Laverstock & Ford PC - Sycamore Drive Presentation

As a result of that success, we get our winning paper published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation. The award judges commented: “As always with eibe, the project was rooted in sustainability and fun - aims which were met and exceeded according to both the council and park visitors.” Our second Green Apple Award entry will be focused on how our remarkable robinia indoor play area at Pensthorpe Nature Reserve has enhanced Norfolk’s Wensum Valley’s environmental status. We were also thrilled to announce that eibe Play won Eagle Radio’s 2016 Biz Awards - Green Award Category. This annual event celebrates business success in Surrey and Hampshire and has an array of areas in which you can nominate yourselves that include “Start-up”, “Digital Innovation and “Entrepreneur”. The “Green” category was an obvious choice for eibe following our phenomenal success at the Green Apple awards at the Houses of Parliament in November. The subsequent Green World Ambassador status bestowed on us really underpins our commitment to sustainability and enhances our reputation in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility. eibe recognised for environmental best practice in 2015 eibe Play was honoured as Green World at a special ceremony in the Houses of Parliament in November 2015. The recognition came as a result of the environmental success of the company’s diverse Sport England-Primary Spaces Project which won a Green Apple Environment Award. The award judges commented: “Aiming to transform over 600 Schools’ play provisions, eibe Play and their usual team of installers and sub-contractors, were chosen as the right team to head the project. Most Primary Schools have very little play area and the Primary Spaces fund has culminated in over quarter of a million pounds worth of revenue to provide bright new playgrounds, resurfacing, netting, wall mounts and floor markings, to utilise every inch of space available. Eventually, £150million worth of sporting equipment and facilities will be available to many, developing a sporting habit for life.” Paul Redden, Managing Director, is proud of eibe’s environmental roots: “The Green World Ambassador status is one we embrace and utilise fully. From sustainable manufacturing to partnering with like-minded businesses, we will continue to invest in our Corporate Social Responsibilities in the years ahead.”

Sustainability, environmental and social, both pre and post installation? Prior to and during the installation phase, we will ensure the minimum disruption to the public in terms of noise, dust, traffic, storage and timings of deliveries etc. The spoil resulting from foundation excavations is important to any site as it allows the site to be contoured with mounds, bunds or other features adding three dimensional interest. Any arisings that cannot be reused will be disposed of in registered and licenced sites. The installation phase of the project will be undertaken by one of our teams based locally which will benefit the employment, minimise the transport costs and resultant emissions. In addition, this is not to say that ‘Local People’ will not benefit from eibe Play Ltd delivering this contract. Examples of this mainly include local economic benefits such as: • eibe installation team members staying at local hotels if required • eibe utilising local hire companies for plant/welfare/and security • eibe utilising local suppliers for materials such as topsoil, turf etc. • make use of local facilities such as café’s and other services which will bring local economic benefit. The sites will be considerably improved in looks and accessibility to all users. They will, of course make use of the local facilities and this will be the long term benefit to the local area. The park will increasingly become a destination area where the community can meet and socialise in a comfortable and safe environment and promoting social wellbeing from the onset and into the future. We have proposed equipment and materials to ensure that you will own a play area which is robust, reliable and requiring minimal maintenance. We have not included any “temperamental” equipment. The resulting maintenance cost to the Council has been considered as part of the design and we confirm that as a result of the robust nature of the equipment and longevity of the materials, the ongoing, lifetime maintenance costs will be minimal. Due to its modular nature, eibe equipment may be easily repaired by replacing only the required section rather than a major section of the equipment. Industry standard security fixings are used and any we will supply any specialist tools which are required. Maintenance may be undertaken with no specialist training. The materials we propose to use will be RAL certified and from sustainable sources. Our accreditation and certifications relating to sustainability are available on request
