Our main priority is keeping people safe, whether that’s our own people, our contractors or members of the public. Therefore, managing work safely and in an environmentally responsible way is central to everything we do.
We make sure that all our works exceed the latest safety and environmental legislation.
To ensure that our supply chain partners deliver the same high standards we set ourselves they are selected through a rigourous tender process, and we work closely together so that projects are delivered with the highest standard of safety and sustainability.
We have received a number of awards for sustainability and best use of natural resources over the last few years, in partnership with our supply chain. For details of our achievements please visit our Industry Recognition page.
