We pride ourselves on a friendly approach and commitment to building strong relationships with clients, consultants, suppliers, subcontractors and staff.  The group employs close to 900 people, many of these providing long term service and invaluable experience.  Likewise, our external relationships have seen many repeat projects and associations that have developed beyond the business environment.

Our link to the Trust

Alf Russell, started the group with the first company AJ Russell Bricklayers in 1965. He understood the importance of teaming the new generation with the “old hands” mixing new technology and approaches with tried and tested experience.  Since Alf’s passing in 2011, the companies have continued to support the growth of our industry providing apprenticeships and cadetships in a number of disciplines.  With a long association with Keystone Trust, we are proud to now also be offering a Keystone Scholarship in Alf’s memory to continue developing the industry leaders of the future.
