We also undertake design and build building packages with experience in various build styles including steel frames, reinforced concrete frames, basements and traditional brick/block work. Bespoke projects, such as waste recycling centres, data centres and new utility infrastructure complete our wide-ranging portfolio of works.

This statement is made in conformance with Section 54, of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps Natta Building Company has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in its business or any part of its supply chain. Natta’s code of conduct prohibits modern slavery.

Our products are used in construction and civil engineering, in total we have over 400 workers and employees nationally. We rely on construction industry partners and suppliers nationally to help design, develop and construct our product portfolio and support our operations and network. Natta works with over 1,000 suppliers mainly in the UK and occasionally overseas.

The Natta Group is committed to driving out acts of modern slavery and human trafficking within its business and its supply chains, including sub-contractors and partners. All Natta employees have a responsibility to comply with this policy and be alert to the risks brought about by modern slavery in our business and the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report any concerns and management are expected to act upon them.

Suppliers (including their own subsidiaries or sub-contractors) are expected to act in accordance with Natta’s core principles.

Natta Building Company has zero tolerance for forced labour, involuntary labour, child labour and human trafficking. We will ensure compliance through management meetings, site visits, and internal and external audits. Natta Building Company has put in place fair and transparent recruitment and resourcing procedures in relation to labour practices, false employment and modern slavery in accordance with relevant legislation and standards. We expect all suppliers to conduct right-to-work checks of their workforce in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, which will be reinforced when a worker attends their first site induction and where their papers will be verified.

Natta Building Company will seek to work in partnership with all suppliers to combat the threat of human trafficking and modern day slavery across the construction industry and throughout our supply chain, in accordance with the international environmental, social and ethical standards.

The management of human rights risk and impact in our business operations is embedded into existing management systems and processes. Our Senior Management Team is responsible for ensuring compliance with local laws and regulations. Our teams work with the business leaders to ensure compliance with this policy. All employees receive regular communications and we support regular training on human rights-related concerns.
