A tech-enabled print, merchandise and distribution solution for multi-site collateral
Established in 2001, Winvic is a multidisciplinary main contractor based in the UK that delivers construction projects on a national scale for blue-chip clients. Beyond being known as the UK’s leading ‘shed specialist’ delivering millions of square metres of storage for the industrial and distribution sector, Winvic also delivers student accommodation; earthworks and infrastructure for civil engineering projects; and education, retail and leisure developments.
Winvic has constructed 75+ million square feet of industrial space and developed 7,000+ multi-bed rooms, 3,000+ acres of significant sites, and 30+ kilometres of highway work. These projects include 6 Zero Carbon buildings and 6 WELL-ready projects. Since 2013, the business has achieved over 400% growth and turnover is now £800+ million.
Maintaining a laser focus on health and safety compliance and best practice approaches is integral to the ‘Winvic Way’ – Winvic’s operational excellence and continual improvement ethos.
