Our Highways division specialises in the design and delivery of large-scale complex projects across the UK for the public and private sectors.

Our experience spans many decades and covers an extensive range of works of varying complexities, from major highway construction on the trunk and minor road network to high specification public realm works for some of the UK’s largest cities.

We understand the complex challenges such schemes can present, as well as key success drivers, from traffic management that maintains peak traffic flows to stakeholder consultation that builds positive relations with local communities to delivery of challenging sustainability requirements – we work collaboratively and flexibly with our clients from day one, forming partnering relationships in order to gain complete understanding of their requirements and any constraints. Applying precision, foresight and technical expertise, we develop sustainable, optimised solutions that consistently demonstrate value for money and ensure delivery on time.


Undertaking major highway schemes that encompass both new construction and improvement works, our experience includes complex design and build projects to adoptable standards, Section 278 works and upgrades to the existing highway network, as well as expertise in the design and implementation of all forms of traffic management. 

Public realm 

As one of the country’s leading contractors for the design and build of public realm works, we consistently deliver outstanding projects for our clients, enhancing urban environments and driving sustainable development and economic growth. Our insight into this specialist area of construction enables us to expertly manage key project success factors such as quality and public relations. Our impressive portfolio includes many major projects in cities and towns across the UK.


As a large civil engineering contractor, we have the scale, strength and expertise to successfully manage and deliver complex structure projects. Our experience covers construction and refurbishment of highway bridges, footbridges, retaining walls and culverts, using both in situ and precast methods.

Development & Infrastructure

With a long and successful track record of delivering enabling works and infrastructure packages for residential and commercial development schemes across the UK, we are the first choice for many private developers, house builders and local authorities and work closely with our clients from the outset to assist them in achieving their vision.

Environmental works

Creating and enhancing natural open spaces for use by the public whilst incorporating initiatives that both protect the environment and enable it to flourish is one of our passions. Our experience covers a wealth of projects, from earthmoving works to flood defence and rural landscaping schemes.
