to minimising harm to the environment, meeting the statutory obligations in all of its operations, as well as continuous improvement in its Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) performance.

 

In order to achieve this aim Glenman has put in place a comprehensive Environmental, Management System, which is continually audited and performance objectives are set and benchmarked regularly. Glenman UK is currently working towards accreditation to ISO 14001:2004 as an endorsement of the high standards to which it has always aspired.

 

Glenman has extensive experience in ‘Green’ construction methods and has recently completed two primary schools to ‘Passive House’ standards. It is hoped that this will be the next generation low energy school project. Passive Energy for schools involves; a high level of insulation, an airtight envelope  (< 0.9m³/sec/m² @ 50 Pa), a compact build, an efficient heating / mechanical ventilation system and the avoidance of thermal bridging.
