History

(From Firm’s Website)
The company was first formed in 1848, when Matthew Hall opened a lead-work business in the UK. This later became the Matthew Hall Group of Companies. Separately, in 1883 Leonard Fairclough started a stone business in the UK, which expanded into construction at the turn of the century.
In 1982 Fairclough Construction merged with William Press (founded in 1913) to form AMEC plc. Six years later the Matthew Hall Group of Companies was incorporated into the AMEC Group. AMEC was acquired by Wood PLC in October of 2017, they then shifted to more of an energy and sustainability driven company and moved away from just buildings.
