Our People, Our Foundations


A growing presence in the construction, mechanical and electrical services, property investment and pressure testing sectors, Metnor Group is experienced at working in the built environment. To complement its growth, the company has expanded its divisions’ teams, with a real focus on creating a culture of collaboration to maintain its success. 

The lifeblood to any business is its people and as well as creating progression paths and developing a mentoring structure, Metnor has also brought in external experts to deliver employee workshops to inspire, engage and optimise its teams.

“Investing in our people is such an important part of what we do – and in a fast-paced industry like ours, identifying and managing behaviours within the team is vital to accelerating performance,” says David Laidlaw, commercial director at Metnor Construction Ltd.
