Clugston Construction, one of the North’s leading privately owned building and civil engineering contractors, with offices in Hebburn Tyne & Wear, has secured a new contract worth £7.0 million for Tracerco in Billingham (part of the FTSE 100 Johnson Matthey Plc). The project for Tracerco is supported by the Let’s Grow Fund, a £30m Regional Growth Fund programme providing grant support for capital investment and R&D projects creating or safeguarding jobs in the North East of England. It will involve Clugston developing a new Technology Centre. The new facility will include bespoke research and testing facilities for the company’s subsea products and services.
The contract will provide employment opportunities across Clugston’s entire supply chain. The project will provide work for over 100 construction people during the delivery. As a result of the secured contract, the company has also made several appointments at its office in Hebburn.
Clugston Construction’s regional manager Steve Waggett commented, “We are delighted to have secured this prestigious project with Tracerco. We look forward to securing more contracts in the North East region and to further enhance our reputation. This important project demonstrates the diverse capabilities we have to offer customers in the North East. We have the expertise to work on complex civil engineering projects through to high quality industrial and commercial projects.”
The Clugston Group recently posted an excellent set of accounts. Figures for the year, 2012/13, show turnover increased by 30 percent to £108.7m from £83.8m in the previous year and a threefold increase in pre-tax profit from £2.0m to £6.1m.
