Sir Robert McAlpine joins AUDE

23 January 2019      Martin Higgs, Communications Officer

On the eve of our 3rd annual Big Conversation event we are delighted to announce that Sir Robert McAlpine (SRM) have joined AUDE as a Business Partner member.

Grant Findlay of SRM will join us at the Big Conversation on Thursday 24th January.

One of the UK’s most well-known building and civil engineering companies, many of our members will have long-established working relationships with McAlpine colleagues, and the company will need little introduction. Nevertheless we’d be happy to make one! We asked the McAlpine team to describe their organisation, and so in their own words…


About Sir Robert McAlpine

“Sir Robert McAlpine is a family-owned building and civil engineering company operating across the UK. 

In 2019, we are celebrating our 150th Anniversary. Our longevity reflects our ability to understand and anticipate the needs of our clients and wider society, innovating and adapting in response to a changing world. Creating strength through stability, it also speaks to our family culture, our entrepreneurial spirit and the values that run through our business.

If there is one reason for our enduring success over the last 150 years it has to be our people.

They embody the commitment to technical excellence, client service and exemplary project delivery that make us the company we are.

Our people want to be the best, delivering the exceptional, time and again. It is an aspiration that unites us all and the reason we have worked on some of Britain’s most iconic buildings and projects, such as the Olympic Stadium, O2 Arena, Emirates Stadium, and the Eden Project.

We have been able to do this by continually adapting and evolving, looking to the future and using new technologies and techniques to deliver the best results for our clients.

We’re not just passionate about shaping towns and cities and landscapes. We’re also committed to making a positive impact on communities and environments, and leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come. That means working closely with our business partners, leading by example to drive progress and inspire industry-wide changes.

It also means creating and nurturing an inclusive environment which fosters a diversity of skills and talent as we look to push the boundaries yet further.

In the education sector, we have a strong track record of delivering exciting learning spaces for academics, staff and learners, such as the refurbishment of the University of Leeds Student Union, the Jodrell Bank SKA Campus for the University of Manchester and the Claremont Complex at Newcastle University.

We are experienced at modernising estates across the UK, helping clients maximize that value from their assets.

To help boost applications and improve student experience, we connect facilities using architecture that inspires and excites.

And through forward planning and full engagement with estate teams and end users we organise a seamless transition from the old building to the new one.

We believe our journey has only just started, on our mission to proudly build Britain’s future heritage.”
