Equality and Diversity

Our greatest asset is our staff and we believe in careful selection in the first instance followed by regular review and appraisal from which our training and business development plans can be formulated. In the last 10 years we have completely altered the age profile and skills set of the business to reflect changes in the way the construction industry operates, the emergence of newer IT tools and how we have chosen to respond. We now have a technical team that is highly specialised in many areas yet flexible enough to react to changing work patterns, the demands of IT and email in particular, web based information, screen based measurement packages, the need to travel and to work with consultants and Clients from across the UK and beyond. We have recruited young A level students from school and developed a part time degree structured learning model that is providing us with the next generation of high quality technical professionals and hopefully business leaders. At the root of all of this is the belief that we are in a professional services business and that people are important; we encourage diversity and believe in equality as is evidenced from our staff mix across the UK and all of this is formalised in our Equality and Diversity Policy further details of which are available on request.
