Springwell Gardens is located just a 10 minute walk from Leeds train station. With access to the city centre via the canal towpath, just a two minute drive from the M1, M62 and A1.

Carbon Reduction

Working with our Supply Chain

The team at Springwell Gardens have been busy reducing the projects emissions where they can. Taking part in quarterly 10 Tonne Challenges, the site team recently managed to reduce 370 tonnes of carbon by working closely with our supply chain.

The team worked closely with David Ashley Construction to change the projects reinforcement. The project is a traditional concrete frame, with flat slabs containing steel reinforcement, however the team decided to use Hy-Tens Bamtec System due to its various advantages, including its improved carbon footprint.

The bars for Bamtec mats are automatically taken from coils at the correct size, so that no steel waste is generated. Compared to cut and bent reinforcement, this produces material savings of 20% on average. The carbon they saved by making this change is equivalent to heating 137 homes annually in the UK.

Diesel Free Day

The Springwell Gardens team hit a milestone by achieving their first diesel free day. The team have been working hard to reduce their diesel consumption on site as much as possible and using alternative such as HVO fuel which is a more sustainable, high quality alternative to diesel fuel, and is produced from waste fats, vegetables and oils.

Working in the Leeds community

Making a positive difference in the communities we work is a vital part of our responsible business plan. Our Community Investment Group supports our project teams in the delivery of local community engagement projects. Project Manager, Nathan Whiteman and the team recently took the time to visit a local charity in Holbeck to donate a number of selection boxes in time for Christmas. They also delivered food and clothes to the charity ‘Holbeck Together’ and assisted them in their open day activities. Along we out supply chain, we were also able to donate a new microwave as one of the raffle prizes.
