Our Commitment To The Environment

Topfix Interiors have successfully held and maintained our environmental management system, phase 3 of BS 8555 through the Seren Scheme since 2012, we always endeavour to not only be compliant but also to be ahead of the game ensuring that all of the main contractors we work with can do so in confidence that we meet all of their requirements.

All of Topfix Interiors material suppliers are required to fill out a questionnaire to confirm they operate in accordance with an Environmental Management System that is certified by a UKAS accredited organisation, a copy of which is required.

All of Topfix Interiors Waste Contractors must complete a questionnaire asking for their waste carriers licence number, where the waste is going, along with their permit or exception number. These details are then checked on a monthly basis to ensure they are still valid. We also request a copy of either ISO 14001 or BS8555.

Topfix Interiors have a system in place to check every waste transfer note to ensure they have been completed correctly and in full. A copy of every waste transfer note will be handed to the main contractor.

On all Topfix Interiors sites, the site supervisor has to take a photograph of the skip on the close of every working day. This is then sent to a WhatsApp group – Topfix Waste which is monitored daily to ensure offcuts are unable to be reused elsewhere and to ensure no cross-contamination.

On all sites, Topfix Interiors set up environmental sorting stations. These are pallets where any offcuts of a reasonable size are kept for re-use elsewhere in the project; by doing this we are minimising waste.

All sites must copy and hand to the main contractor any timber tickets showing FSC content of timber used.

Pre Covid, we carried out a monthly Environmental Site Visit where we looked at internal and external materials, sorting stations, signs of excessive materials or materials being stored incorrectly, timber POD showing FSC content, waste transfer notes, waste segregation, plasterboard skip usage and signage and toolbox talks on related environmental topics. This was documented by pictures and a report sent to the main contractor. We will reintroduce these Environmental Site Visits as soon as it is safe to do so.
