All our projects are registered under “Considerate Constructors Scheme“. From the beginning of each job, we make a point of building relationships with all of our project neighbours, keeping them fully updated with all activities on site. All work is constantly monitored to ensure that noise levels are kept as low as possible, and waste is disposed of carefully and considerately.
Dependent on the size and time period of individual projects for construction, we will endeavour to produce a project newsletter which will be posted onsite and to the local community.
We welcome involvement from the community at large, and encourage neighbours, schools and any other interested parties to make an appointment for a site visit where we will show them how we work, and what is happening on site.

As the profile of environmental issues are increasingly being raised it is Pinington commitment to ensure that all impacts through there activities are to either be eliminated, re-used, reduced or recycled.
Environmental responsibility within Pinington lies with every employee within the company. Particular emphasis is given to the prevention of pollution, fuel consumption and waste management. To assist in reducing our impact Pinington have a local supply chain of sub-contractors and material suppliers. Pinington constantly review construction techniques to reduce noise and dust into the atmosphere and use of recyclable produces.
Our waste all enters our local waste transfer plant where we have a recycle waste rate of between 87 and 90 percent.
