About the project
These are exciting times for the Interserve Construction business which has embarked upon a Creating Sustainable Value change programme building on already strong foundations to create a modern and successful business.
The programme includes adding environmental and social value, being more effective and creative by being more inclusive and diverse and streamlining our businesses to cut waste.
A key enabler to achieving the above is becoming a manufacturing organisation, using production line techniques, and defaulting to offsite manufacture.
This is fundamentally changing for the better our work environments and will make us the employer of choice for a dynamic, creative, and diverse workforce.
We will deliver differently and better (safer, quicker, cheaper, and right first time) and have set ourselves up as a manufacturing entity adopting a modern approach to construction.
In the above context we are delighted to have been selected to work in partnership with Yorkshire Water on Four Frameworks incorporating Civils and MEICA disciplines to deliver fantastic infrastructure, brilliantly and to make things better for current and future generations.
We have committed to working collaboratively with Yorkshire Water, our valued strategic suppliers and other stakeholders to embed MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) to realise leading safety, health and wellbeing, quality, customer service, sustainability and efficiency performance improvements.
To achieve the above we will warmly welcome into our team people from all walks of life who are looking to thrive in a high energy, dynamic, close knit and creative production team environment.
