Stone Technical Services, in Darlington, carries out work across UK
A BUILDING restoration firm has strengthened its order book with contracts worth £200,000 across the UK, which it says could lead to new North-East jobs.
Stone Technical Services, based in Darlington, has carried out work on a 17th Century grade II-listed building and a North-East church, and fitted lightning protection to tower blocks.
The family-run firm, which employs 35 workers, sent its restoration experts to Barnard Castle Methodist Church for eight-week project to remove lead from the roof and install new timber treatment, as well as pointing ridge tiles and replacing missing roof slates.
Bosses, who expect turnover to reach £2.5m and have created five jobs this year, sent a masonry repair team to carry out boundary wall and restoration work at Central Newcastle High School, and deliver repairs to window sills and lead flashing at Bridge House in the city.
The company, run by Dave and Grahame Stone, is working with English Heritage in Derbyshire to preserve the grade II-listed Padley Hall, in Ripley, joining an archaeological team to dismantle parts of the ruin and re-build it to its exact form.
A team has also fitted lightning projection for Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council’s housing department on high rise tower blocks.
Dave Stone, managing director, said: “These projects are a real indication of the breadth of work that our different divisions carry out on a daily basis, everything from very modern housing stock to ancient ruins that need protecting and preserving.
“We’re now working in most areas of the UK thanks to our wide ranging services and exemplary reputation with the likes of English Heritage, all of which is allowing growth, and, hopefully even more jobs.”
