Company strategy  

Andrew Scott is a family-owned construction and civil engineering company established in 1870. 

“To de-risk our supply chain disruptions, we have increasingly looked to strengthen our local supply chains in Wales, creating stronger local economic prosperity resulting in local deliveries and smaller carbon footprint,” said the contractor.  

Adding: “The company’s strategy is very much focused on its core strengths and will continue to target negotiated work, two-stage tenders and ECI projects. Success on major frameworks is providing excellent opportunities and we remain focused on projects in niche sectors such as manufacturing, education and health.”
