Cumbria’s DSD Construction awarded National Highways framework

Carlisle civil engineering and infrastructure contractor, DSD Construction, has won two regional lots on National Highways’ £1.3 billion, five-year Pavement Delivery Framework

Organic development leads growth This success is testament to the commitment from the Nugent family in developing DSD Construction over the last three decades as a leading, national civil engineering and infrastructure contractor. The business is operated from its Carlisle-based Head Office, a purpose-built facility on Kingmoor Park that opened in 2019. It also has operating centres in both Whitehaven and Sellafield (Cumbria) and Thirsk (North Yorkshire). As an Investor in People, organic development has created a positive culture where retention of staff remains high. The senior management team has a combined experience of over 150 years. A simple and clear mission has underpinned the Company’s growth: to deliver safe, sustainable high-quality projects and services.

The core of the business integrates civil engineering and surfacing activities with over 90% of the works being delivered in-house by the 150 directly employed staff. The company also operates a wholly owned and self-maintained fleet of plant and equipment. A commitment to ‘net zero’ stems from the Company’s focus on carbon reduction through high recycling rates using in-situ and ex-situ recycling technologies, recycled plastic bitumen replacement and recent graphene infusion trials.
