We measure our Health and Safety performance and compare it to annual targets set by the board. Monthly site Health and Safety Inspections result in scores that are reported in our monthly project league table.

Trust  us to deliver Quality

Consistency is the key to successful delivery time and time again. We achieve this through our Quality Management System. It has been developed and evolved over many years and is audited and accredited under ISO9001. Each contract undergoes a monthly quality audit on our own company designed app. The score forms one part of our monthly project league table.

Trust us to deliver Efficiency

We believe in these busy times having the ability to contract multiple elements to one single source is attractive to our clients. However this is only attractive if they can be sure that the contractor has the multiple skill sets and people to deliver these various elements. Again our experienced team bring the knowledge to deliver across all disciplines to a consistent high level.

This process is delivered across the company from the Managing Direcotr to the general operative as we believe we all have the ability to improve, never accept the ability not to learn.
