All of their operational, commercial and pre-construction team operate out of their newly refurbished Central London office, which offers their employees the ability to jump on the train to their sites within 30 minutes. The benefit of this allows complete cooperation across all departments, creating a stream line process and team approach.

At present, our client is working on several live projects throughout London and the surrounding Home Counties, with further workload secured in the pipeline for 2020.
