Past, present and future

Established in 2016, our team has decades of experience from the Nottinghamshire County Council’s Highways Department and a range of other highways organisations. Over that time, we have developed an excellent reputation within the industry, delivering innovative, cost-effective solutions, time and time again.

Now, we are preparing for our next phase of growth. Fuelled by the needs of the Nottinghamshire community and local business development, we are putting our skills to work in more ways than ever before. 

Driven by experts
Everything we do is driven by expertise across the business. And every end-to-end project needs collaborative people who can share the journey.

With expertise including highways maintenance, design and consultancy, construction, signals and lighting, landscaping, environmental management, land surveying, road safety, fleet services and a dedicated highways training centre, we work in partnership with local and National organisations to deliver great results, first-time, every time.

The Newark Waste and Water Improvement Scheme is a £60m Severn Trent Water project to protect over 1000 residents in Newark from sewer flooding. Working with a diverse range of partners, our expertise allowed the project and life in the local community to keep flowing smoothly. This scheme is a great example of how we connect innovative people with positive outcomes.

Dedicated to innovation

Innovation is at the heart of what we do today and how we plan for tomorrow. This is where innovation connects people with progress. And this calls for people with a growth mindset who can collaborate and bring innovative thinking to our partnership way of working.

Over the last 12 months, the innovation of using Ultifoam to recycle tar bound material has proven to be a cost-effective solution in dealing with contaminated waste arisings from highway maintenance activities, whilst also having environmental benefits.

Our place in the progress of Nottinghamshire is one we take very seriously. Our work impacts the lives of residents and keeps the wheels of business moving. Our work in the private sector is accelerating to complement our support in the public sector.

Rooted in responsibility

Everything we do is grounded in societal benefit and rooted in responsibility for the people who work here, the people we serve and the environment we work in. We’re always looking for ways to bring societal and environmental benefit to each and every project. This purpose-led approach is the right thing to do. And our people are at the heart of our determination to drive business forward in a way that’s good for people and the planet.

We’re proud supporters of the people of Nottinghamshire and we’re a hugely supportive employer for the people who work here.

Formerly Church Drive Primary, Arnold Mill Primary located to a new site in Autumn 2008. Working closely with the Architect and the Head Teacher from concept stage to detail design, we have created an environment that encourages learning both inside and outside. We developed challenging and imaginative children’s play areas and provided an interesting and varied external environment with a clear sense of space and place.

By following the ethos of Learning Through Landscapes (the school grounds charity), good design of outdoor spaces enables children to make the most of the school’s grounds. It provides opportunities for healthy exercise, creative play, making friends, learning about and getting in touch with the natural world. Imaginative and stimulating places experienced during childhood are remembered throughout a lifetime.
