Creating better places is our purpose and our passion
Our team of 19,000 works across four continents – making us a leading supplier of consulting and infrastructure support services both in the UK and internationally.
We’ve been in business for nearly 100 years. We’re proud of our long history and the difference we make; serving the communities we work in, whatever the weather and whatever the challenge.
We create safer, smarter, and sustainable places to live, work and travel. By designing, building, maintaining and investing in our country’s services and infrastructure we make a difference including engineering, facilities management, utilities, transport, environmental services, defence and justice.
We know these are the services that matter – the ones you rely on at home and on the move. That makes us the faces behind the services you use every day – and together, we’re helping to create better places to live, work and travel.
We get the job done
We think two heads are better than one, and 10 heads are better than two. That’s why we work in partnership – with each other and you.
We work with more than 15 local authorities to help keep towns and cities running smoothly, including Birmingham, Sheffield and Staffordshire. And we also partner with clients like the Highways England, BAA, United Utilities, Network Rail, Ministry of Defence (MOD), Metropolitan Transport Authority in New York as well as Australia’s Roads and Maritime Services.
Our collaborative approach means we get the job done, on time and to budget. Our clients trust us to deliver – whether it’s providing key utilities, collecting refuse, or maintaining roads and railways.
We believe in sharing our knowledge and learning from best practices. It’s how we make sure we do things a bit better every day.
Delivering on our promises
We understand delivering public services faces challenges, budget restrictions and deadlines. That’s why we prioritise concerns and work in partnership with communities and clients – to help you meet your goals and overcome any challenges along the way.
Building strong, open relationships with the people we work with – internally and externally – helps us create solid foundations on every project. It allows us the flexibility to leverage our international expertise and bring fresh ideas to the table.
Helping you make smarter decisions
We work in partnership with some of the world’s biggest asset owners. Helping them to make better decisions every day.
Decisions for assets like roads, railway lines, airports and bridges. Decisions that take into account long-term maintenance costs, as well as operational costs. So we won’t design a bridge that looks impressive but costs a fortune to run. We call this ‘clever engineering’. It’s ‘clever’ because we think about the safety requirements and the disruption costs. And because we have some really smart people turning complex data into real solutions every day.
