Our team specialises in earth works and decommissioning services in the North East. We have an array of facilities at our disposal which has helped us become a leading service provider in our field of work. These facilities aid us in providing all our clients with broad, swift services.

What We Have

In regards to our facilities, we have four quarries, three recycling centres, and four waste disposal sites. The quarries play an important role in our operations as they act as a method of both supply and disposal. They enable us to swiftly provide our customers with aggregates like sand, gravel, rock, and lime.

The size of our quarrying operations enables us to remove materials from sites. Then we will either dispose of them, or recycle and reuse them somewhere else. This allows us to significantly reduce our movements and costs of vehicle transport. Thanks to this, our customers enjoy low costs as well as a smaller carbon footprint, something which benefits the environment too.


Operations for our quarries follow the criteria of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. This highlights our dedication to upholding high quality standards. A big part of this is ensuring that we have a minimal impact on the environment.

We have environmental permits that enable us to accept inert materials. We can then process, crush, and recycle aggregates. Examples of what this can include are concrete and brick to produce new, high quality, recycled aggregates and soils.

Work like this helps us to ensure that people don’t spend energy disposing of the materials and then creating new ones.
