About us

Carillion is one of the UK’s leading integrated support services companies, with a substantial portfolio of Public Private Partnership projects, extensive construction capabilities and a sector-leading ability to deliver sustainable solutions.


We have a track record of delivering sustainable, cost-effective solutions for our customers safely and of creating positive legacies for the communities where we work and live. Whether it is providing facilities management services for over 100,000 buildings, the management and maintenance of transport and utility networks or delivering award-winning cultural, residential, commercial or community developments – we strive to deliver high-quality services that make a positive difference to people and communities.

We have continued to respond decisively to challenging market conditions to create a leaner, stronger business, capable of delivering growth over the medium term. As well as rescaling some of our existing businesses to ensure they are aligned in size to their markets, we have strengthened our positions in markets that offer opportunities for growth. Strong corporate governance, together with rigorous risk management processes and our efficient central operating platform, help us to deliver the most complex projects successfully.

We are a trusted partner when trust matters most. We provide mission-critical facilities management services to public and private sector customers, notably in the health, defence, secure accommodation, financial services and energy sectors. We keep transport and utility networks operating 24/7 and deliver new hospitals, schools, roads, railways and other landmark buildings and structures. We build long-term partnerships based on delivering value for money services that our customers know they can rely on.
