True North Construction is a North East based business established in February 2019.
The business is run by David Roberts and Steven Henderson who have over 40 years’ joint experience in the building trade. We are supported by our team of skilled tradesmen.
We are specialists in delivering both contemporary and modern high-end extensions, refurbishments and renovations across Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham.
We, at True North, work tirelessly to produce a high-quality finish to match the brief set out at the start of the project and to bring the project in on time.
We do this by developing close working relationships with our clients, other local trades and architects who we liaise with regularly.
We strongly believe that True North Construction offers a friendly, stress-free and reliable service to our clients at all phases of the project, from early development to completion, and it is the personal touch offered by David & Steven that set us apart.
Timber Frame constructionHave you ever dreamed of building your own home? Just not sure where to start? Well at True North Construction we can make your dream become a reality and help you every step of the way. Constructing a Timber Frame home has many benefits, it’s an incredibly adaptable material and it can be used in a variety of designs including extensions.
Using sustainable materials that are also environmentally friendly, Timber frame structures can also be mostly prefabricated off-site, which saves time when installing. Where timber frame excels is its ability to get to low u-values without having to increase the width of the wall significantly.This can be achieved because the insulation can be fitted inside the timber frame portion of the wall. With traditional cavity construction (blocks) if you want to get the u-value down you need to increase the width of the cavity in order to fit in more insulation and possibly even add insulation to the back of the plasterboard on the inside face of the wall. All of which means the wall thickness has to increase quite a bit in order to accommodate the additional insulation this in turn can make your room sizes smaller. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Project ManagementFrom the sidelines, project management might seem like an easy job. You just have to oversee others’ work. In reality, it requires certain experience and know-how to juggle between everything going on. Finding the optimal solution can be challenging. This is often referred to as the Project Management Triangle of speed, quality and cost. Balancing these three is a difficult task and this is where True North Construction Ltd can help guiding you through your project. Everyone working on the project should be aware of the customer’s needs and the end goal, good planning and teamwork are paramount to enable us to hit these goals.
Planning takes those ideas and makes them work for a common goal and this is where you sometimes realise the difficulties that might arise during a build. Our vision and values are to build with honesty, integrity and quality, this is something we strive to deliver. From our experience, what people usually want is something that they deem value for money (combining quality and price), we believe with careful consideration and planning this can be delivered. At True North Construction Ltd we maintain good communication so if any issue should arise that may affect the schedule (triangle) the team is aware and we will do our upmost to be back on track.
We’re based in the North East of England. If you’re looking for advice or quotation on any forthcoming projects, we’d love to hear from you.
