Special Projects

Established in 1992, SDC Special Projects was set up to undertake works of a smaller, more specialist nature. The idea was to create a division with the ability to provide the skills and experience of a large contractor but on smaller scale projects, typically ranging from £50,000 to £3,000,000.

Despite being part of the SDC Group, Special Projects acts as an autonomous division with its own dedicated team of Construction Managers, Estimators and Quantity Surveyors, along with highly skilled Site Operatives. The division is led by a combination of Gary Wykes (Board Director) and Graham Staughton (General Manager), who have a combined history of 66 years at SDC. Running Special Projects as a standalone division under the umbrella of SDC means the department has access to all the benefits of a large contractor (in-house H&S, Quality, M&E, Design and BIM), without the same overheads. This business model has proven to be extremely successful, with turnover rising from £100,000 to £25,000,000 over the past twenty-five years.

This sustained growth has enabled Special Projects to develop a highly diversified portfolio spanning across a variety of sectors, including education, commercial, automotive, leisure, retail, healthcare, listed buildings and refurbishments. Many of the schemes are of a complex nature with requirements, such as fast-paced delivery, challenging site logistics or working in an operational facility. 

Special Projects is also home to SDC’s Maintenance (planned and reactive) and Groundworks divisions.
