Billingham-based RPD Builders has recently won several prestigious six-figure contracts with the Noreast group of Co-ownership Housing Societies.
The building and construction firm is completing work on five separate Noreast sites throughout the North East, including blocks of flats in Billingham, Darlington, Norton, Marton and Fairfield.
The majority of the work is involving re-roofing the flats and, in addition, RPD Builders is completing additional maintenance work for the Noreast Group, including improvement work to the sites’ boundary walls and footpaths and the construction of a new garage block.
Managing director Peter Davison said: “The work we are completing for Noreast Housing Society demonstrates the scope and expertise of RPD Builders.
“We work on projects ranging from social housing developments to bespoke domestic projects and we’d definitely like to put RPD’s extensive skillset to use on even more commercial developments in the future.
“During the recession, we noticed a slump in the number of commercial contracts and regeneration in the region stalled.
“However, with the economy showing signs of improvement, there has been greater investment and confidence in commercial projects, which means greater improvement to our local area and more opportunities in the sector for job creation.”
Tony Richardson, architect and board member of Rocket Housing Society, which manages the Noreast Group of Co-ownership Housing Societies, said: “We have been extremely impressed with the work underway and completed by RPD Builders. The team has worked tirelessly to meet our exacting requirements, providing high-quality work and a professional and honest service.”
Established in 2002 by Peter Davison, an experienced builder and site manager, RPD Builders’ expertise ranges from domestic house modifications, such as extensions and conversions, to commercial projects of almost any scope or size.
