Who we are

We renew and maintain the nation’s vital infrastructure

VolkerStevin is an industry-leading engineering business. We are part of VolkerWessels UK which employs over 3,600 people with annual revenue in excess of £1bn.

This provides our business with financial resilience, offers fantastic and wide-reaching development opportunities for our people, and enables us to drive innovation and value for our clients by investing in the latest technology. We are working to bring tomorrow into today by harnessing digital solutions that allow us to work better, faster and smarter. 

We empower our people to innovate and drive sustainable and responsible change. Our talented and diverse workforce use their imagination, creativity and ‘can-do’ attitude to overcome complex engineering challenges and deliver projects with certainty.

We have delivered a lasting and positive legacy up and down the country.


This includes highly visible and iconic structures and developments such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge; a new jetty at Blackfriars Bridge on the River Thames; coastal defences and promenades at numerous locations across the country; maintenance and improvement works so that the Thames Barrier can continue protecting central London from storm surges; and work at ports – notably the flagship Western Docks development in Dover.

Our work also includes the unseen but vital infrastructure such as the miles of underground cables to connect wind farms to the grid; the upgrades to water and wastewater networks; the flood defences to protect homeowners and allow local authorities and businesses to invest with confidence; and the new navy jetties and military facilities to enable our armed forces to operate effectively.

We take great pride in the high quality work we deliver. Read more about our projects here.


As well as a Head Office in Preston, VolkerStevin operates throughout the UK, using the wider network of VolkerWessels UK offices and sites available across the group.
