BOVEY TRACY, England, December 1, 2010 - Plastic Surgeon, the UK's leading provider of cosmetic repairs, has won
the DEBI Environmental Goods and Services Award and was also judged to be the
overall DEBI Award Winner 2010.
The DEBI judges commented: "Plastic Surgeon repairs a diverse range of
damaged surfaces from kitchen work tops to stone cladding. The bulk of the
firm's work is in partnership with the larger construction firms and their
clients at the 'snagging' stage of a project. An exciting new area is opening
up at present with the insurance industry."
"The firm's Managing Director, Rob Mouser, impressed the judges by his
clear commitment to minimising waste and his wider ethos of good
environmental management. The building industry is responsible for over 40%
of waste generated - the building repair service offered by Plastic Surgeon,
to effectively repair damaged surfaces, negates the need to replace, and
therefore has a real potential to lower waste arising nationally."
"The judges were given an impressive demonstration showing the speed and
effectiveness of the repair process. This is backed up by comprehensive data
collection for the client which can then be used to put measures in place to
reduce the incidence / reasons for damage and further reduce waste."
Plastic Surgeon has collected some impressive statistics over the years,
for example, the company saved 2,171 tonnes from going to landfill in 2009,
by carrying out 216,475 individual repairs on 78,925 items ranging from
damaged doors, windows and baths to radiators, shower trays and brickwork.
Since 2005 Plastic Surgeon has carried out 1.6 million repairs.
Plastic Surgeon's Rob Mouser comments; "We have been encouraging our
customers to repair rather than replace for over 20 years, summed up in our
slogan 'Don't skip it, fix it' and I'm delighted that the judges have
recognised the environmental benefits of our service. We are increasingly
being called in to undertake repeat work for social housing and commercial
clients, as well as being very active in the education and retail sectors and
with individual homeowners, as more and more people appreciate the need for
sustainable building practices."
