Building Consultancy embarks on expansion following strong start to 2020
Newcastle-headquartered Silverstone Building Consultancy is looking to expand its growing team following a strong start to the year.
The firm, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, is looking to recruit two new building surveyors and an administrator to join its 13-strong team.
The building surveying and project management specialist, which opened a second office in Leeds in 2018, says a strong pipeline of work has led to the recruitment drive.
Silverstone is currently appointed as project manager on a new 100-unit residential scheme in Newcastle city centre, an industrial refurbishment project for Calamander Developments in Durham, an office to residential conversion in Hexham on behalf of St Cuthbert’s Estates, a refurbishment at West One, Newcastle, and two retail refurbishment projects in Carlisle and South Shields.
Ben Hunter, co-founder and director at Silverstone said: “Since December, which may in part be due to increased political stability, we have seen an upturn in activity with our clients looking at investment opportunities and wanting to get on and resolve property related problems they have.”
“We are proud to be heading to the world’s leading property trade show MIPIM again next month for our third year running. We will again be promoting the north to all we speak to in a bid to attract new business and investment opportunities.”
The firm has also been appointed on portfolio surveys across the UK for Mapeley Estates and Luxury Leisure as well as projects in Sheffield, North Yorkshire, London and Lincolnshire.
Richard Farrey, co-founder and director at Silverstone added: “In the last two years we have appointed a non-executive director and a financial manager to help us with our long term strategy to become the first choice building surveyors for the north of England and with their help we are continuing to work towards this goal. We are now looking for some talented individuals who share our positive can-do working ethos to join our growing team.”
Last year the firm completed a £15m bespoke design and build manufacturing facility for SNOP UK as well as a new fulfilment centre for growing retailer, END, and the refurbishment of a major car parts facility for Minth Group.
