VolkerLaser is the UK’s leading multi-functional contractor, delivering specialist, civil engineering and energy efficient solutions to the construction industry.

VolkerLaser was formed in 1994 by its current Managing Director, Mike Weaver. Originally part of the Worcestershire based Laser Civil Engineering Ltd; the business has gone from strength to strength over the past 21 years, creating its own identity as Laser Special Projects in 2000.

The Laser Group was acquired by €4.5 billion major European construction group, VolkerWessels, in 2005. The business was then rebranded to VolkerLaser in March 2009 under the umbrella of VolkerWessels UK.

VolkerWessels are a multi-disciplinary construction and civil engineering group with a turnover of £570 million in the UK, employing more than 2000 staff across six operating companies.

Being a part of a larger group provides VolkerLaser with the backing of a financially strong parent company, and access to an international network of companies with an unrivalled pool of resources and expertise. VolkerLaser can therefore offer consolidated services backed by extensive company resources.
