Contracting

Many projects involve a lot of hefting, building, digging and cutting in sensitive environments, which is easier said than done if you don’t have the training, resources, relevant licences or equipment.

If you’re working amongst potentially fragile ecology, you need contractors who are experienced in environmental heavy work. You need contractors who work hand in hand with trained consultants and specialists as part of one team.

We have experienced in-house environmental contractors who are well practiced in working in environmentally sensitive and protected sites. They co-ordinate with our other teams to ensure the approach is appropriate and the result is always an environmental gain.

Our work meets the requirements of the Government backed CHAS scheme and individuals hold all relevant certificates. All our contracting work is covered by our ISO14001 certification for Environmental Management.
