Innovation & value engineering
Founded over 30 years ago, Mildren is a regional contractor based in Christchurch, Dorset who operate throughout the south of England. The turnover split between the civil engineering and building disciplines is approximately equal.
With a large proportion of its workforce directly employed and its long-term relationships with consultants, regional/national suppliers and specialist sub-contractors, the company can provide a complete service to the industry.
Chairman and principal shareholder Chris Wingham together with his team of six directors participate in the day to day management of the company.

What we do
This is the founding discipline of the company and has formed a large part of our turnover in each of our 30 years trading. Projects include highways and highway infrastructure, heavy industrial plants, flood defences and utilities. Much of this work is done by our directly employed labour force. We are an approved contractor for highways and structures for most of the County, Borough and City Councils across the south of England.
Having grown to over half of our annual turnover, our building experience ranges from industrial and commercial sheds through public buildings to complicated refurbishment projects. By using our local knowledge and excellent supply chain we are able to produce value for money buildings, meeting the Client’s requirements.
Design & Construction
Whether the design requirement is full or partial, we use our in-house staff to understand a Client’s needs and then to produce cost effective proposals. After refining the design, often through a value engineering process, we are regularly able to utilise our twin civil engineering and building skills to construct the project to a tight time scale.
