Director Announcement

We are pleased to introduce our new Pre-Construction Director Steve Francis.  Leading our Estimating facility Steve has extensive experience in the industry, as well as running his own consultancy providing Quantity Surveying services to contractors and clients.  “I have worked in construction in the North East region for 40 years, 15 of which have been at Senior  Management level in businesses such as Keepmoat, Esh, and Gentoo.  Having grown up in Bishop Auckland I am very pleased to be joining the company and appreciate the long heritage and tradition associated with the name, and I hope that my experience can be of benefit to the whole team” explained Steve.

Simon Manners, Managing Director welcomes Steve stating “Steve has already made a fantastic addition to our Senior Management Team. We wish him all the success in his future with us and look forward to working together”.

With 2021 came the retirement of two of our long standing Directors Martin Wheelhouse and Alan Crawford, we hope they are enjoying a very happy retirement and thank them for their long service and dedication over the past some 40 years each.

Opportunity has arisen through this natural attrition also with the internal promotion of Joe Reed who now heads up Small Works, well done Joe! We are also seeking an Estimator / Assistant Estimator to support Steve and help shape the Pre-Construction function within T. Manners as we move forward. Please check out our careers page for more information on this exciting and rare opportunity!

Robert Manners, Finance Director, commented “We have been privileged to have benefited from a strong well established core management team for some 20 years and will continue to build and strengthen based on this experience and systems put in place”.
