About Us

Gipping Construction is a privately owned company with strong financial reserves and a loyal and qualified workforce. The Company is based near Ipswich and works in the private and public sectors throughout East Anglia.

We firmly believe in “working with, not against” clients. Our employees, sub-contractors and suppliers, strive to achieve positive communication throughout the project ensuring it is delivered to budget and to an agreed timescale. Gipping’s sensitive approach to projects has led to repeat business with professionals and clients including The National Trust, Suffolk and Essex County Councils including St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Tendring District Council,  Greenfield Community Housing, Flagship Housing Group,  Orwell Housing Association together with many schools and colleges and many other private Clients.

The Company has a diverse and reliable supply chain which has embraced the Company’s core values. Sub-contractors are selected, approved and verified before starting work on site, since they are an integral part and critical to the success of every project. This positive approach has resulted in sub-contractors providing an enhanced level of service, adding value to the customer.

Whilst Gipping has good procedures and processes which it adapts to particular contract requirements, the Company’s Unique Selling Point is its people, who all share the same core values which are that every Client and every project is special.
