our clients, our stakeholders and the environment, is our fundamental priority.

Through a passion for early involvement and with our directly employed, experienced workforce, supported by an extensive, modern plant fleet, we pride ourselves on our ability to be highly responsive, innovative and flexible.

Working closely with our Labour Supply division and our Plant & Fleet division, we can react decisively and effectively at any stage of a project, whether that’s having an input at the design phase or utilising additional workforce as a project’s requirements change.

We believe in engaging early with our clients, working collaboratively to ensure all aspects of a project are reviewed and considered and that we develop solutions that are safe, robust and deliver value for money at every stage of our projects.

“Good professional job from start to finish, where health and safety came first, and a high quality of work was always achieved. excellent supervision on site.
Very helpful in the event on an incident where they would provide us with teams. Also worked any weekends required of them.”

MMB - Works Manager

“Any additional feedback: I have been very impressed with the team on Farmoor WTW. Really professional and proactive with high standard of workmanship.
They have been installing cable ducting/CCTV bases and kiosk bases, this is a site that as lots of underground servicers. Lots of hand digging and using the Vac ex. Lots of unidentified servicers have been avoided. Very good communication from the supervisor, one small thing but showed to be very beneficial was the WhatsApp group that was set up. Brilliant, showed all the installation and helped to complete our ITFs. I would highly recommend the team I have been working with on this site.
Well done all and very well supervised. All a credit to Hercules Civils”

Galliford Try - Construction Manager

“Very good communication between both parties, good collab approach taken to achieving programme and working together. Relationship actually improved when HSS PM left project and HSS CM got more involved. H&S has been good, use of Vac Ex for excavation has worked well. Change Control has been effective, a pragmatic approach taken to small changes and focus more on getting it right first time.
A good project to showcase how collab working can work and successful project delivery cam be achieved.

JN Bentley - Senior Project Manager

“We are extremely impressed with the work carried out on site so far…
The management and supervision team are well experienced, competent and pro-active in their
approach to conducting work activities and have presented some of the best RAMS I have seen in a while…
The operatives are all extremely competent and their ‘training packs’ are complete (including fitness to work/safety critical certification which has been something I have had many problems receiving from other contractors)… their approach to H&S is obviously set in to the culture within the company and managing them is proving to be pleasurable.”

@ONE Alliance - Project Manager

“Just a quick email to acknowledge the effort put in today and yesterday with the safe and successful replacement of inlets suction valves on DWF Pumps No.3 & No.4. The installation of these required a lot of planning and co-ordination between various parties to ensure this success, so credit to all of you on this. The successful completion of these works provide huge confidence to Thames Water going forward, with a number of shutdowns still required on the project. We will hold a debriefing session next week to ensure the lessons learned and efficiencies are implemented going forward.”
