If working with us seems easy, we’ve failed you.

Although we think we’re easy to get along with for the most part, that won’t always be the case.

We’ll be challenging there’s no doubt, but only because we know winning is not an easy task. Sir Robert McAlpine know this, as do Balfour Beatty, Alstom, and many more.

Our clients already know they won’t win with mild manners and muted aspiration. These projects have big ambitions, which require leaders in thinking, in acting; those who are brave enough to forge a path to success.

Our team bring best-in-class thinking, challenging and delivering to ensure you get to the front of the pack. Do you have the attitude we’d love to work with, to win with?

HS2 Civils packages  >

Where is HS2 going with this? It was a relevant question back in 2015 when we first started working with clients who wanted to be part of the largest procurement in UK history. Contractors needed to bring a pioneering spirit to the procurement, ready to go where others fear to tread. Let’s go.

We provided a strategy with accompanying brand identity for this Joint venture between Carillion, Kier and Eiffage. Along with their communication voice, we provided a strong bidding support team. Throughout the procurement phases, we kept our client team on message, surprising and impressing HS2. The CEK joint venture went on to win 2 packages of work, twice what they had targeted.

Thames Tideway Tunnel  >

Three of the most established international contractors; the largest UK civil engineering project to be procured in decades and three concurrent bids. Wow. We knew the Thames Tideway Tunnel was destined to be a hugely complex and high profile project.

We had also worked with all the partners in this joint venture before, many times. We were revved up and really excited about working on this bid.

Danish Rail - New Trains  >

We were brought in after our client Alstom, had made their first submission round, but found themselves in last place out of five bidders. We could see they had the right offering, one that could win this bid for 100 trains and 15 years of maintenance contract. So why last place after the first round of submissions?

Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat
