Job Description

About the company:

Our client is a multi-disciplined, reputable sub-contractor who currently turnover £90m per annum. As a business, they specialise primarily within the water (wastewater and clean water) and infrastructure/non-infrastructure areas of civil engineering, with offices in North London, Kent, and on the South Coast. The company has some of the best employees in the industry working for them, they are very well respected across the utility industry and are currently in a period of steady growth.

Whilst the business is looking to expand, they are also keen to maintain their family feel atmosphere, offering an enjoyable working environment and everyone is treated as a name, not a number, with the respect from the directors across the company.

They are a relationship-based contractor and pride themselves on the quality of the work that they produce. This has led them to have repeat business with Thames Water, holding certain frameworks for over 30 years. On top of this, they have long-standing relationships with Affinity Water, Southern Water, and South East Water and have recently started working with Anglian Water.

As a business, they have transitioned into the Capital Delivery sector rather than Reactive Maintenance type works which were typically associated with this company. Their award on the LOT 2 Emergency Works Contract AMP7 supports this transition as well as being awarded and completing 40km of mains replacement (recent BCIA award) and securing a further package of 20km.
