A privately owned building company that was established over 35 years ago and has developed into a well-respected, and trusted general building contractor that specialises in providing a range of building services to a variety of public sector and commercial clients located in Greater London and the Home Counties.
Quality is driven throughout the company by senior management through to site operatives. We hold quality assurance and environmental standards ISO9001 and ISO14001, which means that all of our processes are monitored and audited throughout the project lifetime to ensure that works are carried out in accordance with the specification and agreed standards.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The corporate world is forever moving into unknown territories, which requires business to continually adapt. We believe that in order to maintain G&L’s integrity our values have to reflect our belief that social responsibility must be at the core of this change, regardless of what direction the corporate world moves in.
Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is evident throughout all our projects, be it the team on site to the people we aim to support through our actions; we are committed to practicing our ethos in every day life.
Fundamental to this is our ability to critically analyse the impact we have on the local economy, environment and broader society. Our overarching strategy for each project is heavily influenced by these factors, as we aim to reduce our overall impact on each segment when we undertake works. By taking this approach, we hope to raise the standards of not only our own employees but those who work with us and around us.
For example, we always aim to use local labour, be it direct employment, local contractors or suppliers. We aim to make sure that the local supply chain benefits form our on going works. We believe that this will have a ‘domino’ like effect and benefit the local economy, creating future growth and jobs as well driving local SME’s forward. Rather than dredge a local area, we aim to selectively pick our projects and help populate and give back to each community.
By reviewing and setting achievable targets, we aim to considerably reduce our impact on the environment. We have installed state of the art tracking equipment on all of our vehicles to help reduce our carbon footprint by monitoring our fleet of vehicles mileage usage and fuel consumption.
We are consistently trying to minimise our volume of waste to landfills by undertaking detailed reporting, segregation of waste and increasing our level of recycling with our suppliers.
