The Hercules difference

With a reputation for excellence and recognised for our incredibly high standards throughout the water industry, our Civils Projects division have been able to efficiently expand into all sectors of the Civil Engineering industry, delivering the same high standards across a wide range of projects.

Working closely with our Labour Supply division and our Plant & Fleet division, we can react decisively and effectively at any stage of a project, whether that’s having an input at the design phase or utilising additional workforce as a project’s requirements change.

We believe in engaging early with our clients, working collaboratively to ensure all aspects of a project are reviewed and considered and that we develop solutions that are safe, robust and deliver value for money at every stage of our projects.

Client Testimonial

"We are extremely impressed with the work carried out on site so far... The management and supervision team are well experienced, competent and pro-active in their approach to conducting work activities and have presented some of the best RAMS I have seen in a while... The operatives are all extremely competent and their ‘training packs’ are complete (including fitness to work/safety critical certification which has been something I have had many problems receiving from other contractors)... their approach to H&S is obviously set in to the culture within the company and managing them is proving to be pleasurable."
