Purpose and values



We’re united across all of our businesses by our core purpose:


Creating great places today, to build a better tomorrow.


Our purpose challenges us and everyone who works with and for Henry Boot to deliver to the highest possible standards. If we do, we’ll create healthy, sustainable and attractive places that make a positive contribution to our communities – the sorts of places that generate long-term social and economic value, and that we can be proud of. We’ve been true to our purpose since we were founded in 1886. It’s part of who we are.

Do the right thing

We’ve always been true to our word. We’re experts who use our knowledge to do the right thing (not just the easiest thing). To think ahead. Provide solutions. Deliver the highest standards, the best result, the fairest terms – and to commit to delivering well tomorrow, not just today.

Be open to change

We’ve been around since 1886 for one reason: we’re able to adapt to a fast-changing world. That means we seek out new opportunities. We evolve and we change. Set new targets. We actively listen, learning from the ground up – and always ask, what can we do better?
