Built for success

May 1, 2019

Esh Construction is building a stellar reputation in the North East and has recently welcomed three experienced additions to its commercial build team

North East-based Esh Construction – which has its head office in Bowburn, Durham – is continuing to grow its reputation in the region, having recently completed Cleveland Police’s Community Safety Hub in Middlesbrough, Newcastle Eagles’ Community Arena, on the Scotswood Road, Newcastle Airport’s terminal extension and Northumbria University’s CIS and Sutherland buildings.

It is also proud to announce the addition of three new members of staff to its build division.

Paul Redman, divisional director of Esh Build, says: “We have taken our time to secure three staff in key positions which complement the experience and skillsets within our business.

“Our new team members will support our growth and bring in a wealth of technical and business knowledge.”

Brian Joyce, who has joined the company as operations director, says: “The quality of the projects undertaken by Esh is of the highest standard. The company has a real focus on delivery and supports the communities in which it operates. It’s great to join such an experienced team.”

Gary Walker, who was recently appointed commercial manager, says: “There are many opportunities for us to deliver high-quality builds, value engineering solutions and an industry-leading social value package.”

Brian and Gary have more than 50 years’ experience in the industry between them – working at Laing O’Rourke and Balfour Beatty respectively.

Joining Brian and Gary is Ray Nugent, who has taken up a role as design and bid manager following 30 years in the construction industry where he worked for both consultants and Tier 1 national contractors.

The recruits join Darren Warneford, Esh Group’s customer relationship director, who will continue his strategic role with a focus on identifying new opportunities for Esh Build.

Alongside the appointments, the firm’s future looks bright having secured its place on key frameworks including NEPO (North East Procurement Organisation) — where Esh is the only regionally based contractor in the £5 million plus commercial build category — and appointments to Pagabo, Fusion 21 and Sunderland University’s Major Works Framework.
