Exciting expansion of the Senior Management Team

19th October 2022

We have recently expanded our senior management team here at STP Construction setting our sights on future growth and expansion across the UK.

We have welcomed to the team Dave Wild as Estimating Manager, Neil Balmer as Contracts Manager, and Mike Smith as Senior Buyer, bringing further industry-leading knowledge to our already experienced team.

From being established in 2003 by Ian Cowling and John Smailes, we have grown quickly, fast becoming one of the region’s most recognised names in construction and have been able to build an enviable client list including names such as Aldi, Newcastle Building Society, NHS, Arriva, Northumbria University, and UK Land Estates.

We are delighted to welcome Dave, Neil, and Mike to the team. As a reputable construction firm, we are committed to providing industry-leading construction services and solutions and delivering projects to the 100% satisfaction of our clients. Our future success and growth as a business is significantly dependent on the strength of our team, which has certainly been bolstered by our latest raft of appointments.

Given the continued shortage of materials and with inflation rising at its fastest in 40 years, it remains a challenging time for the UK construction industry. Figures from the ONS show that monthly construction output decreased by 0.4% in volume terms in April 2022, the first monthly decline since October 2021. Therefore, it’s certainly been a difficult few years and continues to be so. Mitigating the impact that the construction sector is facing is pivotal to the growth of STP and our continued delivery of high-end projects. Our policy of upfront buying remains crucial to us staying ahead of the game, and we remain focused on developing close working relationships with clients allowing us to deliver projects within the timeframes and budgets set. 

As a significant player in the construction industry, we pride ourselves on the positive impact on shaping the built environment of its North East home. STP Construction is noted for having worked on the sympathetic refurbishments of historical and listed buildings as well as building bespoke office buildings, creating and supporting the education sector with their design and build projects and operating with the civil engineering market.

We are proud of all we have achieved, but we are looking firmly to the future. We are focused on increasing the business’s turnover by 50% during the next year through the continued provision of high-quality construction projects supported by our
expanding team of construction professionals.
