From building a small house to erecting a skyscraper, in the construction process we have the expertise and equipment to make it happen.


Our commitment to the construction sector spans almost seven decades. It is one of the largest markets in the UK valued in 2014 at around £120 billion. Using both public and private finance it is involved in new-build as well as the maintenance and repair of existing buildings:

  • Housing
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Offices
  • Leisure centres
  • Warehousing units

For both ongoing repair and maintenance operational cycles, and the temporary nature of new-build construction sites, we supply a broad range of hire products and services to ensure all projects are delivered on time and on budget.

Our huge annual investment of over £150 million in new equipment is unrivalled and ensures the youngest, most reliable, safest, and greenest options are available to our clients.

Our award-winning training ensures that operatives are working in complete safety.

Our on-site inspections help contractors to be fully compliant, abiding by the necessary regulations.

We have over 135 Service Centres, strategically located across the UK, with the capacity to open temporary sites for key construction projects where needed.

Each project is different and we provide fully customised solutions to meet the exacting and specific needs of our clients.

Our specialist divisions offer a breadth of expertise and give us the ability to provide a one-stop solution for our customers. This single, focused approach is both cost and time efficient.
