Over the years, stereotypes surrounding the construction industry have grown with the idea that it is solely a place for men performing hard laborious manual jobs, with little scope for highly skilled specialists. We are proactively working to change this image, through innovation and collaboration to show that our industry is important to society, creative, progressive, fun and rewarding.
Our Sustainability Vision contains five categories of focus to bring about changes that will improve the world we live and work in.
Our WJ Thinking Community initiative is about inspiring as many lives as possible within the communities in which we live and work.
