Why clients work with the Toureen Group

One of the benefits of contracting with any of the divisions, is that clients automatically access the Group's wider, in-house expertise. This is particularly beneficial when unexpected project complications arise. Clients have noted that unlike working with a single discipline contractor:

  • value engineering solutions are more innovative because of the influence and exposure to different sectors,
  • construction programmes avoid delay through more resilience to unforeseen challenges and complications,
  • plant and material purchasing costs are more competitive due to the Toureen Group's greater buying power.
