We have been shortlisted for National Federation of Builders Awards 2015

Our project at the Halcyon Centre, Stockton on Tees has been shortlisted by the NFB for the award of Refurbishment of the Year 2015. This is the third NFB shortlisting we have achieved in the last four years! The Halcyon Centre project was a major refurbishment to provide a services and support hub for dementia sufferers, their families and carers. See more details of this project, and others on our website.

    External Wall Insulation completed at Shipcote Terrace, Gateshead.

External Wall Insulation completed at Shipcote Terrace, Gateshead.

This has been a really interesting project – externally insulating the rear elevation of a complete terrace of Tyneside flats for Home Group. It was quite a challenging project too as the insulation and render finish had to accommodate the fixings for external stairs, handrails and telecom services as well as the more usual accommodations for RWPs and the rest. As the picture below shows, the finished project looks superb, improving the look of the elevation as well as improving insulation levels and cutting heating costs.


We’re back to Knotts Flats

We are delighted to have been appointed by Home Group to repoint this iconic block of appartments in Tynemouth at the very mouth of the Tyne! The 135 apartments that make up Knotts Flats are perhaps the most prominant group of apartments on Tyneside – they certainly enjoy the most striking of views across the mouth of the Tyne and beyond. We have just secured an appointment to repoint the south face of the blocks; last year we completed the replacement of patio doors at the apartments, so once again our craftsmen will have plenty of chances to enjoy that view!knotts flats

Window replacement without the pain at Charlotte Straker House

We have just completed this project to replace more than 70 windows  with timber sash and casement windows manufactured in our own workshops. The project has been a great success, with one resident commenting, “Just to put on record our thanks to you for the excellent work undertaken by T. Manners and Sons at Charlotte Straker, Corbridge. Chris and his team have been outstanding and worked to ensure that the residents and patients in the House had minimal disruption to their lives. The standard of the work is very high along with the finish; a very professional job. All this despite the House being a quirky and very individual early Victorian building.

More details and pictures of this project will go on our website in the next few days.
