We have a wealth of experience in delivering high-quality projects for new builds, extensions and refurbishments within schools, police stations, prisons and hospitals.
Due to the nature and purpose of the buildings, the construction works are often undertaken within live environments – however we’re always empathetic to the needs of the users during the entire construction process.
Clients of note include Suffolk Police Headquarters and working alongside Ipswich Borough Council, Suffolk County Council, Southend-on-Sea County Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, The Fire Service and the NHS Trust.

Longstanton Passenger Transport Centre, Cambridge
Working to an extremely tight deadline (20 weeks from start to finish), the Longstanton Passenger Transport Centre is one of the most sustainable buildings that we have ever constructed.
The design had to incorporate a highly visible exhibition and learning facility, with sustainable building techniques and materials in evidence. Luckily this is an area in which we have over 20 years of experience and by using gluelamb frames, soft wood source, solar UV panels and a Ground Source heat pump, the project easily met the requirements.
Using local, renewable materials with low levels of embedded carbon, the Longstanton building even became the first in the country to using Hempbuild, a natural product with zero carbon outlay. Hempbuild is so effective that the conventional heating system will only need to be used in extreme weather temperatures.
Since completion the building has been rated as ‘excellent’ by the Building Research Establishment (the independent body who assess environmentally friendly construction) and is only the fourth in the East of England to have achieved the ‘excellent’ rating for environmental efficiency.
Burwell Fire & Community Rescue Station, Cambridgeshire
Opened in last year, Burwell Fire & Community Station underwent a significant improvement on a project that saw SEH French operating as the main contractors.
On-call firefighters are required to train for two hours every week and the new site now allows for this, rather than travelling to another location in Cambridgeshire. The site also house facilities for the community.
The exterior of the building is constructed from brickwork and cladding. The garages for the fire engines were created using steel frames, and the bricks used were locally sourced ‘Burwell white bricks’.
