Celebrating 150 Years

In 2019 we celebrated our 150th anniversary. 

This milestone year provided an opportunity to honour the vision and hard work of all those who have played their part in our long and successful history.

Their passion is echoed today in our people’s work with our clients and partners to create and deliver exemplary assets that benefit society and enhance our quality of life.

Innovating and adapting 

Maintaining and growing a successful business for 150 years takes more than passion and pride alone.

Our longevity reflects our ability to understand and anticipate the needs of our clients and wider society, innovating and adapting in response to a changing world.

Creating strength through stability, it also speaks to our family culture, our entrepreneurial spirit and the enduring values that run through our business.

This milestone provided an opportunity to reflect both on where we have come from, and our plans for the future. To help mark our anniversary and the start of the next chapter in our story we refreshed our brand identity to reflect our standing as a contemporary construction company with a rich heritage and a strong, values-led family culture. 

We also created a special 150th Anniversary version of our logo.

Throughout the year we celebrated with our people, our clients, partners and contacts, reflecting on our achievements and but also looking forward to the exciting future we see ahead.

Building on our legacy

Throughout the year we looked to  build on our legacy, offering the people we work with a chance to make a difference within their local communities and on projects that were close to their heart.

We hope that sharing our story and our passion for construction will help showcase the many opportunities within the industry and inspire a new generation of professionals to join our ranks.

Our rich history of engineering excellence and technical innovation has helped shape Britain’s landscape and contributed to raising standards in the industry.

It is a legacy which we are determined to build on as we look to realise our vision and continue proudly building Britain’s future heritage.

Throughout our anniversary year we’ll be celebrating our achievements; the people who have helped us along the way; our fantastic legacy; the values, culture and spirit that set us apart; and our vision for the future.
