We create value for clients, stakeholders and communities by taking a leadership role in the built environment, working in a sustainable and responsible way and by making a positive impact in the lives of people in the UK.

Established in 1852, our business has grown to become a modern £1bn turnover business that has retained a focus on the people we employ, work for and that live in the communities in which we work. We employ 3,500 people at offices and sites across the UK, attracting and retaining the very best people in our sector.

As a privately run company we put shared value before share price.
