Creating concrete products and buildings that last, our cutting-edge UHPC has numerous advantages over traditional concrete and other manufacturers too. For one, we have been able to reduce the amount of cement used and replace it with Ground Granulated Blast-Furnace slag (GGBS), a naturally forming by-product that would otherwise be added to a slag heap.
At CubeX Industries Ltd, we believe our only impact should be creating durable and enduring concrete. For this reason, we endeavour to make environmentally sound choices in everything that we do and work with clients, suppliers and employees in order to achieve our sustainability goals. The strength, ductility and hardness of our Ultra-High-Performance-Concrete means that it also requires fewer materials than normal concrete to achieve the same result. It also provides a viable solution for sustainable construction when you take into account the average traditional concrete building will last ten or twelve years.
Resources and waste management
We responsibly source all our materials from a number of local suppliers, which grants us more flexibility and greater control over quality. While we cannot ensure our suppliers always use materials from within the UK, our research shows these raw materials are easily mined, refined and manufactured here. Most concrete is also manufactured with cement, and by its very nature, it usually always has an impact on the local environment. UHPC, on the other hand, produces minimal waste in fabrication, allowing for longer life expectancy and resulting in LEED credits for the overall project.
Promoting eco-friendly construction, at CubeX, we set targets for reducing our carbon emissions. We also seek to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels by finding alternative and renewable energy sources. Additionally, CubeX works with Swansea University to not only ensure a more environmentally friendly concrete but to also remain at the forefront of ecological concrete.
A healthy, safe place to work
At CubeX, we incorporate health and safety, the environment, quality and responsible sourcing into everything that we do. Our employees are also given rigorous training in the handling of raw materials, and we provide the appropriate guidelines for the operation and maintenance of our plant and processes.
Client relationship management
With a close working relationship with significant bodies in the concreting sector, we have invaluable insight into the industry as a whole. This knowledge is passed onto our clients, providing support on sustainability goals, and in turn, bettering their relationships with local communities. Taking into account the needs of our clients brings many benefits such as enhanced reputation and a smoother planning process. Our visual concrete also promises to enhance the architecture overall and achieve a truly stunning result - sustainable design and build at its best.
