Brook & Mayo is awarded accreditation under SafecontractorThis SSIP award is a leading Third Party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in Health & Safety Management amongst UK contractors. We have for some time carried approval by other SSIP member organisations, CHAS and Constructionline.

Brook and Mayo goes Enviro-Mental!Brook and Mayo’s company colours have always been green but now we have decided to take it a step further and live up to our branding and GO GREEN. We have now pledged with Sustain Lincolnshire and Peterborough Environmental City Trust to become an environmentally friendly company. We are working towards achieving the Investors in the Environment ‘Green accreditation’. In order to achieve the accreditation we will have to show a reduction in our energy usage over a period of two years as well as write a full action plan on how we will continue to reduce our impact on the environment. This is a huge undertaking for Brook and Mayo, but we feel it is an important one as pressure to be environmentally friendly is ever increasing on companies and we want to do it!
