We focus on ensuring we look after and develop our people and communities through exceptional health, safety and wellbeing practices, career development opportunities and delivering tangible social value outputs.
Promoting health, safety and wellbeing
Health and safety is of paramount importance and we have a culture of ‘safety first’ amongst all our staff and sub-contractors. We strive for continuous improvement to eliminate any incidents and ensure our sites are safe places to work.
We are one of the industry leaders in construction safety and regularly receive top awards from RoSPA, CIOB and other top professional bodies. All our activities are guided by our Management Policy Statement and our OHSAS accredited management system.
Our people are at the heart of our business, and our family values ensure they stay and grow with us. By investing in their learning and career development, we retain the best teams of experts to deliver our projects to exceptional standards. All our people have Personal Development Reviews to ensure career development and effective succession planning.
Our inclusive culture is built around our core values and ensures employees can thrive and fulfil their potential.
In April 2021, we launched our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy. This Strategy is one of the core initiatives of our Responsible Business Strategy and will guide our business to collaborate with our people and partners to ensure we offer a workplace that is fair, accessible and rewarding for all of our current and future employees.

Developing sustainable communities
Social value delivery is a core part of our commercial service and we are committed to collaborating with the communities we work within. Every project has a carefully considered social value plan, which sets out how we will maximise benefits for these local communities. This often includes providing educational opportunities or work experience placements, creating local employment and training initiatives, and providing apprenticeship programmes.
It's important for us that we leave a lasting positive legacy. That's why we collaborate with local schools, colleges and universities, charities and community groups to provide practical support and funding for worthy projects.
We always strive to be considerate neighbours. As Considerate Constructors Scheme Partners, we register all our sites with the scheme. Through great communication, we work around our client’s needs by ensuring noise and other disruptions are kept to a minimum. By managing risk, we also ensure the safety of the communities close to where we work.
