We don't just provide construction services, we are building a community.

TJ Construction Management Ltd. is committed to protecting human health and the environment through compliance with applicable Federal, Provincial and local environmental laws and regulations. TJCM will strive to reduce the environmental impact associated with our operations.

We will achieve this commitment through the application of the following environmental principles:

  1. TJCM will comply with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.
  2. TJCM will not create unacceptable new risks to the environment and will strive to minimize risks from existing environmental conditions
  3. TJCM will strive to minimize the quantity and degree of hazardous waste resulting from its operation.
  4. TJCM will strive to become a leader in respect to environmental protection and enhancement.

This Environmental Policy is applicable to all operations.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

It is imperative that TJCM conduct all operations in compliance with Federal and Provincial Environmental Law, including the Canadian Environmental Protection Act and the Alberta Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH

Our ultimate aim as TJCM is to cause “Zero Harm” to the environment in all locations where we conduct our operations. To achieve this goal, TJCM continuously strives to prevent and lessen any negative environmental impact as a result of our work.

PREVENTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

Hazards to the Environment caused by construction activities must be controlled in the same manner as any other job site hazard.

TJCM Environmental Impact Controls which may be considered in project planning are as follows:

  1. Maintain company vehicles and equipment as per Manufacturer’s Specification for better efficiency.
  2. Idle vehicles and equipment for 15 minutes or less in cold weather conditions only or as per manufacturer specifications. Warm weather idling is not necessary and is to be avoided.
  3. Purchase environmentally friendly products when practicable (e.g. latex instead of oil)
  4. Site recycle programs (e.g. garbage separation of metal, wood, concrete)
  5. Calculate and order materials in reasonable quantities to eliminate waste; consider sharing extra resources with other projects.
  6. Shut down or limit energy use during non-working hours.
  7. Conservation of water where possible (e.g. recycling water from hydro tests or sweeping instead of hose washing.)

WASTE MANAGEMENT

TJCM has created and implemented Safe Work Practices and Safe Job Procedures directly related to the handling, sorting and disposal of waste. These Waste Management SWJP and SJP are to be abided by and followed on all worksites by all workers and sub-trades involved.

SITE-SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT

Site-specific Environmental Impact Assessment may need to be developed for eco-sensitive areas or in accordance with Federal and Provincial Government Standards and Community Safety.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organizations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders

TJCM implements a Management System, certified by QAS according to Standard ISO 14001:2015 (Certificate No. CEN1072).
