About Us

Our Heritage

A contemporary building and civil engineering business, we are building on strong foundations.

Our reputation is founded on 150 years of technical excellence and innovation, our entrepreneurial spirit and our future-focused approach.

We have been a stable presence in the industry since our first contract in 1869 – the repair of a mine chimney for £2.45.

Since then we have delivered many of the building blocks of our society, including landmarks and iconic structures that place us at the heart of the UK’s history and future landscape.

As we look forward, we continue to build on, strengthen and apply the values that have always been at the heart of our operations: an absolute commitment to our clients, our people and our partners, as well as to the highest standards of technical excellence.

It is this ethos that will help guide us as we proudly build for the future.
