However, we also know that the construction process can be a challenging experience for communities, particularly in built up areas.
Our team are proud to exhibit a proactive attitude to minimising disruption, including flexible working hours and innovative plant and working techniques. We understand our ability to have a positive impact on the communities we work in, and we aim to spend as much of our procurement budget locally in order to support local businesses.
Giving back is something we firmly believe in, and we have supported an array of charities, sporting institutions and communities. This has been both through indirect donations and through direct charity, volunteering our skills and time for community projects.
