Our Approach

The core values instilled by Josie on the very day his tunnelling business was born remain deeply rooted in the company's DNA today. The Group's core family values of safety above anything else, integrity and hard work are embodied by everyone working for Joseph Gallagher. Regardless of your job title, whether you work on site or how long you've served the business - our people help champion these values and build on our success.

A set of behavioural values go hand in hand with the core values to help our people understand what is expected of them and how they can help drive the Group's award winning cultural safety and behavioural programme (LIFE) in the workplace.

We have passionate teams across all our functional areas, pushing boundaries, improving standards and delivering the high standards of workmanship across our projects whilst respecting the communities in which we work.

We truly care about every project that we work on no matter of its size. Our people will always endeavour to go the extra mile to complete projects on time without compromising the quality and safety of the team, whilst ensuring clients/project partners are pleased with the end result and are keen to work with us again.

Every project and challenge we undertake is driven by sustainability, more so now than ever before. There is always more we can do to lessen our impact on the environment and the planet’s resources – but we’re taking positive steps to help reduce our carbon footprint. By working with our clients and supply chain, we’re reducing material use and landfill waste and increasing recycling opportunities – and we're not stopping there!

We’re trialling new sustainable and innovative methods, designs and products with a lower or zero carbon footprint with high-recycled content and we recently acquired our ISO50001 Energy Management accreditation.
