Supply chain

VolkerWessels UK is committed to the highest ethical standards and no director or employee will contact the supply chain on procurement matters that are not ethically sound and appropriate. Please be aware that there are potentially third parties who may seek to imitate construction firm directors and employees who are outside of the control of the company. If you receive any correspondence that seems unusual please report it immediately to: reportfraud@volkerwessels.co.uk.

Our supply chain is an integral part of VolkerWessels UK's commitment to offering clients a quality service. We establish mutually rewarding, ongoing relationships with our suppliers and subcontractors, and today work with many organisations where we have a long and successful history of cooperation. VolkerWessels UK operates a policy of prompt payment to agreed terms.

Our comprehensive database, available across the group, includes key management and performance data as well as relevant technical and financial documents to enable us to fully engage with our supply chain partners for long term mutual benefit. The VolkerWessels UK companies are VolkerFitzpatrick, VolkerRail, VolkerStevin, VolkerHighways, and VolkerLaser.

We welcome new partners, as we grow organically and develop new markets in the UK. The group actively supports the use of local workforces and Small and Medium Enterprises where practically possible. The Supply Chain Trades Required List in the key documents section below details the subcontract trades and supplier categories we currently require in the respective operating businesses. If your trade or category is not listed, you may still apply, but your application will be subject to additional review.

Subcontractors will not be required to join CAS to tender work - only to secure work. Note that Constructionline are our VWUK on-boarding partner, meaning the link below shall be used for all new organisation applications.

You need to ensure you maintain a verified profile with Constructionline Gold/CAS, or by one of the other providers, that are accrediting to the Common Assessment Standard and ask for your data to be shared with Constructionline, meaning you will not need to undertake an additional assessment.
