We have all the technical know-how, people, plant and equipment to deliver the largest and most complex of construction projects.

Your construction project delivery partner.

At Sir Robert McAlpine, we proudly put together project teams that work for our clients. That means bringing together the right mix of skills and expertise at the right time.

We design, develop, build and preserve some of Britain’s most iconic buildings and with highly trained, experienced professionals across a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds, we have a fantastic pool of talented people to draw on.

Those who can make a difference at every stage of your construction project and who take pride in delivering the best outcomes for you.

From managing costs and programme to temporary works, site management and building relationships with the local community, we’ve got it covered.

We also provide a one-stop-shop for site set-up, plant, logistics, access and lifting. High quality, creative solutions which are safe, reliable and offer excellent value for money.

With a wealth of experience working in constrained environments, we are experts at finding the very best logistics solutions for your projects.

And because we do everything either in-house or in collaboration with proven supply chain partners, clients benefit from our one-team approach.

That means better communications, rapid response times and maximum value to project teams.

Construction Plant and equipment

We can help you select the right type, size and combination of equipment for your project, from tower cranes to hoists and vehicles. We can also advise on location and transportation, avoiding potentially costly delays.

And with a highly trained team of in-house plant fitters and erection and dismantling experts, we won’t just help you mobilise quickly, we can also respond rapidly to any site requirements once your project is live.

Because we can install, maintain, diagnose and repair a wide range of plant and equipment that means less downtime on site. It also avoids the need to call on more costly outside expertise.

In addition, we can provide the latest instrumentation and equipment required to support modern technology-enabled construction techniques, from drones to geotechnical monitoring and laser scanning.

  • Industry-leading expertise in access, logistics and specialist lifting, plant selection and specification

  • Site set-up, office and welfare accommodation to help you get the best from your teams

  • An extensive modern fleet of 80 tower cranes and hoists
