Robertson is one of the largest independently owned construction, infrastructure and support services companies in the UK. We reached our 50th year of trading in better shape than ever, with a strong confirmed order book, diverse income streams and a dedicated, expert workforce.

Covering the entire built environment lifecycle, we operate throughout the UK, with offices across Scotland and the North and Midlands of England.

The group was established in 1966 by our Executive Chairman, Bill Robertson CBE. His strategy of creating a broad range of companies – run as separate, fully resourced entities – has ensured strong growth, value-creation and career opportunities, and has led to the comprehensive group of well-run companies that exists today. 

Robertson comprises 22 businesses, directly employing over 2200 people. These include regionally based construction companies, timber engineering, facilities management, a capital projects business dedicated to public sector partnerships, property development, regeneration, civil engineering, building services, and housebuilding for the private and affordable markets.

A strong entrepreneurial culture – built on the foundations of innovation, productivity and sustainability – permeates all of these businesses.

Although we encompass a variety of separate businesses and capabilities, we are one group with a common goal: working together to transform communities.

Developing positive relationships that endure long after each project has ended, we work in partnership with our clients to anticipate, understand and meet their needs. We use a knowledge-led approach to selecting and winning business, focusing our energy on where we can make a real difference to our clients.

In the private sphere, we have developed key strengths in the whisky, commercial, leisure and retail sectors, enjoying high levels of repeat business from world-renowned brands and family businesses alike. Robertson has a strong history of working with the public sector, with particular expertise in healthcare, education, regeneration and affordable housing. In recent years, we have excelled in the investment in and provision of assets, along with the servicing of these facilities, through long-term concessions. 

Our place on a number of major regional frameworks has put us in a good position to help our clients deliver essential, cost-effective and high-quality social infrastructure.
