Our partnering approach has been developed and refined over many years, emphasising our commitment to our customers and our supply chain partners to work together to achieve our goals.
We form relationships with all our customers and suppliers. These relationships are built at all levels, on all projects, and are based on an open and honest partnering approach.
We ensure early integration of designers, the client team and stakeholders during the design process which enables better relationships to form, and results in a better quality and quicker service to be delivered. Our experience has shown that the early establishement of relationships based on mutual trust and good communications, leads to openness, transparency and innovation. This process has improved the quality of the delivered service and the finished product by enabling early recognition and resolution of potential affordability and buildability issues. As a result, the design time can be reduced by ensuring that optimum solutions are achieved first time, and a reduction can be made to construction periods through the development of the programmes alongside the design.
The successful delivery of our partnering approach is due to the consistently honest, open and cooperative behaviour of our employees. The integrity of our employees is reinforced through their compliance with our behavioural policies (Anti-Bribery Compliance Policy, Ethics Policy and MCUK Behaviour & Disclosure Policy) which form part of our employee induction process. Our training is revised and refresher courses implemented in line with changes to our policies and current legislation.
We have never had any legal actions for anti-competitive, anti-trust or monopoly practices.
We are proud of our partnering approach, which not only differentiates us from our competitors but has led us to be recognised as a market leader in partnering.
