Buckingham Group

Buckingham Group

An owner-managed, multi-disciplinary contractor, Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd provides a range of stand-alone or fully integrated services in building, civil engineering, demolition, land remediation/restoration, facilities management, sports and leisure, and rail.

With a turnover approaching £300million, and working on a sound self-financing basis, Buckingham Group is a successful business operating on a stable financial footing. They have the senior management structure and the staff resources in place to achieve the goals and targets in their business plan, including remaining an owner managed business and achieving growth of circa 10% per annum.

As a family/owner-managed business, Buckingham Group maintains a business ethos based on traditional “family values”. The company care about their people, the communities in which they operate and take pride in the projects that they deliver. They retain and develop high-calibre directly employed staff across all disciplines.

With a head office near Silverstone, plus regional offices in Warrington and Bristol, the company has nearly 60 years of experience to offer all of their public and private sector clients.

The company’s history dates back to the formation of Buckingham Plant Hire in 1955, with Buckingham Group being formally incorporated in November 1987.

Over the past 25 years the company has grown organically to become a well established main and principal contractor, undertaking major, multi-disciplinary, construction projects.

Buckingham Group has substantial experience and understanding in the delivery of complex projects that embrace safe, sustainable and considerate construction. Their approach is based upon: safety for all; careful identification, management and, where possible, elimination of risks; environmental protection and enhancement; quality and timely and cost effective execution.

The company has already undertaken projects exceeding £85 million in overall value, and whilst still catering for smaller scale contracts, the company is equipped and resourced to take on larger multi-disciplinary projects. Where appropriate, Buckingham Group also works in alliance or joint venture with capable and like-minded companies to undertake much larger contracts.

Buckingham Group prides itself on the ‘can-do’ attitude of staff, management and directors and focus on delivering excellent levels of service on every project they undertake.

The company’s approach, regardless of forms of contract, is to work in collaboration with clients to understand their needs and the constraints under which their project will be constructed. From this level of understanding, they then deliver projects safely, on programme and to budget.

In delivering their corporate social responsibilities, Buckingham Group believes in treating customers fairly, based upon an open and trusting relationship between client and contractor. Their aim is to work for clients of a like mind. Evidence of the success of this approach is the significant levels of repeat business that the company enjoy.

Buckingham Group’s Management Systems are implemented via a formal, third party audited, Integrated Business Management System (IBMS) that complies fully with the requirements of: BS OHSAS 18001:2007 and the Behavioural Safety Programme, “All Ways Safely”; ISO 14001:2004 and BS EN ISO 9001: 2008.
