Black Diamond’s Environmental Management Plan (EMP) provides a framework to identify, assess, mitigate, and monitor environmental risks.
The use of modular structures for accommodation and general space needs can be an efficient and particularly sustainable solution when compared to traditional construction processes given the opportunity to reuse and recycle assets throughout their useful life. An asset may work for a number of different customers or in a variety of applications throughout its useful life of 20 to 30+ years, at which point it can be mulched and turned into reusable materials.
Environmental Advantage to Modular Structures
As modular building experts, Black Diamond works closely with customers across our segments and geographies to evaluate the efficient use of resources; from building materials, installation methods, management of water and waste, and the heating and cooling of buildings. Through partnerships with our various manufacturers and vendors, we are able to help source efficient, leading edge products that fit the unique demands of our customers.
Less Site Disturbance: Workers, suppliers and equipment traffic on-site is reduced greatly.
Less Material Waste: A controlled site makes it easier to recycle and protect the structures material.
Flexibility of Use: Modules can be relocated, assembled, and refurbished with minimal energy.
Reduce Construction Schedule: Modules can be produced at the same time the site is being prepared; which reduces the completion date by 30% to 50%.
Eliminate Weather Delays: Weather risk is minimized because 60% to 90% of the construction is being completed in a factory which, in turn produces a faster ROI.
Safer Construction: Working inside a controlled environment reduces accidents for workers.
Built to Code with Quality Materials: The modular buildings are also required to follow the same building codes as site-built construction.
