About Us

S9 Construction Ltd was established in 2017 and has quickly developed into a construction company that operates across three complementary sectors:

  • civil engineering & groundworks
  • residential developments
  • renewables

The business is led by a highly experienced management team with over 35+ years in the industry, and blended with ambitious youthful staff. This combination is helping fuel our company’s year-on-year growth.

This is complimented by a well-trained and motivated workforce, together with strong supply chain relationships that have been nurtured over the years – helping deliver projects safely, on-time and within budget.

We understand the everyday challenges that complex construction projects bring and so pride ourselves in being able to foresee these challenges and solve them with not only innovative solutions, but also tried and tested methods that have stood the test of time. We still enjoy the daily challenges and very much believe that it is a very rewarding industry.
