Building on firm foundations
At its core, Woodmace is a specialist civil engineering and groundworks contractor but, in recent years, it has steadily expanded its skillset. Today, its services cover areas such as reinforced concrete structures, ground engineering and piling, soil stabilisation and diamond drilling and cutting.
The company’s recent growth has come about in part through acquisitions, which has enabled it to supply a broad range of services as a single package. “Woodmace provides a one-stop-shop for clients to deliver high-risk ground engineering packages and the superstructure within a construction project,” explains Director Russell Crate. “This is attractive to our clients as they can employ one company to carry out multiple tasks."
“The aim is to seek growth and development across the construction industry”
The company believes that its business is only as effective as its people and equipment. Throughout its history, Woodmace has continued to invest in both areas. That, Russell says, has helped during previous tough times as the company ensured “we were prepared”. The diversity of the group’s client base should ensure that the company can absorb any market slowdown in the future.
Over its 30-year history, Woodmace has built up experience and expertise in the industrial, commercial and retail sectors as well as housing, highways, renewable energy and high-security research facilities. The company’s relationships with the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Justice mean that it is well-positioned to benefit from recent government spending commitments.

“There will, as always, be new work streams within the construction industry,” says Russell, who is confident that Woodmace has everything it needs to thrive, whatever the market conditions. “Strategically the aim is to seek growth and development across various sectors within the construction industry.”
