Civils/Construction Day

Date: TBC September


Location: Gateway 14, Freeport East

Sponsor: Jackson

Jackson was established in 1952 and this year celebrates its 70th birthday. Today, we operate out of seven offices across England, employing around 300 staff with roughly half that number working from our head office in Ipswich. We also engage scores of small businesses in the region who we subcontract to work on our projects.


We undertake civil engineering projects ranging from £500,000 to £50m in value, and our turnover last year was £100m. We work for major clients such as the Environment Agency, Highways England and Connect Plus, as well as many local authorities and private clients throughout the country.


In East Anglia, recent projects include upgrades to the Ipswich Tidal Barrier and flood defences at Woodbridge waterfront; the construction of the Beccles Southern Relief Road and Lowestoft Northern Spine Road; the installation of a swing mooring at the West Bank Terminal at Ipswich Docks and the stabilisation of coastal slopes on Clacton beachfront.


Jackson, the renown civil engineering company based in Suffolk, have pulled together a day of activities for local students on Monday 27th June as part of their support for The Festival of Suffolk.  To be held on their most recent development at Gateway14, at the Civils and Construction Day, their team will show the breadth of careers available in the civil engineering and construction industry.  Proving that actions speak louder than words the day will include displays of operational equipment and showcase the technology employed in this essential business sector.
