Environmental & Public Realm

From play areas and parks to city squares and urban landscapes, our passion for regeneration is reflected in the standard of our work.

With extensive experience of working in densely-populated urban settings, we can manage projects effectively with minimum disruption to the surrounding environment.

Being one of the only regional civils contractors to hold ISO 14001 certification for environmental management, we can be trusted to work in environmentally sensitive areas with respect for nature and wildlife.

Working closely with our clients from an early stage, we are able to help develop a scheme that puts life and vibrancy into the surrounding area. Careful selection of materials and a mixture of hard and soft landscaping techniques combine to create an environment that everybody will enjoy.

Using our considerable knowledge and experience, we are able to develop a works programme that enables swift progression of a scheme whilst minimising inconvenience to those affected.
