A growing construction firm is aiming to double its turnover to £20m as it celebrates a brand makeover and expansion into Yorkshire.
Northern Construction Solutions has refreshed its brand, and become simply NCS, with a new website to support its ambitions to target growth and national coverage.
The rebrand comes as NCS has opened a new regional office in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and taken on business development director, Jonathan Selwood- Hogg, who lives in Huddersfield, to head up the office and to help directors Sean Anderson and David Gardner drive forward the company.
The directors celebrated its success at a rebrand launch event yesterday at Newcastle’s medieval Black Gate, where NCS has just completed a major programme of refurbishment.
“It’s an exciting time for us at NCS with our new office in Leeds.
“We’re continuing to win work across the country and we’re taking on much larger contracts.
“We’ve built a great reputation in the North for our commitment to getting the job done right and for the innovative way we deal with more complex projects.
“We wanted to build on those solid foundations and we feel the new website and rebrand is a much cleaner, simpler way of reflecting our ambitions to grow the business nationally.
“We know Jonathan very well having worked with him in the past at a national contractor and we know he shares our vision for the company and will be a huge asset over the next few years.”
NCS, based at Chester-le-Street, County Durham, was established in 2002 and employs over 60 staff and operatives.
It has a turnover of £10m. It specialises in sectors such as heritage, care, education, community and amenity, sports and leisure, manufacturing facilities, process infrastructure and civil engineering projects.
As well as extensive refurbishment inside The Black Gate to create a reception area, exhibition and events space and office accommodation across four floors, NCS built an external lift, clad in oak, to merge with the building.
The company wrapped an impressive oak walkway around it which will age to blend in with the ancient walls.
NCS also undertook access and improvement works to the old dungeon in the adjacent Castle Keep.
Projects undertaken by NCS in Yorkshire include extension works to Underbank Rangers Rugby League Club, in Holmfirth, and also new facilities for Market Weighton FC through NCS’ Sports England Construction Framework, and school alterations at Egton Church of England Primary School, near Whitby, North Yorkshire.
