When it comes to building and construction, the techniques that some firms or contractors use, can have implications for the protection of the environment and ecosystem.
Many builders source materials without due regard towards the costs to the environment. As an example some use non-renewable timber and sourced stones that can cause serious environmental damage. These materials can never be replaced in the natural context and so can cause permanent damage to the environment where they have been sourced.
Not all builders consider the cost of their activities to the environment. This is often due to their ignorance towards the damage they might be causing or because they do not care. They use excess electricity and water sources that can cause genuine environmental damage. Also, wasting energy will also add to the cost of the building project that their customer has to pay for.
There have been many occasions when builders have been accused of not undertaking environmental audits before commencing a particular job. This can lead not only to major environmental and ecological damage. But may also be dangerous to the natural inhabitants of endangered species, plants or insects.
Some businesses use out-of-date equipment that isn’t energy efficient. Or machinery that can pollute the air, soil or water basin by omitting harmful gases. Too many builders have no knowledge whatsoever about energy efficiency in a home. This may manifest by an   excessive use of a customer’s electricity by the use of energy-eating tools or inefficient heating equipment. They fail to tell customers on the most energy and cost-efficient appliances to install such as central heating and boilers. As a consequence, their clients have to live with high energy and water bills, with more costs to the environment.
Bromley and Gaines employees have been trained to use the most efficient and friendly practices. This ensures that, as builders, we are doing everything we can to ensure that the local ecology is preserved as is practicable. There are so many examples of ways that we work towards protecting your environment.

There is an increasing amount of solar panels on our new build properties. We are encouraging households, and businesses, to consider the benefits of solar power when they commission a new property. In addition, we advise on fitting solar panels to existing properties to increase their energy conservation and reduce household energy costs



Bromley & Gaines

At Bromley & Gaines we have built our business firmly on trust.


Bromley & Gaines are proud to be one of the market innovators in the use of ground source heat pumps. These take the natural heat found in the ground as a source of energy that can be used to heat water and other domestic energy dependant appliances. Unlike solar panels that rely on sunlight to reach maximum efficiency; heat pumps are less reliant on the weather

The materials we select to use on all of our build projects are the most environmentally friendly and sustainable as practicable. We choose ‘green’ products as a matter of course, but will be happy to discuss any specific needs you may have that relate to environmental friendly issues

Avoiding pollution to groundwater in our building work is major factor that we take extremely seriously. It is company policy to also ensure that waste is minimized. Whenever possible, discarded materials will be recycled. Another factor that we build into our construction work is to pay particular attention to maintaining the existing landscaping and ecological features of your property.


When we undertake any work in your home, we realise that any pets that you may have live there too. We are most respectful of their routines and comfort by ensuring they are not disturbed unduly. To ensure that they are not distressed, we keep them away from any building activity and materials that might harm them. We give the same levels of respect to all animals irrespective of whether they are domestic pets, livestock or wild animals that share near to your home. It is also Bromley & Gaines’ policy to ensure there is only the necessary minimal use of chemical products in our building or finishing work

As stated above, your project manager will be there to assist and support you through every aspect of the process. However, we like our clients to feel they are also an integral part of the overall undertaking so like you to remain involved. As an integral part of this process, we try to eradicate any disruption that working in your home can cause to your daily routine, therefore we do not suggest you vacate your home during the build process.
