Established in 1986, Thames & Newcastle is a main building contractor with over 30 years experience operating in London and the south east.
We operate as either a traditional main contractor, forming close links with your own design team, or as a specialist design and build contractor, where we can take your project through from inception and feasibility to planning and completion onsite.
Our objective is to maintain the traditional values of being a family oriented business, while striving to offer the professional approach that is required by our clients but usually the preserve of much larger organisations.
We have significant experience in the London residential market working with both specialist developers and private clients, including a number of VIP’s. However, as approved contractors for many public authorities we also undertake a range of healthcare, education and commercial projects for our public sector and corporate clients.
At Thames & Newcastle we recognise the confidence instilled in our clients by association with external bodies. As a Chartered Building Company we offer a high standard of workmanship to all of our clients and pride ourselves on never sacrificing quality.
Chartered Building Companies are independently assessed and regularly audited and can demonstrate that they:
- Are competently and professionally run
- Operate to high business and ethical standards
- Are committed to developing a fully qualified workforce
We directly employ many key trades and have close links with a number of specialist sub-contractors with whom we work on a regular basis. By adopting this approach we feel we maintain a good balance between quality control and cost control.
We provide the following services:
- High End Residential
- New Build
- Basement Construction
- Listed Buildings
- Bespoke Joinery
- Property Management & Maintenance Services
