Celebrating DGP’s women today – International Women’s Day.

DGP are continuing to increase the proportion of females at all levels within our teams, challenging the stereotype that construction is not a welcoming industry for women. Raising awareness against bias and taking action for equality – it’s not just about today when we celebrate it, but about every day!

Happy International Women’s Day!

DGP has strengthened its newly formed UK infrastructure arm with Dave Pateman (Managing Director), Michael McMillan (Operations Director) and Darren Ramsay (Non-Executive Director) among its key appointments.

Ramsay brings 36-plus years’ experience in contracting, particularly in the infrastructure sector, including executive leadership positions with JN Bentley and J. Murphy Group.

As the Managing Director at J. Murphy Group, he influenced the business strategy to support growth, advancing the £450 million business to a circa £1 billion organisation with multiple profitable divisions, including key infrastructure sectors such as Water, Utilities, Rail, Power, Tunnelling & Piling.

Pateman most recently held the position of Commercial Director with Balfour Beatty Major Projects, where he was a member of the Senior Leadership Team working with HS2 Area North. Prior to that, he amassed over 31 years’ experience across major projects in Rail, Air, Civil Engineering, Utilities and Telecommunications.

McMillan joins DGP Infrastructure with over 17 years professional experience working in various sectors including Highways, Civils, Rail, Local Authority and Utilities. He brings over six years’ experience with the Kier Group (Highways), where he oversaw multimillion pound budgets to deliver maintenance and operations activities, including the recent M20 Smart Motorway. His earlier career saw him working within the design team at Mott MacDonald before moving on to Balfour Beatty/Mott MacDonald JV, on behalf of the Highways division.

Ramsay said he was excited to be working in parallel with the existing DGP businesses and newly appointed DGP Infrastructure Leadership Team. “As we start our journey to develop our future business strategy and grow the business, we seek to encompass the many opportunities that will emanate from the expanding UK infrastructure sector,” he said.

The newly created roles will see the trio charged with growing the DGP Infrastructure Contracting business alongside DGP Logistics Group Managing Director Saheb Dhesi.

Last Thursday was Time to Talk Day, a day when people are encouraged to talk about their mental health. Of course, the reality for some is, mental health issues can be 365 days a year.
This is something we recognise at DGP and whilst we have made good progress to address mental health in the workplace, there is always more to be done.

Last week we held one hour, daily video conferencing session’s for our office staff, an open forum for anyone to attend for a Time to Talk. Even a general chit chat, helped lifted people’s moods, especially at a time when people are more isolated, working from home, spending less time with their family, friends and socialising.
We also held sessions across our sites, promoting our Employee Assistance Programme for anyone in need of further support throughout the year.

The programme includes online help as well as face-to-face counselling and a wellbeing portal. Leaflets were handed out and posters displayed to help promote the service. In addition, our Mental Health First Aiders were available for a confidential talk, across several of our sites.
