Environmental 14001: 2004
Reducing greenhouse emissions with Sustainable building
IPB takes our environmental accountabilities very seriously. We continually upgrade our ISO Environmental systems with new recycling ideas and waste reduction methods.
Our portable buildings are energy efficient, ecofriendly and we use recyclable materials when available. Use of thermal properties in cladding, insulation, roofing and reflective colours all help with energy efficiency by cooling in summer and keeping warmer in winter.
Our staff and contractors are educated in the policies and procedures for sustainability. We use long life materials that are recyclable and make an effort to source environmentally conscious suppliers where possible.
Locating the buildings in the right north, easterly orientation of the sun, ventilating it accurately and insulating it properly while using energy efficient appliances, cooling shade structures and breezeways will give you overall improved thermal efficiency.
The waste materials from the manufacture of our portable buildings are re used in our building programme. We also recycle all timber decks and roof over materials from one job to another.
IPB provides for commercial and domestic clients. Offering a large range of products and services. We custom design and build a range of portable buildings to suit your requirements whatever size, quality and efficiency you entail.
