Tarmac is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions company.
The contracting division of the business offers services and expert knowledge around infrastructure, motorways, roads, car parks, footpaths, sports facilities, stadiums and runways.
Every year Tarmac Contracting install more than 3.5 million tonnes of asphalt for a diverse range of contracts, from the resurfacing of motorways, roads and pathways, to the construction of car parks and velodromes. In the process Tarmac responsibly dispose of over one million tonnes of road arisings. Much of this is recycled either off-site by a nationwide network of asphalt plants or by utilising the industry leading ULTIFOAM system, which enables up to 95 per cent of all road arisings to be recycled and reused onsite quickly and efficiently.
With years of experience working on major contracts for Highways England, local authorities and clients from the private sector, Tarmac offer a complete range of highways maintenance services, all of which can be assessed individually or as an end-to-end package. These range from the maintenance of roads and associated assets, including street lighting, signage and fencing, right through to the design and implementation of traffic management systems, the provision of emergency response, grass cutting and winter maintenance.
Tarmac Contracting undertakes around 5,000 individual contracts per annum throughout the UK, varying in size and scope from minor resurfacing schemes to large-scale reconstruction projects. Early involvement with supply chain partners enables any potential problems to be solved before they occur, whilst direct early involvement with internal management and technical teams results in greater innovation, improved risk management and safer, more affordable solutions.
