GECA & Growing the Green Building Industry

Successful building schemes have had an important relationship with ecolabels and have also influenced our criteria. Many GECA certified products are appropriate for building interiors, for example, furniture, carpets, floor coverings and panel boards. We have also developed standards for cement and concrete, waste collection services, steel and more. These are critical materials for Australian buildings and infrastructure. They are also highly intensive in terms of impacts, including carbon.

The Mawson family business started making concrete at a small batch plant in Cohuna in 1960. This new venture into concrete complemented the existing civil construction, quarrying and transport businesses that E. B. Mawson had been operating in the region since 1912.

In 1960 the technologies surrounding concrete production and placement were quite basic but the team at Mawsons learnt quickly and with their typical innovation set about developing a range of products and delivery services to reliably satisfy customers’ needs.

Over ensuing decades new batch plants, products, admixtures and agitator trucks were regularly added to Mawsons’ Concrete business.

Concretors, Builders, Contractors and Government Authorities became regular customers and great partnerships were formed. Hundreds of thousands, then millions, of cubic metres of concrete were poured. Homes, factories, warehouses, piggeries, dairies, hatcheries, hotels, motels, schools, hospitals, swimming pools, bridges, weirs, water tanks and underground mines; many now over 50 years old, stand as testament to the ingenuity and skills of the people who make and place Mawsons’ concrete.

Today, Mawsons take great pride in offering a wide range of Normal, Special and Decorative mixes across a broad swath of regional Victoria and southern New South Wales. With a large fleet of modern maxi and mini delivery trucks equipped with the latest safety and mixing equipment, specialist technical support and plenty of good, old fashioned experience, Mawsons offer an unrivalled level of service to support their quality products.

GECA is seen by major clients across Australia and internationally to be a credible organisation that provides certification to forward thinking companies that seek to maintain and further environmental standards. Envirofluid is glad to be associated with the GECA label”.

Lydia Ohlmeyer, Marketing and Operations Manager

Being an environmentally aware business, we needed a way to ensure, adhere and implement sustainably preferable strategies into our business plan. The team at GECA is co-operative and their guidance ensured that we not only complied with green standards, but exceeded them. The process is credible and well-received in the market place and ensures that we are set apart from the not-so-genuine ‘greenwashing’ companies.
