Protecting the Environment

New Build
First in the UK
Surf Bristol Ltd

Construction of a 200m inland Surf Lake using ground-breaking Wavegarden cove technology – the first of its kind in the UK. This exciting facility will generate up to 1,000 quality waves per hours, ranging from 50cm (1.7ft) to almost 2m (6.5ft) in height.

The new build also includes an education centre for schools and colleges, a café and bar, a surf shop. There’s also external works for landscaped gardens and car parks

As part of our commitment to protecting local environments and minimizing environmental impacts, we implement our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, to minimise environmental pollution, dust, noise, contamination of water and light pollution. We will also use the Smartwaste® system to track, monitor and report on waste for our projects.

Throughout our 151-year history, we have zero reportable environmental incidents. It a key objective for the company to maintain this record. We apply our experience of successful projects to minimise the impact of our construction activities. Ensuring all works are delivered to the highest environmental standards with zero incidents - whilst giving full protection to our sites and surrounding environment. 

We also implement green travel plans, not only for site deliveries from suppliers, but also for site staff whereby they will be encouraged to use public transport and car share (subject to Welsh Government Covid-19 guidance). We have also recently invested in hybrid plant and vehicles for staff in order to reduce carbon emissions.
