The process we use to deliver high-quality projects and our strong track record in health and safety, through to our sustainable practices and building techniques.
A. W. Hardy is passionate about doing business in a sustainable way. That means caring for our environment, caring for our people and delivering our services ethically and with integrity.
Our highly skilled design and construction teams are passionate about using innovative materials and methods that are not only sympathetic to the environment, but also ensure the longevity of the buildings we create. We encourage participation of local groups and stakeholders to ensure works are carried out in a way that accommodates community interests.
We employ a highly skilled local workforce and take pride in creating sustainable and rewarding job opportunities. Many of our team first joined the company as apprentices or have been with us for many years. We support our staff with first-class training and development opportunities, as well as via a comprehensive range of modern HR policies.
We regularly support our employees, clients, suppliers and partners when they take part in fundraising activities. We also participate in a variety of charitable events that help serve our community and a number of very worthy causes. For example, we sponsor Southend Council’s ‘Make Southend Sparkle’ campaign and have supported many other causes with our special Christmas donations.
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, with controls and procedures to ensure it has no place in either our company or our supply chains. We expect the same high standards from our contractors, suppliers and other professionals and only work with trusted partners.
We take every step to ensure that works are carried out smoothly and safely. To do this, we consult regularly with clients and stakeholders and, where possible, with community groups and other interested parties. Our teams are courteous, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile.
