Russells Construction take their Corporate Responsibility Role very seriously as they believe it is important for all companies to connect with their local community. Russells Construction believes that Corporate Social Responsibility isn’t simply about money; it’s about sharing skills and expertise, spreading the site safety and environmental awareness messages, and playing its part when it comes to supporting local charities.
The firm offers design, installation and project management of structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical services and has expanded over the years in order to diversify its offering to customers. One such example is Russell Homes, the company’s residential development division.
Russell Homes is an award-winning independent house builder developing bespoke residential schemes across the North West. The division have built an extensive and varied portfolio throughout the Greater Manchester area and have broadened their geographic reach into North Wales, Yorkshire and beyond.
Formed in 2004 the property developer has a series of small, select developments across Cheshire and Lancashire, including The Miltons in Cheadle, Village Green in Wigan, The Fells in Tyldesley, Pembroke House, Wilmslow, Waters Edge Mews in Middlewich and Lockside Mill in Todmorden. The residential property arm of the firm aims to provide buyers with the best experience possible, as well as giving them a beautiful home at the end of the scheme.
Building properties in a sustainable manner is at the forefront of Russell’s agenda as sustainability is now extremely popular with clients demanding that their projects are completed to a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’ or above. The firm provides options and solutions for clients in line with the ever-evolving requirements and legislation. The environmental impact of a building is tracked from initial concept through to completion and on into everyday use. Lessening the environmental impact of a building can involve replacing raw, natural materials with recycled content, reducing energy use and pollution during construction and ensuring waste is minimised and recycled.
Russells Construction have pledged to take account of the following factors as part of the process; the amount of waste generated in construction; the amount of water used by the completed structure; the procurement of materials from sustainable sources; and the amount of CO2 emitted by the building once complete.
