Supply Chain Partners

Central to our commitment to delivering excellence is our collaborative approach with our supply chain partners.

Established supply chain.

We work with supply chain partners who share our values, our client-focused approach and our commitment to excellence in project delivery.

This results in lasting relationships which drive innovation and deliver best value for our clients.

Working with us

We are always keen to explore new opportunities to work with ambitious businesses and industry leaders.

Our procurement process is designed to be transparent and fair. This ensures our supply chain understand our requirements and work collaboratively with us to arrive at the best solutions to deliver our projects and services to clients.

We are members of the Achilles BuildingConfidence and Constructionline accreditation schemes and use these platforms as tools to determine the competency of our supply chain. To be considered for work with us:

  • If an SME: you must hold Constructionline membership (minimum Silver / Level 2) with a fully verified status and hold a valid certificate from a SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) approved health and safety assessment scheme provider.

All other supply chain members must hold membership with Achilles BuildingConfidence (one or two day audit).

Boosting sustainability knowledge and skills

As a founding partner of the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) we encourage and expect our supply chain to utilise the school’s resources to enhance their sustainability performance, which in turn helps us deliver against our sustainability targets.

  • Collaborating through BIM

    In 2019 we will be launching our BIM Supply Chain Competency Portal, an online platform which will allow us to improve our ability to engage and collaborate with our supply chains for the benefit of all parties, including our clients.

    The portal has been designed to measure a supply chain partner’s maturity in terms of BIM delivery and will highlight any areas requiring development whilst providing resources for our supply chain to develop their internal capability. 

  • Labour practices

    We are a signatory to the Gangmaster and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) Construction Protocol and actively work with our industry peers and partners to combat unethical labour practices.

    We expect our supply chain partners to share the same commitment to combating unethical labour practices and to work with us to ensure that we are part of an industry that is proud of how it treats its workforce.

    To find out more about what we are doing please see our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.

  • Framework agreements

    We are eager to deliver consistent service quality to our clients and on this basis we have forged framework agreements with a select group of market leaders in our supply chain. These agreements deliver design and technical support, robust technical and commercial solutions, innovation, and ongoing service and support throughout the life of the project and beyond.
