"Our roots in the North East go back to the turn of the last century. Our commitment to the region is demonstrated by many years’ close teamwork with a range of clients including local government, utility providers and private enterprise. We are proud to have created many of the region’s iconic infrastructure projects, including the Tyne and Redheugh Bridges, Tyne Tunnels and the Tyne & Wear Metro and we have been instrumental in many of the regions iconic buildings - Sage Gateshead, The International Centre for Life, Newcastle Library, The Core at Newcastle Helix, Stephenson Quarter redevelopment and the famous Spanish City building in Whitley Bay.

Around the world, our engineering, development and management specialists are pushing boundaries to make positive differences for our clients and their customers: combining digital technology and sector insights to transform delivery and outcomes; tackling climate change by cutting carbon and developing resilience; and making sure projects are socially inclusive: we know from experience that inclusive projects deliver the best results for everyone, our clients too.

We’re aware of the lasting and potentially far-reaching impacts of our work, which encompasses new infrastructure for transport, energy, water and the built environment, improvements to existing systems, and education, health and social development projects – all enriching daily life for users. For every project, we provide the blend of talent needed to create the right result: appropriate, reliable, cost- and resource-efficient, safe and swift to deliver and operate"
