Sectors and services

Tilbury Douglas

We build, repair and renew the nation’s vital services and infrastructure by providing a wide range of construction services, from project inception through to completion. This involves designing and building facilities that are used by everyone, including schools, hospitals, roads and water projects. 

We work in partnership with clients throughout the entire project life cycle, from the moment it starts to long after it has finished.


Every year around 85% of our work is procured through collaborative frameworks ('Construction Playbook' and 'Constructing the Gold Standard' aligned) which provides benefits including:

  • Early contractor involvement, engagement and advice to identify optimum solutions
  • Reduced procurement costs, through fast-track and flexible options
  • An outcome-based approach to focus on client and stakeholder priorities
  • Opportunity to employ innovations and new technologies to improve productivity, safety and decarbonisation
  • Regional delivery to maximise small to medium enterprise (SME) and social enterprise use, and deliver sustainable high impact social value outcomes
