Careys Civil Engineering, celebrating our 50th anniversary this year, has a proven track record of delivering projects that enhance the built and natural environments, communities and infrastructure of the UK and Ireland. 

Careys Civil Engineering - Our Capability

We believe in showing the world that construction doesn’t need to mean delays to programmes and costly alterations to projects. We believe in looking after our employees and our clients and working together to make sure that we leave a legacy to be proud of.

Our teams have played an integral part in the construction of basements and superstructures, developing inspirational landscapes and building reliable infrastructure across a wide range of sectors.

Whether undertaking design and build contracts or working as a subcontractor, Careys is a company that believes in delivering on our promises. We've invested millions of pounds in the latest technologies and training to enable our teams to achieve sector leading standards. Since our formation in 1969 we've invested heavily to establish offices across the UK and Ireland, training facilities at Milton Keynes and Livingston and to acquire our own plant and fleet. This includes specialist equipment such as vacuum excavators, tower cranes and self-erecting jumpform systems. We draw on the best techniques from any sector from around the world – there are no barriers or boundaries for us seeking excellence. Our investment enhances our capabilities, growing the skills of our people and enabling us to overcome ever more complex challenges for our clients.

We attract exceptional people and give them exceptional things to do. We work as a team, with our colleagues and our Group companies, to provide innovative solutions that have overcome some of our industry’s most challenging and complex problems across numerous sectors including retail, commercial, aviation and energy.
