Morrisroe Ltd

About us

Morrisroe operates in the high-end UK construction market and can deliver projects of great complexity and scale.  It is an engineer-led and multi-disciplinary contractor with specialist design capability, described more commonly in the industry as a construction ‘specialist’.

Our spearhead specialist services include Demolition, Piling, Structures, Joinery and Carpentry.  These services are supported by in-house plant, haulage, and post tensioning divisions.

A distinguishing aspect to our business is our partnership with design and engineering practice, Kingscote Design Limited, which provides both permanent and temporary works design services on all Morrisroe projects and wide-ranging construction engineering support to project teams.  Kingscote Design is now playing a central role in developing low concrete carbon solutions alongside other value engineering solutions in the preconstruction stages.

We have always delivered stand-alone specialist services, but we are also one of a small handful of specialist trade contractors able to ‘self-deliver’ large and specialist packages of works to the London and Birmingham markets.  Under our integrated self-delivery model, we are proving to be a contractor of choice for value-led project delivery.

Flagship schemes include Minerva House – London Bridge, the client is Great Portland Estates.  Other high-end projects include London Aquatic Centre, Tottenham Hotspur Football Stadium, One Blackfriars, The Library of Birmingham, and 40 Leadenhall.  More recently, we have delivered integrated projects such as 2/3 Finsbury Avenue, Blossom Street and One Broadgate all close to Liverpool Street Railway Station.

Elephant and Castle Town Centre is a large scale  project – ECTC builds on a pre-existing community space, offering residents and visitors an inclusive experience in a reimagined environment. Almost 500 new homes, a brand-new tube station and a new campus for London College of Communication UAL make up this vibrant development. The new integrated ticket hall links both Northern and Bakerloo lines and is housed in a deep basement construction.

Why work here?

The UK’s construction industry has always faced worker shortages, with several roles now appearing on the government’s shortage occupation list.  Part of the concern is that the construction sector is not as attractive to many looking for employment, as industries such as automotive or aerospace sectors, and is still viewed as very ‘traditional’ in terms of methodology, skills and culture.  The number of new younger people coming into the industry is at its lowest for many years.

People are at the heart of our business and operations.  Our approach to communities and our ability to support our clients in this area over many years is now shaping our reputation and credibility in the industry.  We are now involved on schemes where social value and community engagement are paramount.

Morrisroe are committed to ensuring our projects have a positive impact on the local community. We have an inclusive and supportive recruitment approach, and we attend several careers fairs each year to promote careers, work opportunities and apprenticeships in our business. 

Recently two apprentices, admitted that the perception of the construction industry was broadly the same; that for the most part we are seen as only welcoming one archetype of person.  However, the reality is very different, and the apprentices said, it was “refreshing” and “a huge relief” to see the diversity that exists on Morrisroe sites.

Another said, “Of course, it is a male-dominated industry, “But it’s so diverse in terms of culture, race and really seeing the change in ratio of male to female engineers.  The culture is changing in other ways, too, with apprentices bringing their own skills and knowledge to the table and more experienced staff giving them opportunities to share.

The demand for differing skills brings the prospect for the sector to modernise.  There are many industry initiatives designed to attract people to our sector, Build UK’s Open Doors is one, and it begins this March, running from 18th to 23rd.

Come and in and join us for a few hours, you will see the exciting and progressive works that are happening at our Minerva House project, where both construction and deconstruction is in process; a 5-minute walk from London Bridge railway station.

Also, we are excited to show you around Elephant and Castle Town Centre project, which is the heart of the community in a sought after Zone 1 location. ECTC project will provide enhanced facilities, high quality public realm and a new and upgraded entrance to the underground transport system via the Northern Line ticket hall.
