Growing construction firm Northern Construction Solutions is aiming to double turnover to £20m after going through a brand makeover and expansion into Yorkshire.

The Chester-le-Street firm has refreshed its brand to become simply NCS, with a new website to support its ambitions to target growth and national coverage.

The firm specialises in sectors such as heritage, care, education, community and amenity, sports and leisure, manufacturing facilities, process infrastructure and civil engineering projects.

The rebrand comes as NCS, which employs more than 60 staff, has opened a new regional office in Leeds, taking on business development director, Jonathan Selwood-Hogg, to help directors Sean Anderson and David Gardner drive forward the company.

The directors celebrated the expansion at a rebrand launch at Newcastle’s medieval Black Gate, where NCS has just completed major programme of refurbishment.

Sean Anderson: “It’s an exciting time for us at NCS. 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 East 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.

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 also wrapped a 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.
