Welcome To PP Construction Ltd

Established since 1994 PP Construction are a groundwork and civil engineering contractor based in the South East of England. Generally we work as a subcontractor for our Clients although we also operate as a principal and package Contractor. We operate within a variety of sectors including defence, custodial, commercial, retail, education, residential, infrastructure, highways and for local authorities.

We regularly partner with our Clients from an early stage assisting them to plan and programme the works effeciently. During our pre-construction phase we also assist our Clients with value engineering and buildability exercises.  Once we commence on site, our own in house managers and engineers ensure that the projects are carried on time, to budget, safely.

This ethos has led to continued repeat business from clients such as Balfour Beatty, Wates Construction, ISG and Croudace Homes. The company turnover is   £10 million a year with projects ranging from £50,000 to £10 million in value.  We have operated under various forms of contract including;  JCT, NEC and client bespoke forms of contracts.

We are also currently in the final process of implementing OHAS Health and Safety Standard. Rather than rely on external consultants 10 years ago we decided to set up our own Health and Safety Department, managed by a NEBOSH accredited manager. We also carry out regular internal workshops at manager and operative level. These  are opportunities where everyone are able to offer their comments on what processes within the company could be improved.
