Wharton Construction has secured more than £ 7 million worth of work in the Tees Valley in the first six months of 2021, with an additional £ 8 million of projects scheduled to begin by the end of the year.

As part of the Darlington-headquartered company’s plans to expand its customer base, it has also generated £ 2 million in work with new customers.

Director Matthew Wharton said, “Following a review of our tendering strategy, Wharton Construction currently has more than £ 7 million in site work and a similar value on projects expected to start later this year.

“Traditionally, as a family-run company, we’ve worked with a relatively small pool of clients and architects, but over the past 12 months we’ve developed a more proactive attitude by doing new business.”

The company specializes in commercial and public projects in the North East and North Yorkshire and believes it is ideally positioned to capitalize on investments in Darlington and across the Tees Valley.

Wharton Construction is involved in several high profile projects including The Northern Studios, the Northeast’s first major film and television studio on the Hartlepool campus of the Northern School of Art, along with the remodeling of Darlington’s Historic Market Hall, a new sixth form center on Carmel College, Darlington and the Goosepool Bar at Teesside International Airport.

Matthew added: “We are very pleased to have been selected for the projects we are currently delivering or about to begin. It is thanks to the hard work of all of our employees to strengthen our ties to existing customers and at the same time to build relationships with new customers. “

“The construction market is particularly lively at the moment and has enabled us to build a healthy work pipeline.

“However, companies are currently faced with excessive material prices, a trend which, if it continues, will make some development projects unprofitable.”
