Our ISO UKAS accreditations are registered with the Peers Quality Assurance Limited and audited on an annual basis. PQAL strive to ensure the highest possible customer service and satisfaction, whilst also having complete compliance with the Accreditation Bodies.

ISO 14001 sets out the framework for an environmental management system within our business, this gives assurance to our stakeholders that our environmental impacts are measured and consistently improved. Our impact on the environment is reduced with the use of natural resources, handling and treatment of waste, and energy consumption.

Considerate Constructors

Encon carefully consider the communities around construction

Encon Construction register all projects with the Considerate Constructors Scheme. The scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment. We have received performance beyond compliance and excellence awards for many of our sites, and continue to work at achieving this on all sites.


All our sites registered with the Scheme are monitored against an 5 point Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements. The Code consists of the following sections: Environment, Appearance, Safety, Workforce and Community.
