Think Global – Act Local is a partner of the collective known as the Green Skills Partnership CIC and strives to address issues within the Construction sector that need immediate attention.
Being involved with such an organisation that focuses a lot of its environmental responsibilities,
Think Global – Act Local, plays a positive role in overall deliberation which, in this instance, relates to
“up-cycling” of un-used materials from Construction Operations.
Initially an idea of Director Grant Lukacs, his father Steve has now moved the project forward, in tandem with the Green Skills partnership CIC, to enable realisation of the concept.
Steve Lukacs has many years of experience as a Construction Site Manager and therefore has a very good background knowledge of the problem this initiative is trying to address to a positive outcome. He has, in the past, done some “trails” to determine uptake within the Industry to good effect.
Along with his colleague Tony Sanders, who represents the Green Skills partnership CIC, they intend to work with the Industry to negate a problem, both locally and Nationally, that all Construction sites have to deal with, especially those with several build phases. Also, allowing local residents, and training providers, being able to access new materials, at zero cost to themselves, is seen as somewhat of a “ground breaker” in concept.
Meet the Team
Highly experienced Construction site manager with over 25 years in working in variables of sectors within the Industry. His acute awareness of the environmental impacts of Construction processes led to Steve instigating programmes that were aimed at helping negate said impacts via cutting down on the amount of waste that the Industry generates. This initiative led, over a course of time of trailing such programmes, to the formation of TGAL and Steve now leads and oversees the endeavours they have put in place.
