A privately owned building company that was established over 35 years ago and has developed into a well-respected, and trusted general building contractor that specialises in providing a range of building services to a variety of public sector and commercial clients located in Greater London and the Home Counties.
Quality is driven throughout the company by senior management through to site operatives. We hold quality assurance and environmental standards ISO9001 and ISO14001, which means that all of our processes are monitored and audited throughout the project lifetime to ensure that works are carried out in accordance with the specification and agreed standards.
One of G&L’s great assets is the strength and depth of our supply chain. We are able to deliver certainty, expertise, value for money and most importantly continued trust. Over the years we have built many long-standing relationships amongst our suppliers whose own ethos’s embody those of G&L.
We have been able to align many of our supply partners in tandem so that both us and they benefit from an enhanced relationship that serves both customer and client.
Adhering to our CSR, we aim to work with locally sourced suppliers so that we can add-value to the local economy and provide opportunity in social enterprise. We regularly hold supplier days when we take on major contracts or Frameworks.
Part of our offering is to give sub-contractors the opportunity to better their standards of safety and skillset on site through the training we are able to provide. Some of our sub-contractors have been with us since inception, and as such we see them as an extension of G&L. We therefore expect each of them to emit the same level of professionalism and standard that each G&L employee maintains.
For new suppliers or contractors wanting to work with us they have to pass our strict vetting and selection process. This process qualifies their credentials and experience, allowing us to ascertain whether they are fit to work under the G&L banner. We pay and treat our supply chain partners the same as we treat our own – this is why we demand such high quality and consistency. We continuously benchmark our partners to quantify this level of quality to ensure we offer the best products and rates for our clients.
