The Carey Group is a leading family-owned construction business, operating across the UK and Ireland. Formed in 1969 by the three Carey brothers, we have continued to evolve and grow developing new capabilities through innovation and learning. We are proud to deliver an extensive range of engineering, build and construction services on some of the most prestigious projects in the world. Our Group companies provide specialist construction services - asbestos removal, demolition, civil engineering, dry lining and house building together with resource recovery services across multiple sectors.

Our strong approach is underpinned by robust financial management, continuous investment in our people, specialist equipment and strategic assets and our long-standing culture of teamwork – we strive to create the very best environments. We may be a different organisation than the one formed in 1969 but our culture and values haven't changed. Our values of quality, integrity and loyalty are made clear from the way that we work, the construction challenges we overcome and the solutions we engineer for our clients. Everything we do begins with the words on our Group banner - 'we care'. We care about our people and our clients and how we work with them, ensuring we do our best by them. Ultimately, we care about our impact on the world around us and the communities that we proudly help to shape.

Heritage

The Carey Group has a proud history as a family-owned engineering, construction and resource recovery business. The Group was established in 1969 by Careys' Chairman John Carey, Tom Carey and Pat Carey. The brothers' vision was to build an exceptional business committed to delivering on its promises and producing high-quality work in a safe environment whilst maintaining their strong ethics and well-grounded family values.

Our Governance Framework

Our continued success is testament to the following four key groups: our founders (and shareholders), our executive board, our operations board and our teams.

Our founders provide a wealth of insight, focus and vision. Their knowledge, experience and direction continue to be driving factors in the success of the business today. 

Our executive board is tasked with evolving the Group and securing a sustainable future. They provide an environment of empowerment, nurture and support to all our people whilst retaining a focus on delivering value to our clients and a profit to our shareholders.

Our operations board coaches and supports our teams to aid the delivery of projects. They shape and form the direction of the Group by ensuring every voice is heard and acted on.
