Group Purpose

The Clarison Group of companies provides innovative façade and envelope solutions to the UK and Irish markets and is a more sustainable alternative to using continental or global sub-contractors.

VALUE PROPOSITION STATEMENT

The Clarison Group draws on 154 years of combined industry experience to provide innovative façade and envelope solutions with lower risk, better quality, and sustainable delivery across the UK and Irish commercial, public, education, healthcare, industrial, retail and residential development sectors.

  • Lower Risk
    • Heritage:

      Our long-lasting heritage speaks for itself. With over a century of combined experience years across our brands, you can trust us to still be by your side tomorrow.

    • In-house Expertise:

      Keeping the design, manufacturing, and installation processes in-house allows us to maintain complete control, agility, and guarantee over the project from start to finish, resulting in earlier detection, quicker solutions, and fewer reworks.

    • Value Engineering:

      We provide solutions, not problems. Our value engineering capabilities enable considerable cost savings to ensure projects are delivered within budget.

  • Better Quality
    • Culture:

      Built on principles, driven by people. With a culture of quality built into our DNA, our people-driven organisation puts quality first across all aspects of the manufacturing and installation processes.

    • Recognition:

      Proven quality with world-renowned recognition across a range of ISO-9001, ISO-45001, ISO-14001, CWCT, CHAS, Achilles and Constructionline accreditations, we suit clients that are serious about quality.

    • Supply Chain:

      Quality is in the detail. Partnering with leading suppliers ensures only the highest-quality, most reliable and durable products are utilised across all supply chain stages.

  • Sustainably Delivered
    • Go Climate Positive Advocates:

      Serious about quality, serious about sustainability - we constantly strive to reduce our carbon footprint. Voluntarily measuring our carbon output allows us to implement action plans to meet our ambitious sustainability goals.

    • Low Carbon Aluminium:

      Implementing carbon budgets can be an effective way to drive sustainable projects. Our commitment to responsible sourcing and low-carbon alternatives offers cost-effective solutions for clients to reduce their carbon footprint.

    • CLC CO2NSTRUCT ZERO CARBON CHAMPION:

      We remain the only façade contractor champion from a group of nearly 100 members, a true testament to our sustainability commitments and ambitions of net zero carbon operations.
