Upgrading its own head office to an eco-sustainable site complete with rainwater harvesting and biomass wood pellet heating is one of the latest projects undertaken by GRAHAM. The Northern Ireland construction firm’s work includes a range of building and civil engineering in Scotland as part of the government’s public private partnership (PPP) initiative. Its core business, however, remains construction, facilities maintenance and highways management. Under executive chairman Michael Graham sales reached £216.1m in 2008.
