HVG Facades is proud to be a leading supplier of recladding materials to the Australian construction industry. In response to the mandated removal of all non-compliant polyethylene (PE) cladding, HVG Facades is committed to reducing the impact this waste material will have on our environment.
Your future ideas deserve a forward-thinking solution
HVG Facades has partnered with EPA registered and Green Star certified recycling experts to develop EnviroSmart™. EnviroSmart™ is a program that not only seeks to address a significant need in the construction industry, but it will also do so in a sustainable manner that contributes to the future health of our planet. This program is an end-to-end solution that provides a cost-effective and safe way to remove and recycle aluminium composite panels. As a complete solution, EnviroSmart™ can provide certified documentation of the entire process.
Why is certification so important?
Regulatory Bodies now require builders who have been contracted and approved under the cladding rectification program, to submit all records of cladding removal as part of funding agreements for individual building projects. HVG Facades’ EnviroSmart™ program will provide this certification and reporting to all our clients, making it easy for you and your team to comply with these new rules. The report will also provide you with Green Star certification.
Using natural resources more efficiently
EnviroSmart™ guarantees that 100% of non-compliant ACP cladding material will be diverted from landfill. Our solution will ensure that the aluminium and PE core from these panels is recycled right here in Australia. We will help stimulate a circular economy that will continue to move away from singular use products, by feeding recyclables back into the manufacturing stage to be re-used again.
Here’s how we’ll do it
Your non-compliant ACP cladding will be collected from site and transported to a specialised facility. The panels will be shredded and separated into aluminium and polyethylene powder using specialised technologies. The separated elements will then be re-used to make new building materials such as compliant aluminium packers that could be used for future recladding projects.
Reducing our carbon footprint
Together with our partners, HVG Facades will continue to innovate by investigating and identifying even more applications for recycled materials produced as part of the EnviroSmart™ program. As the task of removing non-compliant cladding continues to expand, EnviroSmart™ is committed to reducing any negative impact on the environment well into the future.
