Graeme Newton, Managing Director
In 1986 Graeme began his career in construction as a trainee working directly under former owner and Managing Director, Mr Randall Orchard. Experience was gained across the spectrum in construction with particular strengths picked up in surveying, development and building management.
Graeme was admitted into the Chartered Institute of Building in 1996 after completing his studies at the University of Northumbria.
Many years of commitment to the company lead to a structured buy out of the business in 2004 by Graeme and his wife Jo. Modernisation of this traditional company has continued whilst the core values and strengths have been maintained.
An understanding of managing the build process and close communication with clients has underpinned his approach to running the business.
Graeme is a keen supporter of many sporting and community organisations and is fundamental to Richmondshire Rugby Club.
