General Build

We support major house builders and construction companies as well as regional contractors and smaller general builders.

We take pride in the quality of service we deliver, which in turn is supported by a strong site presence to ensure all our clients and temporary workers are happy. We enjoy an 87% customer retention rate which obviously shows we are getting it right most of the time. Harpers faces up to any issues and our consultants are always prepared to take calls from clients and temporary workers.

Civil Engineering (inc. Groundworks)

We ensure that every groundworker is exactly that (and not a labourer pretending to have all the correct skill sets). Our in-house systems allow us to directly connect to the CSCS to immediately validate workers’ cards to determine their true abilities. We understand the demands placed on gangers when drivers won’t get out of the cab to help out, and stay very close to our customers by visiting sites weekly.

Clients have included:
Churngold Construction, BCL Groundworks, Ingenium Civil Engineering, Tercon, MKR Construction Projects, B&A Group/

Mechanical & Electrical

Harpers acted as one of the major suppliers of both mechanical and electrical labour involved in the major refurbishment of the Claverton Down campus at Bath University. We have the expertise to understand the gulf between light scale commercial work and the demands placed on workers within the heavy industrial sector.

Clients have included:
AGM Services, Waterlip Electrical Contracting, Source Electrical

Modular Build

Managing Director Simon Harper has worked within this sector since 1988, being involved in production/refurbishment and on-site installation. We have experience in putting together skilled teams to support our clients’ businesses during busy periods, in order to complement their in-house teams.

Clients have included:
Algeco UK, Modular Building Site Services, Severn Trading, Elliott Group

Refurbishment / Shopfitting

The ability to react quickly with the right labour is absolutely key within this sector. Harpers understands that when a shop or pub needs to open on an agreed date, it absolutely needs to happen. Our consultants have experience in supplying trades/labour and professional staff all over the UK as we have partnered with many leading refurbishment companies. We understand the pressure of ‘night working’ and have developed systems to ensure all labour turns up on site as required.

Clients have included:
Lancer Scott, Uplands Retail, Harvey Shopfitters, Elite Electrix, Honeyfields, Hills Construction


We have worked within this sector since 2009 with one of our first contracts involving the renewal of a citadel deep inside a forest in North Devon. We reacted smartly and were able to build up a team of 7 carpenters who had experience in the sector. Harpers fully understands that you cannot simply put commercial tradesmen into this very specialist sector.

Clients have included:
Corbel Conservation, Carrek Ltd, Sally Strachey Historic Conservation, Ellis & Co


We supported the ‘gold rush’ days of 2011/2012, supplying over 130 operatives involved in the building of two major solar farms in Somerset. This led to an ongoing relationship supplying maintenance staff and plant operators. We fully appreciate the tough demands the sector places on placing labour in often quite remote areas.

Clients have included:
Ethical Power, British Solar Renewables, Optisol Services

Engineering & Technical

Harpers were heavily involved in the refurbishment of the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare after the fire of 2009, supplying fabricator/welders, shot blasters and mutli skilled engineering operatives to replace every single fire damaged rivet on the Pier. We have also supplied highly skilled welders involved in the manufacture of grain silos.

Clients have included:
Centregreat Group, Price Engineered Solutions


We have supported a major Welsh landscaping contactor in the ongoing upgrading of patios/fencing and returfing of over 600 hundred council properties in the Swansea area. The contract lasted over 10 years and we supplied 94 workers per week at peak, as well as SSSTS site supervisors.

Clients have included:
Elmtree Garden Contractors, Gerald Davies, Four Seasons Landscape, NU Landscapes
