Robust balance sheet

Civil engineering and construction businesses can face various risk factors. Having a strong balance sheet allows Nexus to both overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities.
Chronic undersupply of housing in the UK

Chronic undersupply of housing in the UK

A recovery in the housebuilding sector is inevitable as the country continues to face a chronic undersupply of good-quality affordable housing. A return to the long-term growth trend will bring a significant increase in demand for Tamdown’s services, at the leading edge of the market upturn.


Our purpose is ‘Building Bright Futures’ and, with this in mind, we consider our impact on all our stakeholders – from our people and supply chain through to society in general.
