About us

Creating better places is our purpose and our passion

Our team of 20,000 works across four continents – making us a leading supplier of consulting and infrastructure support services both in the UK and internationally.

We’ve been in business for nearly 100 years. We’re proud of our long history and the difference we make; serving the communities we work in, whatever the weather and whatever the challenge.

We create safer, smarter, and sustainable places to live, work and travel. By designing, building, maintaining and investing in our country’s services and infrastructure we make a difference including engineering, facilities management, utilities, transport, environmental services, defence and justice.

We know these are the services that matter – the ones you rely on at home and on the move. That makes us the faces behind the services you use every day – and together, we’re helping to create better places to live, work and travel.
