Why Choose SRC Group For Recycled Aggregates
January 15th, 2024
Recycled aggregates are part of the sustainable future of construction. At SRC Group we offer a wide range of environmentally-conscious solutions from all of our locations, including recycled aggregates of the highest quality. In this blog, we’ll delve into why choosing SRC Group’s recycled aggregates is a forward-thinking decision for any construction project.
A Commitment To Sustainability
SRC Group recognises that reusing materials is soon to become commonplace. We move millions of tonnes of materials annually to meet the demands of the construction industry and have developed several new initiatives to combat our carbon footprint. We systematically track water, energy, dust, noise, and air quality across all our sites. Our commitment to sustainability involves regular audits and measurements of our environmental impact. Several policies are in effect to minimise emissions, and we adhere to WRAP guidelines whenever applicable. Our accreditation to ISO 9001:2015 is part of our ongoing commitment and we are incredibly proud of our in-house circular economy which involves reusing materials.
Our recycled aggregates play a pivotal role in this model, as we transform construction waste into high-quality materials suitable for reuse in virtually any construction project. By opting for SRC Group’s recycled aggregates, you contribute to the reduction of environmental impact and the preservation of natural resources.
Adherence To Stringent Quality Standards
One of SRC Group’s key differences is our meticulous attention to detail when it comes to quality. The recycled aggregates we offer adhere to WRAP protocols and undergo thorough in-house testing via our state-of-the-art systems, to consistently uphold the highest quality standards:
The process begins with water jetting; a thorough-washing process that removes impurities and contaminants from the recycled aggregates. Secondly, abrasion techniques are employed to refine the surfaces of the aggregates, enhancing their overall quality. They then undergo sorting using a cyclonic separator, to extract particles based on their size and density. Finally, mechanical sorting further refines the aggregates by grading them according to size, shape or other physical characteristics.
Our stringent washing and testing ensures alignment with the specifications outlined in the Highways 600 series and other British Standards. This commitment to quality ensures that when you choose SRC Group’s recycled aggregates, you are receiving materials that meet or exceed industry benchmarks.
Versatility Tailored To Your Needs
Here at SRC Group we understand that construction projects come in various shapes and sizes, each with unique material requirements. SRC Group’s recycled aggregates can be used in a wide variety of applications due to their materials, which include: asphalt, concrete, demolition waste such as bricks and masonry, railway ballast, rock/stone, and in some cases soil and sand. Commonly, recycled aggregates are utilised for:
- Pavement construction
- Noise barriers
- Drainage systems
- Structural fill
- Erosion control
- Landscaping and other decorative purposes
- Asphalt & concrete production
This flexibility ensures that you can find the right materials for your project.
