Higgins Construction

We are not just a construction company. We are a business that is committed to building better, stronger, safer and more sustainable communities.

We work closely with our partner organisations to reduce the mark we make, safeguarding the environment for future generations.

From buildings and bricks, to bats and birds – there are many elements to consider in construction. We take them all very seriously by incorporating green and sustainable practices across our business. That includes recycling or reusing materials, reducing energy and water use, and complying with all the requirements of our ISO 14001 accreditation and our Considerate Construction Scheme membership.

Higgins Construction has been accredited by The Planet Mark Certification Programme since 2013 for its continuous improvement in sustainability.
