We take health & safety very seriously with leadership as the cornerstone of our approach to safety management. We’ve made a commitment to constantly raise standards of health & safety not only within Ashe but by helping to spread our health & safety culture across our supply chain. We want to change behaviours so that everyone who has any contact with our operations whether they be a member of staff or a member of the public can be confident that they will get home in one piece.

We know the construction industry is responsible for having a huge impact on the environment and that’s why Ashe has made a pledge to make a difference. We promise to operate in the most environmentally-efficient way we can. We reduce, re-use, recycle and recover where ever we can and only dispose of waste as a last resort. Through the use of innovation and using local suppliers and services, we reduce our impacts.
We review our processes and constantly strive to improve the way we work through thinking smart to design environmental best practice into everything we do.
Our commitment to innovation isn’t just about finding new ways to replace old methods of construction. It’s about finding techniques that help us to drive improvements in safety on our sites, and it’s about making our business and our industry truly sustainable.
We encourage everyone in our business, whatever their role, to play a part in our commitment to innovation. From investing in ‘paperless’ information technology, which helps our supply chain and clients to be more efficient, to pioneering the use of modular building systems to reduce waste and energy use.
We think smart to design innovation into every stage of our operations.
Many of our customers return to us again, and again, because they say Ashe is different. We give them a positive experience of the construction process. We believe this is down to our people. It’s not just because we’re skilled and knowledgeable, but we’re open and enthusiastic too. We value each other and ensure our people receive the career development and appreciation they all deserve because they are central to our success. We employ talented people and encourage them to pursue their career ambitions.
We believe in teamwork, and we’re always open to fresh ideas and new initiatives because improving the way we do things is our priority.
There’s a unique culture at Ashe which stems from our open and informal style of management. We are a dynamic team, respectful and supportive of each other. Ashe is an Investor in People.
We want to run a successful business and we want to do it the right way. We set high standards for ourselves and the people we work with. We employ talented people and develop their potential so we enhance their skills and knowledge. We act collectively as a team, giving everyone a voice, and a rewarding career.
We want to make continuous improvement in all areas of our business. This means acting responsibly with regard to health and safety, the environment and the communities in which we operate. We act with integrity and professionalism and have a culture of ‘right first time’.
We focus on our customers’ needs and aim for each project to be completed on time, on budget, free of any defects, safely and handed over to a delighted client.
The “Ashe Force” supply chain is a vital part of everything we do. We have projects spread throughout the midlands and south east of England serviced by an experienced and dedicated supply chain which helps us to deliver efficiency benefits to all our partners. We use the knowledge and skills of a fully integrated local supply chain which includes sub-contractors, suppliers and consultants. We share our experiences, initiatives and the lessons learned from all of our collaborative partnerships.
We have committed to helping the communities in which we work through tender opportunities, training and environmental initiatives with assistance from local support agencies.
