Increasing Appreciation of Natural Facades
The increasing appreciation for natural facades, is regarded as one of the reasons behind the business’ recent success. The concrete, terracotta or wood can eventually be recycled within the supply change which represents a highly desirable sustainability feature.
James Butler, Pura’s Director explains:
“We founded the business four years ago to satisfy the growing demand for truly sustainable construction materials from architects and specifiers alike. The use of natural materials on new buildings has been growing over the last five years and this is a trend that looks set to feed into other areas such as social housing, especially as the bulk of our product range is certified as A1 non-combustible.”
A customer service focus is also significant driver behind Pura’s continued success.
James Butler continues “Contractors are faced with increasingly tight delivery programmes during the construction phase and need suppliers that can help them overcome these logistical challenges. Accordingly, Pura offers contractors off-site fabrication services and timed deliveries, two methodologies that can reduce errors and improve construction site efficiencies.
“We also work hard to help contractors achieve practical completion (PC), by providing toolbox training to site workers, giving them practical support to enable them to fill out their O&M manuals and even assisting in final snagging work. It’s these added value activities that help contractors to achieve project completion.”
