Morgan Est

Morgan Est offers a wide range of project opportunities in every sector of the civil engineering industry

Morgan Est is a UK-based provider of infrastructure services that specialises in designing and delivering complex engineering projects across a range of sectors. The company’s roots can be traced back to the founding of the Miller Group in 1934, as Morgan Est was born out of the acquisition of Miller Civil Engineering Services in 2001 by Morgan Sindall - one of the UK’s top 10 construction groups.

In 2002, Morgan Est entered the utility market, with the acquisition of Pipeline Constructors, and in 2006 entered the rail market when it acquired Gleeson MCL. In July 2007 the company bought the civil engineering business of Amec DPS, followed by Elec Track Installations (ETI) in January of this year, taking its employee numbers to over 4,500.

Morgan Est is now organised into five main business streams, which work across the supply chain and through the full project life cycle. The businesses often work together to provide specialist teams to deliver highly integrated, complex, sustainable solutions. The five business streams are:

  • Infrastructure Projects – specialising in the complex projects in the roads, water and energy sectors.

  • Capital Projects – specialising in complex projects in the air and rail sectors.

  • Tunnelling – Morgan Est is the UK’s leading tunnelling contractor, and has in-house piling, design and precast capabilities.

  • Utilities – providing network solutions in the water, gas and electricity sectors.

  • Programme Management – providing project, programme and integration management consultancy services for clients through the lifecycle of large capital investment programmes.

The company’s portfolio includes some of the UK’s highest profile infrastructure projects, including the Upper Forth Crossing at Kincardine, Heathrow Terminal Five, Kings Cross and the Channel Tunnel.

Morgan Est also works in long-term framework arrangements in the utilities, rail and infrastructure sectors, and is committed to developing "early solutions together" by working as a team with clients and partners.
