Tudawe Brothers Sustainability Agenda
Tudawe Brothers aims to elevate lifestyles by building homes, offices, bridges and water supply systems, thus providing the infrastructure to make it easier for people to live, travel and work.
In order to accomplish this goal, we have introduced a 6-pillar sustainability agenda which covers the constituents of economic, social and environmental sustainability as follows.
Best-practice construction, procurement and supply chain integration.
Procurement specifications to exactly match requirements and pre-testing of samples undertaken.
Procurement from reputed, standardised suppliers
Natural products (e.g. sand, metal and blocks) bought only from environmentally friendly and ethical sources.
Timber, steel and aluminium waste brought down to near zero by bulk ordering of cut lengths
Precautions taken to prevent illegal discharge of waste into ground water
Filtering and chlorination at RMC Plant
Solid waste separated and disposed into dumping yards
Timber off-cuts reused as firewood by workers
Close monitoring of manufacturing processes
Evaluation of past performance with TBL in the selection of suppliers
Close follow up with suppliers from the point of project award onwards to ensure that supply chain remains continuous and timely deliveries are carried out
Ordering strictly as per material schedule after preparing project requirement
Line drawings and schematics used in the design to minimise waste and optimise energy and resource consumption.
Shop drawings are all subject to Consultant's approval
Practices perfected since 1980
Hiring equipment for long distance transport in order to reduce equipment wastage maintenance.
Efficient transport planning, mapping fuel consumption and strategic scheduling of maintenance/replacement to ensure no interruptions in the transport chain.
Focus on reducing noise, dust and waste water.
Low noise generators used and any noisy operations disallowed beyond 6.00 p.m. in order to ensure minimum noise pollution.
Dust screens used to prevent air pollution.
Sites covered up by investing in netted enclosures and fences to improve the appearance of the environment and hide ongoing construction.
Hiring of skilled and unskilled staff from the local community (20% - 30%)
Materials procured from local agents of our approved suppliers even at higher prices, to involve and benefit the local community.
Recruitment of staff from the locality and retention through our subcontractors.
