Brickwork Repointing, Remedial Wall Ties and Brickwork Repairs
We directly employ between 10 and 20 Repointing, Ties and Repairs specialists, at any one time. We undertake vast amounts of these works for local authorities throughout the North East of England and beyond. Projects range from one off response works, 20-30 houses, and schemes of 500-1000 houses which are handed to us in desperate need of restoration.
We have a track record of delivering all of these schemes on time and on budget. The positive feedback we receive from our clients and their tenants is testament to the quality of work we undertake. Well over 80% of this type of work is repeat business, which again speaks volumes in the satisfaction of our clients.
New Build Masonry Works
Pringle Building Services Ltd employ a number of highly skilled bricklayers who are responsible for the majority of the masonry works we complete. Whether it be for new build houses or garden and retaining walls, the attention to detail and quality of work is excellent.
Our most recent masonry project was in a housing estate in Newcastle. The project involved the demolition and rebuild of over 500,000 bricks to garden and retaining walls.
Groundworks, Civil Works
We have vast experience in undertaking groundwork packages of varying sizes. Our primary focus on groundworks is on large residential schemes where we would be required to undertake a range of works from, cut and fill of land to required levels – dealing with any contamination in the process, excavate and pour foundations, lay drainage & duct, through to hard and soft landscaping, concrete and tarmac works as well as kerbing and paving works.
Pringle Building Services Ltd also undertake smaller groundwork packages for house extensions, one off retaining walls, garden walls and the like. All aspects of these works are carried out ‘in-house’ by our skilled ground workers.
External Works & Paving
Due to the extensive knowledge and capabilities of our experienced workmen, we are able to play a primary role in supporting our development company on large residential schemes, whilst still offering our services as the main contractor to private clients.
The most recent example of these works is the paving we completed at St James Place, Dacre Street. There was a considerable amount of hard and soft landscaping, with a new path being formed and paving of all communal areas leading to the apartments and formal gardens.
House Extensions & Conversions
We have been involved in the planning, design and construction stages of house extensions and conversions in the local area for around 20 years – on large redevelopments and smaller scale projects. Our multi-skilled labour force allows us to undertake all aspects of the redevelopments with no need to use subcontractors.
New and Replacement Roofline (Fascia, Soffit, Guttering) Works
These works are predominantly undertaken on behalf of local authorities, on housing stock in the North East region. We have recently completed a project that included over 200 houses and outhouses which all required existing roofline to be removed, making good of any structure and installing new fascia, soffits and guttering. PBSL were responsible for all aspects of the project including but not limited to scaffolding, demolition and replacement of roofline materials. We completed all demolition and roofline works with our own directly employed labour and finished the scheme 2 months ahead of programme and under the initial budget.
