The news is a first for the UK construction industry after EnviroHoard went through extensive European wide Life Cycle Assessment standard tests.
A Life Cycle Assessment considers the consumption of energy and materials, plus the release of emissions throughout the supply chain.
This is taken all the way back to their extraction from the earth, transportation, material production and through their product lifetime, ending with the waste management activities.
Neal James, Managing Director of Panthera Group said: “This marks months of hard work by our team, it demonstrates our ambition of eliminating the use of timber, and particularly plywood, for the use in construction site hoarding by 2025.
“For the first time, Main Contractors can now choose a Net Zero Carbon, closed loop hoarding system over timber and painted plywood hoarding.
“They will improve their BREEAM, CEEQUAL and Considerate Constructor scoring, but more importantly they will be helping to stop 20 to 30-year-old trees being cut down to be used in the construction of short-term site hoarding.”
The system has just been chosen by RiverLinx CJV, a joint venture of Ferrovial Agroman, BAM Nuttal Ltd and SK Engineering Construction Ltd, as their preferred hoarding system to secure its Silvertown Tunnel project.
