Founded in 1975, Dowhigh Limited has grown to become one of the largest independent public works companies in the region.

Liverpool based, with satellite depots across the region, our strategy has been to retain all the ethos and ‘personal-touch’ of a family business, whilst competing effectively on a national stage within a market dominated by PLC’s and consortiums.

A modern approach with ‘old school’ foundations, experience, passion and ‘can-do’ attitude – these are the cornerstones of our approach at Dowhigh Limited.

This unique mix of ‘hands-on’ professional management and strong leadership, combined with our ongoing commitment to innovation and best value has helped us to develop an impressive portfolio of clients., including serving the needs of over twenty local authorities from across the North West.

An experienced civil engineering company with the skills to complete a range of projects, we’re the trusted partner of both authorities and private companies tasked to provide high quality projects throughout the area. 


Since we were formed, our client base has been diverse. Working with all of the major councils across the North West we’ve played our part in providing new infrastructure as well as maintaining the road networks to the highest quality. 

Across our history we have completed works for councils and authorities including Liverpool, Sefton, Manchester, Lancashire, Wigan, Warrington, St. Helens, Widnes and Knowsley and continue to complete works under framework agreements as well as tender and spot tender agreements.

We also work with a varied range of private clients across the area such as Palace Chemicals, Merseyrail, British Land, local schools, parish churches and more.
