Our Mission: Deliver better together
22 Jul 2022
The construction industry plays an integral role in quite literally building the future. Collectively, those working in the industry have a duty to make sure this is done in the best possible manner – and we know that the key to really doing this is for us all to work together.
This is why collaboration has always had a central role in our operations, working closely with our colleagues, clients, supply chain and key stakeholders to ensure the highest quality and best value outcomes for the projects we work on. This collaboration will continue to drive the way in which we work, with our key missions all hinging on this idea of delivering better together.
Managing partner Duncan Green said: “For us, ‘deliver better together’ is not just a phrase, it’s a definition of our culture and underpins our way of life at Pick Everard. It defines our approach to our people, our teams, our clients, and the communities and environment in which we live.
“We know that we hold the position in the industry to really make a difference and pride ourselves in working to create a better future, leaving a positive and lasting legacy wherever we work. Through collective efforts with supply partners, project teams, clients and the wider industry we are able to innovate, solve problems, develop better outcomes and create the sea change needed on key industry challenges."
Deliver Better Together... for our people
We know that our people are our biggest strength, so every decision we make for the firm has them in mind – and involves them too. Our regular engagement with our people shapes our approach as a business, driving towards a culture of togetherness where everyone is welcome and able to be themselves.
Creating a work culture that promotes diversity and individuality is incredibly important to us – especially working within an industry that has a long-standing challenge with diversity. We work hard to employ the right people who embody this inclusive and compassionate approach, leading to a work environment where everyone is valued.
Equally, we are completely dedicated to taking care of our colleagues, with multiple initiatives, tools and processes in place to make sure that their health, safety and wellbeing are well cared for in the workplace.
Deliver Better Together… with our team
We know that the way we work sets us up for success. Our integrated and cohesive approach – offering full management and design support – allows our industry-leading experts to collaborate with each other and wider project teams to share the knowledge and experience required to develop the very best outcomes for clients.
As well as this, we are continually innovating. Whether it is investing back into technology and tools that allow us to do things better or working in coordination with our supply partners to find bespoke solutions to individual challenges, we rise to the challenge to make sure every single action is the best that it can be.
Deliver Better Together… for our clients
Putting the client first will always be our dedication. We are committed to delivering real value to every client, with our client-oriented attitude positioning us to drive real value, efficiency, and positive economic impact.
Our industry, market and customer knowledge is second-to-none, allowing us to align to the individual requirements and values for any scheme. Our open attitude to sharing expertise positions us to help upskill and inform our clients and key stakeholders, leaving a legacy of best practice and understanding wherever we work.
Deliver Better Together… for our communities
We work to be a positive force within the communities in which we live and work, engaging with communities to ensure the delivery of true social value.
Collaboration across project teams, with the client, key stakeholders and end-users plays a big role in ensuring that the projects we deliver provide communities with the high-quality assets that will have a positive impact on the way they – and future generations - will live, work, learn, and play.
Deliver Better Together… for our planet
We are committed to tackling the climate emergency, with sustainability being firmly at the heart of absolutely everything we do. Making sure we lead by example; we have a commitment to achieving net carbon zero by the end of 2022.
To make sure that the most sustainable outcomes are achieved for every project, our sustainability experts collaborate with our clients and wider disciplines from the outset and brief setting for any project. Continual consultation sees us sharing this expertise with clients to ensure that the environmental impact of their schemes promotes positive change, carbon neutrality and increased biodiversity.
To make sure that we stay at the forefront of the latest developments in sustainable built environment practices, we engage with best practice groups and coordinate knowledge sharing to shape improvement across the wider industry.
