About the Company

Based in Hertfordshire just north of the M25 this privately-owned business specialises in the construction of reinforced concrete frames and associated groundwork packages.

They offer a modern image with a very polished office, excellent in-house capability and great standards for quality in everything they do. They maintain a focus of developing their systems before expanding their workload and this is demonstrated by the fact that they own their building, their own large plant yard, their own formwork, their own plant and much more. The business directors are constantly focusing on investing back into the business to build in security for everyone that works there plus better working conditions and capabilities for moving forward. This truly is a very exciting business to work for.

Outside of the above, on a personal note it is worth mentioning that this office environment is second to none. With a breakout area that includes a pool table, a table tennis table and a fully stocked non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks fridge, there is obviously a good balance between work and play with in this business and with additional little perks such as a fully funded Ocado shop each week for everyone’s desired breakfasts and lunches, you get a real feel for how people matter to this company.
