Sustainability is a crucial factor in the companies future

AC Beck accent

Creating a pathway to prioritise the long term goals

Sustainability is meeting the needs of today without compromising future generations. In the fast paced world of construction this is a big ask but here at A.C. Beck we are trying to achieve the necessary steps leading us to a more sustainable future. This comes by imbedding good practise in the planning stages of all contracts so a simple but strategic path can be followed.

Bulk containers

A.C. Beck have been at the forefront with Dulux in developing bulk paint containers for use on lager sites to reduce packaging waste.

Paint can recycling

With Dulux, Crown and Johnstones we try and recycle as many empty cans as possible. Our target is to achieve 80% recycling by 2025.

Planet Mark

We have been engaging with Planet Mark to 'Benchmark' A.C. Beck, audit us and provide actions which we will be able to measure our development against.

Electric vehicles

A.C. Beck are in the process of replacing the fleet of diesel vans to electric. With increasing range and decreasing maintenance this is a 'no brainer'.

Over many years A.C. Beck have tended successfully for the repair and redecoration of Central London property, including blocks of flats and insurance-related flood damage work. The contracts have been performed with the skill and care expected of the sometime demanding occupants, and the contracts have been completed on budget. We look forward to working with A.C. Beck in the future.

We hired A.C. Beck as our decorators to work on painting 221 apartments and papering all the residential common areas. Once the pandemic hit they stayed with us throughout, helping with Aftercare as well as doing all the decoration for around 10 show apartments. Due to the quality of their work, in particular their papering, we also used them at our flagship Grosvenor Square development for a number of show apartments.
