Collective values and shared ways of working

We engage with the very best subcontractors and suppliers.

These are teams we can confidently rely on day-in, day-out, across the breadth of our operations.

Most important to us is that supply chain partners share our ways of working.

They align with our values, aspirations and culture, especially when it comes to safety, innovation, valuing people, getting involved in local communities and meeting client’s expectations.
