Materials and raw materials

The materials and raw materials that are transported to and used at constructions sites have also their environmental impact. Our most frequently used raw materials and materials include plain and modified road asphalt, cement, concrete, steel, hydraulic binders, lime dust, asphalt aggregate (including sand and grit), construction aggregate (sand, gravel), road aggregate (sand, grit, etc.), hydro-technical stone and railway breakstone. The following may be reprocessed: slag, rock spoil, cement, crushed-stone aggregate for bituminous mass, crushed-stone aggregate mixes, concrete, steel, wood.

The effective management of a demand for materials and raw materials and their recycling is possible thanks to value engineering (VE) – a monitoring system for their use, applied to optimise the use of materials and to limit the amount of produced waste. VE allows us also to reduce costs, which is a very good example of an activity aimed at the reduction of the investment’s adverse environmental impact with simultaneous business benefits.

To optimise the transport of materials and thus minimise the carbon footprint of the entire investment, we have a network of our own bituminous mass factories, which, if necessary, may be relocated within five-six weeks.
