Why Pagabo in the North?

The North of England is where Pagabo’s journey began in 2014 and has grown to now be a prominent employer within the region. With offices in Hull and regional management from the North East, Pagabo’s commitment and support to our client base across the region is stronger than ever.

Since 2014, we have delivered over 500 projects totalling almost £800m across the North; and our future pipeline is strong, delivering through our tried and tested framework solutions along with new additions to the framework family for 2022 including civils and infrastructure, and demolition and site preparation.

The North is maximising all opportunities for growth within the Construction sector. Funding application and delivery is both a huge opportunity and challenge in delivery, along with regional issues of vast unemployment, social exclusion and skills gaps. Our team at Pagabo, and our integrated ecosystem of consultants and contractors are embedded within the region; delivering demonstrable best value and social return on investment to tackle these issues head on.
