Making a Difference

We believe in forging a better future for the communities we help create. That’s why we work closely with our clients, stakeholders and local communities to leave a positive legacy through every project we deliver.

From our award-winning apprenticeship scheme and STEM initiatives through to our volunteering, charity and wellbeing programmes, we actively support and invest in local communities, schools and the next generation of engineers. We are passionate about tackling the climate emergency, and are committed to reaching Net Zero in line with the requirements for keeping global temperature rise under 1.5°C.

Through our Corporate Social Responsibility framework, we support our clients and partners to meet their own strategies and objectives, undertaking joint social value and community engagement activities on schemes of every scale. We draw upon our experience of delivering social value through our many framework appointments with public and private sector clients and long-term partnerships.

Our social value strategy is aligned with the UK Government’s Social Value Model and the UN Sustainability Goals, and by understanding our clients’ priorities and setting out clear KPIs and tracking systems, we ensure social value is always delivered consistently, no matter what the scheme.

Our Charity Partner 2022-2023

Each year, our people select our charity partner for the coming twelve months, and we’re delighted to be working with Macmillan Cancer Support throughout 2022-2023.

With an estimated 3 million people in the UK currently living with cancer, Macmillan understands how difficult it can be if you or someone you care about receives a diagnosis. With an extraordinary community, both online and in person, they offer a variety of services from treatments to managing your finances and will do whatever it takes to give you the support you need.

Since launching our partnership in June with a company-wide Jubilee Tea Party to kick-start our fundraising efforts, our people have taken part in a huge range of activities. From tackling Tough Mudder events around the country to enjoying the Big Coffee Morning, and from our exciting London Games Night to a commemorative 1,000-mile cycling event, we’ve had a blast so far – and we’re only just getting started!
