Interserve Construction rebrands as Tilbury Douglas Construction

Cliff Lewis, group fleet director of the newly rebranded Tilbury Douglas Construction.

Interserve Construction Limited and Interserve Engineering Services Limited have announced their intention to formally rebrand as Tilbury Douglas Construction Limited and Tilbury Douglas Engineering Limited, marking a new era for the construction and engineering companies. 

The rebrand follows the sale of Interserve Group’s support services and learning and healthcare businesses last year. The business will continue to focus on delivering building, infrastructure, engineering and fit-out projects across the health, education, justice, government and infrastructure sectors, primarily for public sector clients.

Tilbury Douglas is a well-known historical name in the construction and engineering sector, with a lineage dating back to the London and Tilbury Lighterage Company Limited in 1884.

Paul Gandy, managing director for Tilbury Douglas, said: “We are delighted to announce our new brand, website and logo. Tilbury Douglas is a well-recognised historical brand in the construction sector and now represents our purpose of being a trusted construction and engineering partner, locally focussed and nationally strong, chosen for our commitment to customer needs. Our highly experienced teams are proud to be trusted partners to NHS Trusts, government departments, universities, local authorities and private sector customers.”

In 2020 the company won over 84 projects totalling £465m, including 28 healthcare projects and 16 new school projects, featuring nine SEND (Special Educational Needs) schools. The company was also called upon to deliver the Covid-19 NHS Nightingale Hospital in Birmingham, completing the first phase in just 13 days and continued to deliver its critical infrastructure works throughout the pandemic.

This year Tilbury Douglas expects to generate around £500m of revenue from a range of projects across England, Wales and Scotland.
