The Writing’s on the Wall…

We’re celebrating 160 years of building! To commemorate this milestone we have an exciting new logo.

Back to Business!

The foundations are now complete at Barton Street, Darlington. We’re constructing 16Nr bungalows as part of a social housing scheme. Over the next coming months we’ll be posting the progress with this project so keep a look out.


Thank you to everyone involved with fundraising for our chosen charity, together we have raised a whopping £502 as well as donating a huge amount of food and wood. We would like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Our offices will now be closed until Monday 6th January 2020.

Annual Christmas Charity

This year we have chosen to partner with a charity local to us, Shildon Alive and raise as much donations as possible. Shildon Alive is a small charity ran by volunteers and rely hugely on donations. We will be collecting food, coats and monetary donations in the run up to Christmas to help those in crisis. If you would like to help please get in touch!

Students Site Visit

Yesterday we had the pleasure of welcoming some M&E students from East Durham College onto our site in Darlington, Catcastle Court. The students received first-hand experience on a live construction site. We are pleased to see young people interested in joining the Construction Industry & are happy to involve the local community in our projects!

North Yorkshire Floods

Over the past few months our Small Works division have been working under the instruction of insurers to strip out homes affected by recent floods in Reeth and Arkengarthdale. Residents of these villages experienced a month’s worth of rain in just four hours damaging their homes and businesses. Our thoughts are with all those affected.

Read all about it!

As our 160th Anniversary approaches in the new year we’ve been busy looking through old photographs & newspaper clippings and found this article from The Auckland Times dated all the way back to 7th May 1897! We’re proud of our company history and that we’re still owned and managed completely by the Manners family!

40Nr Apartments, Darlington

Arguably one of our most popular projects, Catcastle Apartments are due for completion just in time for Christmas. The project comprised of a four storey block of 28Nr Apartments, a three storey block of 12Nr Apartments and a bin store. Keep a look out for internal photos early January!

It’s all in the details…

Our Specialist Joinery Division have completed a yearlong project at Auckland Castle, carrying out repairs to the existing woodwork and creating new special features made to look historic. The areas worked on have never been open to the public but will be over the next coming weeks. Here’s some photos of the detailed work carried out by us!

16Nr Bungalows, Darlington

We have completed the ground strengthening process at Barton Street. We have used a concrete piled foundation on this project. The site once complete will house 16Nr bungalows as part of a social housing scheme.
