We focus on sectors where we know we can bring our wealth of technical expertise and experience to add real value for our clients.

  • Commercial

    Pioneering new-builds, refurbishing office spaces.

    For generations, we’ve helped our clients create inspiring places to work.

    Environments that motivate - promoting health and well-being. Energy-efficient workplaces with the latest technology and sustainability built-in.

    Engaging with all our stakeholders in urban locations is challenging. So we plan creative communications that meet their varying needs.

    The result? Our projects win industry awards and we have a reputation for innovation in the sector.

  • Infrastructure

    Extending roads, railways, airports and ports.

    We've been expanding transport infrastructure across the country since the 1800s, helping contribute to the UK's economic growth.

    These days our engineers bring exciting innovations to life: high-speed rail, compact motorways and sophisticated air traffic control towers.

    Working in joint ventures or managing entire projects, everything is delivered to the highest standards of safety.

    We keep commuters involved through planned communications, while our approach to sustainability means we work closely with local communities and protect the natural environment for future generations.

  • Healthcare

    Hospitals, research centres and specialist healthcare.

    We create groundbreaking healthcare facilities.

    Working with staff, patients and visitors, we develop healing spaces that respond to patient numbers and needs. These facilities are equipped with the technologies needed by healthcare professionals to deliver the highest standard of patient care.

    We plan estate development to meet operational constraints, while managing the migration of equipment and people. With patient wellbeing at the heart of all we do, we provide calm therapeutic environments with minimal disruption.


  • Industrial

    High-tech production and manufacturing plants.

    We’re helping industries across the UK meet the emerging challenges of globalisation.

    Often working across large, complex sites, we help clients stay on top of technological changes, adapting plants and facilities to meet market needs.

    Understanding critical manufacturing yields, we deliver projects to tight timeframes with minimal disruption.

    And for retailers, we’re creating vast warehouses, so they can cater for the growth in internet shopping.

  • Heritage

    Preserving and reviving Britain’s heritage.

    We don't just create iconic buildings, we also transform heritage sites to meet the needs of today's users and visitors.

    Often working under public scrutiny, we sensitively manage communications to ensure transparency.

    We are adept at overcoming challenges encountered within historic buildings, and at working to avoid disturbance to both building users and the public.

    The outcome? Outstanding delivery thanks to our technical expertise and established network of specialists.

  • Residential

    Build-to-rent housing, student accommodation and hotels.

    We excel at creating outstanding accommodation that meets occupier and market needs.

    We have developed and built thousands of rooms in response to changing demographics and rising demand for quality rented accommodation.

    Using this extensive experience, we've developed reliable accommodation models, so our clients can be assured of the finished result, predictably delivered on time and budget and to the highest quality.


  • Sports & leisure

    Stadia, entertainment venues and outdoor leisure.

    Our sports and leisure venues drive tourism, attracting attention and visitors from across the globe.

    We apply world-class engineering to deliver the (near) impossible, such as reshaping the Eden Project site and raising the roof of London's Olympic stadium.

    And, with our supply chain partners, we provide specialists across a range of disciplines, from craftspeople to restore original features in historic buildings to experts who can provide perfect acoustics in arenas or theatres.

  • Education

    Inspiring schools, colleges and universities.

    We deliver exciting learning spaces for academics, staff and learners.

    We're experienced at modernising estates across the UK, helping clients derive maximum value from their assets.

    To help boost applications and improve the student experience, we deliver buildings that inspire and excite.

    And through precise planning and full engagement, our teams organise a seamless transition - from old buildings into new.

  • Retail

    Regenerating city centres and adapting retail estates.

    We’ve helped boost economies, transforming some of our largest city centres, and reviving civic pride.

    Respectful of the live environments within which we work, we are skilled at managing complex infrastructure and logistics for these projects. We engage with transport services, local businesses and customers through coordinated communications.

    We are aware of the challenges and conscious of key dates for shoppers in the retail calendar. We plan to the last detail, making delivery run like clockwork, so we finish on time or ahead of schedule.
