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.
Our proven track record has provided us with continuous repeat business and unique opportunities from emergency maintenance, to full live ward refurbishments, to working in highly sensitive anti-ligature and mental health departments.
