As a major regional contractor, adding value to the communities in which we work is an important priority for our business. Family values define our relationships with customers, suppliers, partners and communities, and we are keen to deliver social value on every project. We want to leave a positive legacy for future generations, and we always work sensitively and supportively alongside local communities. To strengthen the social value of our business, we promote and support local charities, employ local people, visit schools and colleges, offer apprenticeships and training opportunities, and support community projects. We also add social value by adopting a sustainable approach to resource and waste management within our business and on site.
Working in partnership with our clients, supply chain and end users is essential to achieving safe, well-controlled projects that are completed on time and to high standards. By collaborating at every stage – from inception to completion – we aim to benefit all parties by sharing knowledge, optimising available skills and expertise, implementing best practice, challenging old ways of doing things, and identifying improvements or innovations. Such collaboration enhances efficiency and cost management, and drives continuous improvement through the life of a project. Crucial to successful collaboration is early engagement and integration across the supply chain. This enables all parties to understand the client’s priorities, improves communication, and allows decision-making and planning to be closely aligned.
We innovate by incorporating new ideas and different ways of working in order to improve our services. By employing the latest construction techniques, we enhance quality, cost and sustainability on many projects. Innovation is central to our continuous improvement strategy. Our supply chain and design teams collaborate to devise optimum solutions for every project, helping to save time and money for clients. Innovative ideas can come from anywhere in the company – from site teams to directors. Innovation can take many forms too, from health and safety improvements to BIM modelling; from deploying new technologies to adopting new budgeting tools. Innovation is key to providing the best possible quality and value to our clients – as well as to enhance the competitiveness of our business.
