Preconstruction Manager – Groundwork and RC Frames Contractor 


About the company

This business is one of my top clients. Having worked with them for the past 10+ years I have seen them develop in both size and capability over this time. They now currently turnover above £100 million per annum, building concrete frame and groundwork packages ranging in value up to £20 million each for a variety of residential contractors and developers throughout London and the surrounding Northern Home Counties. They have a very modern edge to the business while maintaining traditional roots and are still privately owned by the original MD (who is a true gent).

On a personal note, I believe this company is one of the best not only for the projects they help complete but also because of the environment they create for the people who work there. They go that extra mile to not only to retain their staff but to truly keep them happy to be with the business. Small things have been added to the office like a gym that people have access to all day with extra half an hour break given three times a week for anyone who wants to use it. They have a treatments room where massages and cosmetic treatments are available to everyone on Fridays free of charge, all you have to do is book in. With plans in place for a roof top garden and BBQ area, I’d want to work here myself if I had the relevant experience in this role!  They really are a great company to work for to gain great project experience, to develop capability in modern construction techniques and to be part of the values they believe in.
