At about this time, each year, I start to think about what we can expect in the coming months. This year I am expecting our business to grow based on the current workload and the projects we have lined up. But with regard to the bigger picture I expect the environment will become an even more important consideration for the construction industry in 2020.
Looking back over the past few years, building regulations have been increasingly reflecting a concern for the environment and placing more responsibility on building design and construction. Architectural innovation in new build is now being driven by the need to maximise energy efficiency and lower carbon emissions. And in the construction industry we are striving to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and find more sustainable methods and materials.
As a company we are committed to continuous improvements in how we manage our operation with regard to sustainability and the prevention of pollution. All Corniche staff are trained in our Environmental Management System, which for example, seeks to reduce waste and recycle materials wherever possible. In 2020 we hope our business will grow but we will make sure that it is not at the expense of the environment.
