We want our work to be remembered for its beauty, functionality, quality of materials and craftsmanship, as well as minimize our impact in the environment. Gurhan Construction aims to incorporate “green” design concepts, construction processes and recycling initiatives that respect our pristine natural environment and help create a sustainable future. Our commitment to the environment is reflected in our recycling program. We recycle as much waste produced on site as possible, including timber, cardboard, concrete, packaging, plastics and steel. Gurhan Construction aims to incorporate a number of environmentally friendly practices in our designs including: • Grey water recycling • Storm water retention • Solar heating and cooling • Site orientation to maximise heating and lighting
We are passionate about and committed to improving our knowledge and skills in sustainable building practices. Our team members have completed, and continue to attend, courses addressing recycling and other environmental issues. Gurhan Construction is on its way to becoming a Green Living Contractor. To help achieve our environmental targets, we have adopted the 3R's principle: REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE. Whilst recycling is the element which receives the most exposure, it is actually the last option available in the battle to reduce waste. It is our duty as individuals and as a company to initially attempt to Reduce usage. Then we should look to 'Reuse' wherever possible and finally, only after these two processes have been exhausted, should we consider Recycling.
