OUR STORY

Born and bred in Yorkshire, Sewell Construction delivers a host of construction projects for both the public and private sector. Ranging from small scale extensions through to large scale new developments, we work collaboratively with our clients, supply chain and communities across the region, with sustainability and total quality front of mind.

We’re part of the Sewell Group, which means we have a long and illustrious history dating all the way back to 1876; that’s almost 150 years of experience in delivering not only construction projects, but investments, developments, strategic consultancy, data mapping and facilities management across the North of England.

For nine consecutive years, we’ve also been a Sunday Times Top 100 Place to Work For, also recently being recognised as a 3-star World-Class company to work for in the UK Best Companies survey.

Our biggest achievement to date is being one of only 18 businesses across the country to receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Promoting Opportunity as part of the Sewell Group – the most prestigious accolade a business can get. We have our people to thank for that, and with a culture that sets us apart from most, our mission is to be a great place to work so we can be a great and innovative company to deal with.

BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

What does sustainability mean to you? To us, it means keeping four key areas in constant balance to maintain a sustainable and healthy business, for maximum positive impact.

Our four pillars came directly from our people and were recognised as the key attributes of a successful business. We refer to these as our ‘Sewell Compass’ and it means we work hard to focus on each area equally, keeping our business objectives in balance.
