One Hundred & fifty years ago, things were very different. There were no cranes or diggers – just men with pick-axes, shovels and muscles. But change was coming. The expanding railway network brought with it better materials and new technology presented larger, improved equipment – the construction industry never looked back. Even looking back to our brochure from 1920 we state that our aim is ‘to uphold the best traditions of true craftsmanship and maintain the high standard of efficiency’ An ethic that has guided progress at the firm since its formation.
