Our business is organised around five key market areas: Construction, Living Space, Interiors, Retail and Developments. Within each business, we have created specialist groups of people who focus on a particular sector – for example; education, Government work, small works, data centres, retail banking.
This has a number of direct and powerful benefits for our customers.
Each employs specialists in their field who have a deep and experienced understanding of customer needs in that sector, the key drivers for project success and the skills needed to deliver effectively.
These specialists are tuned into the changing nature of the market. They are alive to Government expectations or regulations, how funding routes are changing, what new building regulations will affect this sector and what changes in how the buildings are used will influence design. So you can talk to them peer to peer, confident that they understand where you are coming from.
They set strategy and develop new offerings, so you know you are getting the very best service in your sector. They provide the stability, performance expectations and resources of a national contractor, with the specialist services of a dedicated sector provider.
Our business leaders seek to influence their market through thought-leadership. Many of our Business Unit Directors sit on influential committees in industry-related bodies, so they are at the heart of what is new and forward-thinking in your sector.
