About Us

Our Vision

To be renowned for our work with clients and communities as we construct a better world for future generations.

Our entrepreneurial spirit means we are continually looking to the future.

We are committed to building on our infrastructure and construction heritage, taking pride in everything we do and making a meaningful contribution to society.

Our vision reflects our commitments to improving the world around us, meeting the changing needs of our clients and partners, building the next generation of careers in construction, and making sure the communities where we work see maximum benefits from the buildings and infrastructure we create.

Our focus is firmly set on being leaders in our chosen sectors and using technology and data that will inspire and improve the industry. We intend to grow profitably, consolidating relationships with trusted clients and supply chain partners, and becoming stronger and more resilient.

Our Purpose

We are proudly building Britain’s future heritage

For us, this goes beyond the projects we deliver and extends to the positive, long-lasting legacy we leave within society.

While the catalogue of world-class projects we have delivered is a huge source of pride to us, our charitable, community and outreach work is equally as important. We are delighted to have Maggie’s, ParalympicsGB and the Construction Youth Trust as our corporate partners, and to work with ActionFunder to support grassroots organisations making areal difference to people’s lives.

We are committed to creating a truly inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and welcoming a diversity of talent to our family culture, as we proudly build Britain’s future heritage.

Everyone is welcome at Sir Robert McAlpine.

  • Inclusion

    We believe being inclusive and nurturing a diversity of talent and skills will help us to continue our positive legacy. We also believe it’s the right thing to do. 

    So, we are committed to leading by example on inclusion and diversity and inspiring industry-wide changes which will benefit future generations.

    Our commitments
  • Sustainability

    Following our commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), we have pledged to set verifiable science-based targets in line with a 1.5oC warming scenario.

    As part of our transition to a low carbon built environment, we are aiming to be Net Zero Carbon by 2025 and adopting new ways of working and skills, such as Passivhaus certification. We are also committed to building communities with heart by creating social value on all our projects.
