Our commitment, Your assurance

At Carney, a commitment to sustainable and safe working practices forms the foundation of our pledge to our people, clients and partners.

Whether it’s our dedication to health and safety through rigorous policies and on-site training, or our commitment to sustainability, integrated throughout our practices - you can be assured that your project's success is fortified by our proven practices and dedication.

Health & Safety

At Carney, our commitment to health and safety goes beyond industry norms. We create environments where the well-being of our teams, partners, community, and environment is paramount. With a dedicated in-house Health & Safety team, we are able to constantly monitor and improve upon our on-site procedures to the benefit of our staff and the project delivery.

We have a wealth of experience delivering complex large-scale infrastructure and groundworks projects, often in challenging and variable situations. This has included construction works alongside live railway; working airside at the busiest airport in the UK; and on the edge of a wild and ever-changing coastal environment.

Great construction starts with a focus on safety.
It's not just policy; it's the cornerstone that keeps
our team safe and our projects on track.


Comprehensive Health & Safety Training

A well-trained workforce is vital to maintaining our high health and safety standards.

Our comprehensive training programs go beyond the legal requirements to ensure our personnel are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to identify potential hazards, implement preventive measures, and respond effectively in the case of any unexpected events or emergencies.

This foundation is built upon with a program of ongoing learning and proactive improvement of standards and processes.

Open communication and reporting

We have established a culture of open communication and collaboration across all aspects of the work we carry out.

This enables our dedicated in-house Health & Safety team to work with all operatives to report on and quickly fix any safety concerns.

Our real-time reporting and investigation feeds back into our program of training and allows us to continuously improve our practices.

At Carney every project is executed with the utmost consideration for the well-being of our teams, partners, community and environment. 


No job is too important, or schedule too tight, to ignore safety

Carney is committed to maintaining a sustainable environment on all of our projects. Whether it's the materials we use, our waste disposal process or our supply chain, Carney is dedicated to helping to build a better future for everyone.

We also believe, that when it comes to sustainability; action speaks louder than words.

That's why we're undertaking specific endeavours designed to make a positive impact on the future of our industry, providing assurance to our stakeholders that we take sustainability as seriously as they do.

The Green Building Initiative

Through this program, we strive to minimise our carbon footprint while maximising energy efficiency in all our projects.

  • Innovation in sustainable materials
    Working with our operatives and our supply chain, we bring the latest innovations in techniques and construction materials to all our projects.
  • Waste reduction and recycling
    Tackling this key issue is a part of every day project management for our teams, liaising with the whole spectrum of contractors and partners that come together for a project and minimising the environmental impact of our work.
  • Water conservation
    We emphasis water-efficient practices, including the use of low-flow fixtures, rainwater harvesting systems, and water-efficient landscaping, to reduce water consumption during delivery.
  • Sustainable site development
    Using our decades of experience, we will work directly with councils, government and project leaders to advise on sustainable practices that minimise a projects impact on the natural environment.

Partnerships and community engagement

Our commitment to collaboration and sustainability go well beyond the construction site. We actively seek partnerships with local organisations and clubs to drive social and environmental initiatives.

Key engagements

  • Collaborating with local non-profit organisations to support school development projects and community development initiatives.
