Panthera Group is delighted to share the news that it has been presented an Innovation award by Morgan Sindall’s Northern Home Counties business for EnviroHoard™. Panthera was pleased when Morgan Sindall specified EnviroHoard™ on not one but four of its projects – David Rowsell, Area Director of Morgan Sindall says:
“We have now selected Panthera as our partner across four recent projects. The most recent being the new iconic University of Hertfordshire SPECs building. The EnviroHoard™ product and carbon net zero accreditation completely align with our industry leading Carbon Zero focus and ambitions”.
Morgan Sindall have committed to achieve an ambitious target of net zero carbon emissions by 2030. Already, Morgan Sindall has achieved a 73% reduction in carbon emissions since 2010 and its carbon intensity, the amount of carbon emitted per £m revenue, has been cut by 82% over the same period. Panthera Group’s sustainability policy closely aligns to that of Morgan Sindall; in 2021 Morgan Sindall reported a 37% reduction in carbon emissions from vehicle fleet – this year Panthera intends to explore sustainable transport solutions such as electric and hybrid vehicles.
Rowsell goes on to explain:
“We were delighted to present Panthera with the 2021 Innovation award from the Morgan Sindall Northern Home Counties business. It is richly deserved and reflects the significant progress they are leading on in this essential area”.
EnviroHoard™, the UK’s first Net Zero verified sustainable hoarding has a number of unique features to drive down the system’s embodied carbon; it is approximately 70% lower embodied carbon than plywood hoarding and even more on projects of longer duration. The system has undergone an extensive cradle to grave Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in accordance with the European wide standard EN 15804:2019.
Additionally, the patented EnviroHoard™ system boasts a low carbon block (EnviroBlok), steel support framework and 100% post-industrial and post-consumer waste uPVC that can be 2.4m, 3.0m or 3.6m in height, depending on the clients’ requirements. The highly flexible system is suitable for hoarding projects of all sizes and has been designed to meet the UK’s three wind zones for temporary works compliance.
The unexpected award, Panthera’s first of 2022, follows the company’s very successful award season in 2021 where it was crowned Winner of the Construction News Specialists Awards, Silver in the National Building & Construction awards, Gold in the SME awards and runner up in the Kier Green Dragon awards!
