Case Study: GBN goes the extra mile for Higgins

Higgins Construction Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England and has been working with GBN for over 20 years. The company, which has its headquarters in Loughton, Essex, believes it is essential for construction firms to work with a reputable and trusted waste management partner.

“We chose GBN over other waste management providers due to our longstanding relationship, continued good service and competitive rates”, explains Paul Smith, supply chain manager at Higgins.

“We have built up a very good working relationship with everyone at GBN, from Sam our account manager to the depots dealing with our sites on a day-to-day basis.”

GBN currently handles waste from 14 of Higgins Construction’s sites across London and the South East, providing waste removal via skips, drums, wheeled bins and the safe removal of hazardous waste. Material is brought back to GBN’s network of six depots for recycling, where GBN draws up detailed reports.

The relationship has enabled Higgins to divert more material from landfill—and to save money.

Mr Smith explains: “GBN’s professional ethos in terms of landfill diversion and the recycling reports, provided on a monthly basis, means it is easy for us to analyse our waste streams and enables us to set better waste strategies at the start of a project to save money on the removal of waste.”

Mr Smith says that GBN has gone the extra mile for Higgins on numerous occasions, reacting to problems they have on site and getting waste collected quickly.

For all these reasons, he recommends GBN’s services to other construction firms.

He comments: “As a construction contractor working in London communities, we always need a sensitive matter, such as waste, to be managed by professional companies. This is why we use GBN.”
