Gilbert-Ash is an award-winning UK construction and fit-out contractor. The company takes a holistic approach to construction, viewing each building as a single entity, rather than an assembly of packages. What makes them different? They treat each building as one of a kind and we really ‘live’ each project with our clients, because we believe great teams create great buildings.
