What We Do

We fund, design, manufacture, construct and maintain the built environment – providing the facilities to accommodate, educate, employ, transport, care for and sustain communities.

Engineering Expertise

We have been delivering sustainable, high-performance engineering and construction services for over 164 years.

Faced with unprecedented economic, social and technological change governments and organisations are challenging the construction industry to deliver higher quality, smarter solutions, faster and more cost-effectively.

We have considerable knowledge and experience in meeting the multi-faceted business needs of our clients across major sectors covering residential, commercial, mixed-use, schools, hospitals, water, transport, oil & gas, mining and materials handling, and power.

Building Construction

Our vast experience in construction has been instrumental in the successful completion of thousands of projects.

Capabilities include ‘buildability’ studies, Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), remediation and enabling works, logistics management, integrated construction delivery, building technologies installation and testing and commissioning of major building projects.

 

Infrastructure Construction

Our infrastructure businesses offer the full range of specialist engineering, construction and asset management expertise.

With a leading presence in the UK and Australian infrastructure markets already secured, we are rapidly expanding as a strong player in Canada, Hong Kong and the Middle East. Backed by 165 years of experience, our core strength lies in our ability to mobilise our extensive global resources to manage project execution across every phase of the project lifecycle.

DFMA (Design for Manufacture & Assembly) and Offsite Manufacturing

As the industry exemplar, we are investing to create real critical mass in the delivery of pre-assembly and modular solutions.

With a call for a step change in productivity and build quality, offsite and modular techniques offer the most realistic solution to this problem. The ideas behind this approach have existed for many years, however the entrenched self-interest and short-termism that characterises construction has stifled its wide-spread application. As the industry exemplar, Laing O’Rourke is making the necessary investments to create real critical mass in the delivery of pre-assembly and modular solutions.
