Purpose and values

What we do and how we do it contributes to a sustainable future for our people, customers and communities.


Our work makes a clear contribution to society and the environment around us. Whether we are building schools to provide inspiring spaces for learning, roads to connect communities or looking after hospitals to create the perfect environment for patients – it all contributes to our purpose – to build for a better society.

This is reinforced by a continued commitment to Safety, Ethics, Green, Community Investment as well as Diversity and Inclusion.


Our work is underpinned by our values that express who we are, how we behave and what we believe in. Living by our values helps us to make the best decisions, be successful and stand out for all the right reasons.
