Social Value

Delivering Social Value
We are devoted to contributing to local communities and are passionate about making a positive difference across all the areas in which we work. As a responsible business social value is embedded throughout our company and forms an integral part of every project we deliver. The Higgins ethos is Community at the Core of Construction, and this is reflected in our proactive approach to the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012.

Higgins have committed to utilising the Social Value Portal, Themes, Outcomes and Measures methodology as a minimum across all of our project. This allows us to benchmark performance and drive continuous improvement and benefit back to our clients and communities.

We are committed to building better, stronger, safer and more sustainable communities and work collaboratively with our clients to achieve this through the lifespan of any project.

Our social value agenda focuses on:

  • Supporting COVID-19 recovery
  • Tackling economic inequality
  • Fighting climate change
  • Equal Opportunity
  • Wellbeing

The aim for all our projects is to empower communities and to leave lasting legacy through our initiatives, which continue to generate benefit for local people beyond the contract term. With a dedicated team and a focus on quality, we take an individualistic approach enabling us to consistently help change people’s lives for the better.
