Quigg Golden was established in 1979 under the name Contract & Construction Consultants. Since its inception, Quigg Golden has continued to expand in the Construction Industry in the UK, Ireland, Middle and Far East. Throughout this expansion, Quigg Golden’s focus has been to provide a high quality service in construction and procurement law to its clients.
Getting the balance right
Quigg Golden have always subscribed to the ethical tradition that success in business brings with it a wide range of responsibilities - to the community, to staff, to clients and suppliers and to the environment. For over 20 years we have built a business that has taken those responsibilities as seriously as we take any other aspect of our business development.
Quigg Golden are constantly finding new ways to create a successful balance between key areas of business integrity and the central economic imperative of business development. For the global business community as a whole, this is one of the key challenges of the immediate future, and we are committed to finding the best ways of meeting the challenge, and turning it into an opportunity.
Giving back to our communities
Quigg Golden have always sought to make a real difference to the communities around us. Over many years we have developed a wide ranging programme of professional, charitable and community support, and today we offer our people every opportunity and encouragement both to take part in our corporate initiatives and to support their own causes.
We support charities, in terms of both time and money. We have made donations to the Wooden Spoon who are rugby's charity supporting mentally, physically and socially disadvantaged children and young people.
Building on the foundations of CCC Edward Quigg and James Golden were the original Directors of Quigg Golden. Edward and James’ vision was of a company with its clients and its people at its heart. They understood that a successful consultancy is based on developing partnerships with clients. These partnerships can only be developed by professionals who deliver excellence in their work, who value teamwork and integrity and who keep the commercial interests of the client at the centre of everything they do.
That Quigg Golden has trebled in size under Edward and James’ leadership is a testament to their adherence to these values. The increase in size of the firm has seen the expansion of leadership team with the appointment of Jonathan Parker and Pauric Marray as Directors.
Our continued expansion means that we constantly need to identify individuals who possess the necessary skill, enthusiasm and ambition to succeed in a highly competitive market. Quigg Golden is keenly aware that the foundation of our success has been attracting and maintaining the highest calibre of people to work for us.
