About us


Exploring our partnership with W&H Group

Unlike many other building contractors in Essex, A.W. Hardy has extremely close links with civil engineering and groundworks specialists W&H Group, which is based in Southend-on-Sea.

We specifically rely on W&H Group’s versatile fleet to transport aggregates and other large goods to our sites throughout the county and beyond.

Having an excellent working relationship between both sister companies and their staff allows us greater control when it comes to delivering projects on time and on budget.

Our director, Harry Hardy – who is also on the board at W&H Roads – says:

“Having our own equipment, plant and vehicles at our disposal is one of the keys to our success. It allows us to streamline our operations, without having to rely on the schedules and calendars of third parties. For example, if we are working on a site at a school premises, we will be working to short time frames for large vehicle movements in and out of the site, particularly for deliveries or muck away services. Having our own fleet of lorries means we have full control of what’s happening and ensures we can meet our clients’ needs in a faster and more efficient way than many of our competitors.”
