Quote from the top...
“In a year that has been really challenging for all of us, at work and on a personal level, this award is even more impressive for our company. Looking after all our people and our partners, providing them with a stable and positive working environment, encouraging them to strive for excellence with our clients, is something that we are absolutely committed to. To be recognised as one of the top companies to work for, not only locally, or in our sector, but within the UK, is something I am incredibly proud of on behalf of all our teams – very much an achievement that is testament to all of our people across our building, facilities and civil engineering businesses.”
