The Healthcare sector is our biggest provider of work. Since 2010 we have been working for various NHS Trusts and we have built unrivalled knowledge and expertise in working in these environments. The live and highly restrictive and sensitive environments that healthcare projects present are what we enjoy and where our expertise and experience can be put to the true test.
