OUR NEXT PROJECT - BETTER THAN THE REST

About Us

We are a Darlington based building contractor that works throughout the North East and North Yorkshire. We specialise in commercial and public sector projects and have a dedicated small works team for maintenance requirements and shorter projects. We can offer a wide range of construction services of up to £3m per project.  

We've been in business for over 30 years and have completed many memorable projects, worked with some great clients and aim to offer the same high standard of service for many years to come.

Everything that we do is underpinned by the company values listed below, and we seek to work with like-minded organisations. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any construction related enquiries.
