As our contract for the levelling and extension of berth 2 at Portsmouth International Port neared its conclusion, we were asked to accommodate the arrival of Royal Caribbean Cruises' Majesty of the Seas. At 268m she is the longest ship to have berthed at Portsmouth and was a fitting guest for the berth's first official use.

Introduction to Knights Brown and our people

We launched our first company video in September 2019 to coincide with the second anniversary of our rebranding.
It features our people and showcases our projects and the diversity of our offering. It focuses on our key messages of putting our people first, delivering projects we are proud of, and achieving ambitions both for our people and our customers.
We also think it shows just how far we've come over the past two years.
