The Green family roots in construction go back to 1971 when Ward Green Snr founded E.S.Green & Sons, a site works and landscaping company in Northern Ireland. The demolition division of this site works company, established by Edward Green, paved the way for continued growth and expansion in site works, demolition and remediation sectors. Today, over 40 years later, E.S.Green & Sons is a continuously operating building, civil engineering and demolition business in the heart of Northern Ireland.
The family owned and operated business with a third generation at the helm, pride themselves on the fact that they personally know their staff and they have strong relationships with their clients.
Growing up in the business, Edward and Ward share a wealth of knowledge and experience in safe, efficient and effective demolition work. “Demolition has always been an experienced or learned industry,” explains Edward, who goes on to say that over the years E.S.Green & Sons has gained a reputation for being one of the best in the field. “We employ a highly experienced labour force and encourage promoting within. Our staff and our equipment are a huge part of our ongoing success”.
Health and Safety, like most aspects of the construction industry, has its own distinctive challenges and vigilance is always imperative. Prior to beginning each project, the business undertakes a comprehensive analysis, outlining potential safety and environmental hazards on site, as well as identifying proper procedures to create safe operating environments. Each site is provided with a copy of E.S.Green & Sons Health & Safety policies at the beginning of every project. A Health & Safety manager is employed to monitor job sites for potential risks to employees, the company and the environment. Finally, the company undertakes weekly equipment inspections, and prepares and reviews daily site reports.
The intentional integration of specialized equipment and skilled employees enables E.S.Green & Sons to process its own demolition materials, offering disposal and recycling services that keep projects green.
E.S.Green & Sons continues to be a very strong and competitive participant within the building, civil engineering and demolition industry in Northern Ireland, continuing to build strong relationships in every aspect of the business. These strong networks are keeping E.S.Green & Sons ahead of the competition. Most important for the third-generation company, however, is the fact that E.S.Green & Sons remains a family business operating with family strong values and solid roots.
