A Newcastle-based firm of specialist chartered building surveyors has received a series of instructions from companies within the North East’s booming energy sector.
Silverstone Building Consultancy, who became members of business development agency NOF Energy earlier this year, have developed a strong client base within the energy sector. Silverstone has carried out work on behalf of DUCO, a subsidiary of Technip, Swagelok, Global Marine Systems, TTE Technical Training and Tekmar Energy.
Ben Hunter, director at Silverstone said: “As a result of the work we have carried out within the energy sector we have developed a stronger understanding of its importance in the North East market. We have gained specialist knowledge and experience which we are confident will help us secure further new clients in this growing sector.”
Silverstone offer project management and building surveying services to commercial property owners and occupiers and they see energy companies as a major target market. During the past year Silverstone has carried out detailed building surveys on major sites for both Global Marine Systems and Duco with a view to expanding their respective facilities. One of the sites extended to 16 hectares and the work involved co-ordinating a number of specialist surveys including environmental surveys and testing for erosion and contamination.
