Tarmac is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions company.
Building our World
Ever since Tarmac invented the modern road surface over 100 years ago, we have been reinventing it, making it stronger, more durable and more sustainable. Tarmac Contracting is adopting the same pioneering approach to the way we construct and maintain our roads. Responding to today’s road traffic volumes and net zero ambitions, we offer customers a new generation of PAVE. Developed using the latest technology, digital capability and supply innovation, PAVE Technology Solutions delivers carbon cutting, durable, efficient productivity and digital connectivity.

Working with our supply partners, Tarmac is developing and launching a new generation of low carbon, biogenic and long-life asphalts that will help reduce carbon footprints, capture carbon and significantly extend pavement life compared to current materials.
Circular Economy Solutions
With reuse and recovery of materials a core focus of our sustainability strategy we are investing in a new generation of asphalt plants and wider use of alternative fuels to enable cleaner manufacture of asphalts and the use of higher levels of RAP content into asphalt mixes, for improved sustainability.
We are also leading the way in materials innovation that incorporates other secondary materials like steel slag aggregate and rubber from end-of-life car tyres into asphalt mixes, while maintaining or even enhancing performance.
