Team

We have a strong and established team bringing a wealth of internal and external construction experience to our projects.

With a diversity of specialisms from right across the construction industry, what brings us together is our determination to get the job done right.

We planned to have professional photos of the team taken but let’s just say that’s no longer practical due to social distancing rules. We hope you’ll forgive our selfies which at least mean you can see the smiling faces of our team.

He has high-standards, which means we can always count on him to push our safety, quality and environmental values. In the past, George was a fixer, a handyman who is now very handy with managing teams.
