Thomas Johnstone to recreate sustainable expectations...

Updated: Jan 12, 2021

Thomas Johnstone are set to redefine their sustainable strategy during decommissioning and refurbishment works after becoming the first organisation in their industry to be granted Recreation Certification.


TJL are the first organisation in their sector to be awarded the Recreate Certification.

The group continue to live up to their promise to continuously build on their standards of excellence via their latest sustainable accreditation. A push for a waste to resource strategy during decommission works was implemented at the turn of the year and will focus TJL's redundant asset handling protocol towards 1st generation reuse strategies and away from traditional recycling and landfill methods commonly relied upon in the sector.

"The Recreation Certification provided us with guidelines and solutions for the redistribution of redundant resources for the works at The Grand Central Hotel and allowed a sustainable re-fit process to progress. It just seemed wrong to be putting all this stuff in a skip!"

- Brian Fletcher - Contracts Manager.


The adoption of the Recreate Certification, spearheaded by Brian Fletcher - Contracts Manager for the group and Stuart McKellar - Senior Q.S. - will see circular redistribution strategies implemented for FF+E during periods of decommission and refurbishment. Commencing January 2020, the group piloted new sustainable guidelines during 3 phases of work at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow in line the zero cost redistribution model producing a 100% landfill diversion rate on all FF+E with 86% of goods entering the circular reuse process facilitated by Recreate Certified associates.
