We take inspiration from other sectors and continually improve what we do to attract and retain great people, as well as create high performing teams.

Safety at Kapitol isn’t lip-service and it’s driven from the top. It makes my job a lot easier when I go out on projects to know I have the backing and support of upper management.

Coming from a non-construction background I had no idea I’d end up here. Andrew and Dave showed me a lot of faith and took the time to teach me everything they know. I love my job and that’s all thanks to them taking a chance on me.
