As a family business, McGowan Environmental Engineering have continued to grow organically and are fully committed to nurturing, training and developing our workforce. Based in the UK’s largest National Park, we have grown to become a valued local employer where the majority of our team live in the surrounding rural area.
We currently employ over 55 full-time staff and are fortunate to have a range of experienced personnel from both the civil and environmental engineering industries. While we invest in young people and offer modern apprenticeships, we also offer opportunities for promotion and career development throughout the company.
We offer a diverse range of specialised civil and environmental engineering services to a wide portfolio of clients across the UK & Ireland, where project values vary from £20k to £6m. Our underlying focus is to deliver quality and value, where we can earn trust and develop longer-term, mutually beneficial working relationships. Every client and project is different, which is why we offer bespoke solutions with a tailored service offering, delivered by a dedicated and skilled project team. We respect our clients and the environment, taking great pride in who we are, what we do and how we do it.
McGowan Environmental Engineering is fully committed to providing a safe working environment for our people and the public. We continue to invest time and money in Health & Safety and have bolstered our in-house team in recent years, to help ensure all safety and quality standards are fully recognised and embedded across the company. We operate an Integrated Management System and our processes, procedures and policies are continually reviewed to ensure compliance with legislation and the achievement of industry-recognised accreditation standards. We are proud of our Health & Safety performance and track-record across all operations.
We pride ourselves on being Naturally Different through our environmentally sensitive and sympathetic approach. Our projects are often located in fragile and protected environments and through positive reinstatement we always strive to minimise any impact, increase biodiversity and restore natural habitats.
Ross McGowan recognised a need for a civil engineering company which paid more attention to minimising the impact of construction projects in the rural environment. In 2009 he started McGowan Environmental Engineering and from day one, the ethos and commitment has always been about quality and caring.
We have experienced continued growth and development since 2009 and the company’s success has been underpinned by the addition of experienced and like-minded industry professionals. Our management team has a wealth of experience across the civil and environmental engineering industries.
Our processes, procedures and policies are continually reviewed to ensure compliance with legislation and the achievement of industry-recognised accreditation standards.
