Sustainability can be defined as “maintaining an ecological balance” as well as “an ability to be maintained” and sustainability is very much a keyword in modern building and, as such, at William Gray Construction. The company plans to be at the forefront of new building technologies as well as recycling or re-using building materials as much as possible. William Gray Construction successfully built houses at Scotland’s Housing Expo using techniques to re-use water and superb insulation to conserve heat.
All carcassing timber used in our projects is sourced from a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited supplier and we recycle concrete and stone, onsite where possible, by crushing.
William Gray Construction supports a wide variety of organisations, individuals and charities to promote goodwill and local interests.
In past years, we have been promoters for the Highland Heartbeat Challenge with many of our staff involved as entrants or marshalls or providing transport. We have also made significant contributions for Macmillan Cancer Support, Maggie’s Centres and the local MS Society as well as support for the Highland Cross.
Last year, Mr William Gray took part in the Everest Highlanders Cycle to raise funds for the Highland Hospice Project Build Appeal. The group cycled around the north of Scotland, completing the uphill equivalent of Mount Everest! Several local businesses promoted this on the company vehicles as shown below.
