Best Highways Infrastructure Construction & Maintenance Company 2024 Following M Group Services’ mission statement of ‘delivering what we promise’, Milestone Infrastructure is a highways maintenance business which provides award-winning essential transport infrastructure solutions across the UK. From highways maintenance to street lighting and civil engineering projects, the business has built a reputation for delivering excellence. An important element of Milestone’s approach is collaboration. The company works with its clients and supply chain partners to identify common goals and work in tandem to achieve exceptional results. Within its Oxfordshire contract, Milestone has developed the Framework Alliance Contract (FAC) that unites client, contractor, and supply chain to optimise cost savings and carbon reduction. These effective partnerships ensure better services for the public and enable Milestone, its clients and supply chain to forge new ways of resolving challenges such as the impacts of climate change and aging transport infrastructure. Milestone’s Innovation Hub is designed to equip its teams with the necessary skills to consider possibilities and support the preparation of business cases for new ideas. The business is also actively involved in the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) and encourages employees to submit suggestions for innovation improvements and rewarding those that do with enhanced recognition if the idea is implemented successfully. Milestone is committed to minimising the environmental impact of its work. In 2023, the business achieved accreditation to the PAS 2080 carbon management standard, reflecting the low carbon work taking place across Milestone, as well as the ongoing collaboration with clients and the supply chain to make significant progress against our joint carbon reduction targets. In addition, Milestone has onboarded 25 in-house environmental specialists, each contributing to the collective’s proactive implementation of its award-winning environmental strategy. Delivering social value is another critical focus for Milestone. Ensuring that local SMEs form a major part of the service delivery model for its clients is a central facet of Milestone’s approach, with the goal of providing smaller businesses with the ability to develop and grow themselves, while still assisting others in the process. This further aligns with one of Milestone’s key contributions to the industry – one that sees it investing some of its incentivised profit into funding and trialling an SME Development Programme for three of its key SMEs. As part of this programme, , the business has offered in-depth expertise to several key SMEs, including training, mentoring and helping them to deliver development action plans. Milestone has fostered an environment that not only empowers its people, but also extends its support to others within the industry. Milestone values collaboration, innovation, carbon reduction and social value to drive positive change across the UK’s transport infrastructure industry. As such, we’re eager to see where this accolade takes the business as we move through 2024. Contact: Richard Lovewell Company: Milestone Infrastructure Ltd Web Address:
