Darwin Group Ltd specialise in the fast track construction of education projects using sustainable modern methods of construction. Our typical project values range between £600,000 to over £10 million.
We provide our clients with a truly unique turnkey service covering all elements of the design, planning and construction activities throughout all of the stages as defined within RIBA using our own in house team of directly employed designers, architects, town planners and construction professionals. This provides a swift, cost effective and seamless service to our clients.
Darwin Group Ltd was founded in 2006 by the Pierce family. Their experience in the industry now spans five decades. Husband and wife team Richard and Lesley along with three of their six children, Richard Jnr, Jim and Charles work full time for the company.
Over one hundred directly employed specialist construction staff now operate from our head office in the heart of the UK supporting a turnover of £30 million.
There is a high level of staff retention and loyalty within the company, and different ideas, skills and approaches are examined and adopted where sensible. This approach of not being afraid to do things differently from the norm has spawned systems and techniques that have allowed us to redefine what is realistically achievable within tight timescales and budgets.
Supporting the Community
Darwin Group is fast becoming a major presence in local and national supply chains, and we take our corporate responsibility to Britain seriously. Supporting the community is about more than just donations; it is about being a truly British company, being owned wholly in the UK and not by foreign holding companies, paying full UK tax on profits and not used to trade tax losses into, and by carrying out all manufacturing and construction processes at our head offices in the Midlands. We are proud of what we do and do not attempt to dodge our responsibility through clever accounting or tax havens during this time of financial crisis.
We take our local community responsibilities seriously, and where possible, we make a significant investment in our local community investment programmes. There is often no business benefit to local sponsorship, but we try to support our local community projects with equipment and financial assistance wherever possible. Some of the current causes we are proud to support are:
