On Friday at Nutbrook Aggregates we saw temperatures in double figures who would have thought it probably the warmest December on record….. better blow the dust off the barbeque and put the beers in the ice bucket, if you’re having a more traditional Christmas dinner try roasting the brussel sprouts absolutely fantastic and if anybody asks you about them tell them Nutbrook Aggregates suggested it.
The Nutbrook Aggregates Christmas raffle was drawn on Friday, theirs 5 prizes 4 off which are ‘liquid’ prizes so please call and check if its you!!!
The uses of aggregates are varied and well known. From construction work through to landscaping and road surfacing, aggregates have a thousand uses, despite being perhaps the least glamorous aspect of a job.
Although aggregates are, quite literally, the foundation and cornerstone of any project, very little consideration goes into their selection compared to materials used in other parts of construction. As long as it’s the correct type of material, it doesn’t matter, right?
Wrong! As with many things today, environmental concerns can impact on product choice. When designing a house few people would say that any old bricks will do, any glass or any tiles, and the same consideration should now be applied to aggregates.
Should You Use Recycled Materials?
At Nutbrook Aggregates we are delighted to be able to offer our customers a range of recycled aggregates, providing the same great quality and fulfilling all the roles of regular aggregates, but in more environmentally friendly way. Recycled aggregates can come from a wide variety of sources, including waste from building destruction, spare materials from road construction and even ballast from disused railways.
Recycled aggregates, whatever their origin, can provide real value when undertaking specifically environmentally friendly projects. From green eco-houses to modern garden design, the use of recycled aggregates can perfectly compliment the use of any other green materials you choose. Why build an eco-house and go through the effort of sourcing specialist materials but neglect to use responsible aggregates?
Far from only being useful in eco-projects or individual houses, recycled aggregates can be suitable for any job. In an age of environmental responsibility, it is important that businesses and governments are seen to be doing all they can to save the planet, and by supplementing existing plans with these new products any project can be made greener.
