Striving to be the best in the construction industry every year

We are proud of the prestigious industry awards we have won which recognise our Projects and the contribution to communities that we've helped build and improve.

Higgins strives to be the best at building communities and enhancing the lives of people who live and work within them. So we are delighted to win or be nominated for some of the UK's most prestigious awards in development and construction.
