Vision and mission
FIVE THRIVING BUSINESSES – ONE PURPOSE
To provide innovative solutions in construction, housing, scaffolding, specialist services and timber systems to both public and private sectors
Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, and we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor and deliver packages for customers; including construction, timber kit, scaffold and joiner work all by one business, with teams working collaboratively toward a shared goal.
We ensure the best value for our clients by balancing the use of in-house resources and an approved, established supply chain.
FAMILY AT OUR HEART
We are a family-run business with 26 years in the field. We’re proud of our heritage and have established an excellent track record built on trust. Our 200-strong team boasts a wealth of knowledge and experience, with a number of staff having worked with us for more than 20 years.
Our experienced, technically minded and motivated staff work as a team to manage the challenges and risks associated with individual project requirements to achieve success and ultimate customer satisfaction. This commitment is underpinned by the strong and lasting relationships we forge with our clients.
A LASTING LEGACY EVERYWHERE WE GO
Not only is it important for us to deliver an exceptional finished product that customers, project stakeholders and the local community fully recognise and endorse. It’s also important that we go the extra mile to make a difference to local people and organisations; undertaking volunteer work, getting involved in community projects, supporting local community organisations, donating resources for community enhancement and sponsoring community events.
Our expertise across our five divisions and ‘one-stop-shop’ quality set us apart in the marketplace. Our open and honest approach forms the basis of forging and maintaining strong and mutually beneficial relationships with clients, stakeholders and communities on all projects.
