Built Environment and Support Services

Building top teams

With population growth, the demand for housing and the supporting infrastructure, the importance of the built environment and the people that create it has never been more critical. Increasing numbers of people mean more demand for more homes, hospitals, schools and offices – with all the infrastructure required to support them. We work in partnership with a wide range of clients across the building and civil engineering sectors including housing, public infrastructure, and transportation and the practice works closely with colleagues in the energy team – particularly utilities.

Supporting expansion

Our expanding population is driving a transformation across the built environment and accelerating the need to invest and grow our infrastructure. From the transport network to the energy programmes needed to heat and light tens of millions of homes across the country, change is essential.

We have decades of experience providing and advising on the talent and expertise needed to design and deliver major public and private sector projects. This includes everything from residential schemes, schools, hospitals, retail and commercial developments to more major infrastructure schemes, across the water and utilities, highways and transportation, and power generation sectors.

A challenging housing landscape

The UK housing and construction market is facing considerable challenges in the wake of mounting inflationary and interest rate pressures and the escalating need to improve sustainability performance. To rise to these challenges, construction and materials firms must embrace technological innovation, adopting more customer-centric approaches and new design priorities. Doing so will not just draw new customers but is essential to ensure we can attract the high calibre of project managers and construction executives needed to build a better environment.

Specialists in every area

We take pride in being specialists and not generalists within this growing sector. Whatever discipline you work in, from construction management to infrastructure design, we will partner you with the expert support you need to identify and attract the talent you need to flourish.
