Universal Group’s website is now live

Our new website is now live.

As part of our rebrand we have redesigned our whole website to reflect what we do best as a company. The website now includes detailed information of our capabilities and what we as a company can offer to any project.

On our website you will find detailed lists of piling works we are able to do, civils packages we can offer, a range of labour specialists as well as a catalogue of the plant we have available for hire. There’s contact information on each page to help direct any questions or queries you may have to the relevant person.

On each of our divisional pages you will now find a case study tab where you can view/download relevant case studies for the division.

We added an accreditations page for you to view/download our certificates and insurance schedule, we’ve also got a policies page which you can also view/download any of our current policies.

Here at Universal Piling and Construction we are re-branding our company from January 2018.  Formerly known as “Universal Piling and Construction” or “UPAC”, the new UNIVERSAL GROUP better reflects who we are as an organisation.  While our closest clients and supply partners know that our company provides a broad range of services including piling, civils, labour supply and plant hire – many more still associate our business as strictly a ‘Piling Company’.

Why are we rebranding our company?   

About a year ago, our leadership team sat together to discuss how our branding represented our ever growing business today and into the future.  Our previous company name and logo has served us well in establishing our position in the market place, however, we now feel that the diversity of our business offer has outgrown it and thus the concept of the rebrand to the Universal Group was born.

This is an exciting time for the Universal Group. The rebranding effort builds on many improvements we have made to our business in recent years. This continuing evolution builds a franchise whose value to you, as our clients and suppliers, increases by the day.

The things that will remain consistent, as they have been the foundation for our success to date are:

• Being a business with personality – our people truly are the core of our business.

• The relationships we have developed with our clients and suppliers – you have been part of our success to date and we hope you will be part of our future success.

• Our ethos to make our clients jobs as efficient as possible by taking the complication of multiple contractor interfaces away from the project.

From January 2018 you will see the new branding (as featured in this communication) across our website, correspondence, PPE and social media.
