Putting people first

Our business is all about people. We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients. We want our customers to be completely satisfied with our services. We want to provide an environment where staff that are challenged but contented. We aim to make our supply chain a reflection of the company.  We strive to provide working environments which are safe and without risk to health.

We also believe that we have a key role to play in the communities in which we operate. We know that for many communities, poor cohesion, a lack of employment opportunities and low aspirations of many young people are key issues. We aim to make a difference - by providing employment, work experience, placements and apprenticeships, and by ensuring that we procure goods and services locally wherever possible.

Our ambitions are to:

Leave a lasting legacy in communities, helping them to thrive and prosper by enabling and creating a sustainable built environment.

Have a workforce that is safe, healthy, challenged and contented.

Inspire young people, particularly those who are socially-excluded, by providing opportunities for them to improve their lives.

Add social value to the communities in which we work that is aligned to local needs within the context of wider social environment.

Our milestone target is: To enhance the life prospects of 3,000 young people by 2015.
