About Suscons

Suscons disruptive approach aims to minimise carbon emissions and reduce the amount of plastic waste going to landfill by innovative design and working in collaboration with like-minded organisations to develop sustainable long-term solutions for the humanitarian sector. Our core purpose is to support those in need while complying with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Circular Economy by collaborating, designing and finding long-term cost-effective solutions to deliver high quality transitional shelters. We are adopting a more ‘cradle to grave’ approach to our projects by collecting waste uPVC plastics for use in our products and designing products to ensure re-use at their end of life so avoiding creating more waste.

Our Story

Suscons was formed from an innovative research and development project, Alternative Raw Materials with Low Impact (ARLI), led by the School of Engineering at The University of Birmingham, where Stephen and Peter met back in 2019. Since then, Stephen and Peter have focused on what to do with waste plastics and to use waste materials such as plastic bottles and rubber to make sustainable new products within the construction industry. Today, Stephen and Peter continue to carry out robust research and development into PVC plastics and to drive forward with innovative sustainable new ideas with the help of our partner, the University of Birmingham.
