Sustainability

At Mozolowski & Murray Sustainability is central to what we do. Whether it’s how we source our materials, the properties of our insulation or the thermal efficiency of our glass we aim to be market leaders in sustainable design and build.

Green Ticks Scheme 2014_MG_5992

We are committed to achieving high environmental standards, both to satisfy our customers with long term energy efficiency and costs, but to also ensure we all take part in sustaining the world’s resources.

In 2013 we implemented an Environmental Management system to enable us to monitor our waste and manage our environmental footprint. The Green Ticks Scheme is a UKAS accredited Environmental Management System (EMS), designed to offer a methodology for organisations to register against the requirements of British Standard BS 8555:2003. The scheme is unique to Scottish businesses and is recognised throughout the UK and Ireland.
We were inspected in January 2014 by a UKAS accredited inspection body and were successful in passing Phase 3. We will continue to work hard to minimise our footprint and provide our customers with the best in sustainable design and materials.

Appropriate and sustainable materials

The quality of the materials used in a construction will guarantee the long life and high performance of your product. That’s why when it comes to specifying timber, we are uncompromising. Mozolowski & Murray is the only company in Scotland to use ‘engineered’ hardwood in its construction. The composition of engineered or laminated hardwood makes it one of the strongest and most durable timbers available, ideal for use where strength, stability and longevity are required. Our experience over many years has taught us that it is the best possible material to withstand the rigors of the Scottish climate.

Ethically sourced timber

The source of hardwood used by Mozolowski & Murray is very important and we work with Timbmet, one of the largest timber importers iWooden logsn the UK, who supply our timber from well-managed, documented, traceable and legal forest sources.

Our hardwood is sourced from Indonesia and Malaysia through a limited number of suppliers that have been evaluated through Timbmet’s supply assessment system. The system works to determine whether the timber or wood contained in the product is traceable to the forest of origin, legally harvested and from a well managed, sustainable forest.

An independent consultancy advises Timbmet on implementing this system, and provides checks on the validity and veracity of the information we hold on suppliers.

Comfortable and economical

Your bespoke product is designed to be a relaxing environment for use all year round. We are able to achieve this because we have selected the most technologically advanced materials available.

Every Mozolowski & Murray project incorporates Low Emission high performance glass. Low E glass is the perfect insulating material reflecting heat back into the room and reducing heat loss by over 75%. It is the equivalent of triple glazing and, because of its unique solar protection qualities will not only make your conservatory warm in winter but it will also keep you cool during the summer months.
