Recyclable hoarding wins National Framework Agreements

ISG Pearce and The Apollo Group have awarded Ecosheet, an environmentally friendly alternative to plywood, with National Framework Agreements – the first of their kind for hoarding.

Ecosheet uses local waste plastic to make water-impermeable panels suitable for construction hoarding which are entirely recyclable at end-of-life.

Leading construction companies ISG Pearce and The Apollo Group are specifying the product across key areas of their businesses.

Both ISG Pearce, with its client ASDA, and The Apollo Group have successfully trialled EcoSheet on retail and social housing projects respectively. 

The success of the trials led both companies to confirm their ongoing commitment to EcoSheet by signing agreements implementing the use of EcoSheet eSite on their sites.

An ISG Pearce spokesman said: “We have been extremely pleased with the way EcoSheet has performed as external hoardings in recent trials.”

Apollo environmental and sustainability manager Andy Merrin said: “The introduction of EcoSheet provides us with a viable alternative to plywood, significantly improving the durability and aesthetics of traditional hoarding.”

Other major contractors who have trialled EcoSheet are looking closely at utilising it in place of plywood for hoarding. One of them, Bovis Lend Lease, was instrumental in the early development of the product, through successful trials on site.
