Finley Structures targets education sector growth after double contract delight

A FAMILY-RUN steel fabrication company has strengthened its market standing with two education sector deals.

Finley Structures is working on a 360-tonne sports village project at the University of Hull.

The business, based in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, has also completed a 625-tonne contract at Sheffield’s Bannerdale School.

The deals follow several nationwide agreements in the education sector for Finley and provide a welcome lift after the firm last month fell victim to thieves in a £210,000 steel raid.

Andrew Workman, estimating manager, said the company hopes to benefit from what it describes as a construction boom in the learning sector, with universities looking to improve facilities.

He said: “These new contracts underline our reputation and we’re seeing a definite upward curve in education contracts at the moment, with particularly universities looking to expand.

 

“Newcastle, Durham, Teesside, Leeds, Lincoln, York, Warwick, Coventry, Birmingham and Bristol universities are all building, and we’re tendering for a lot of work in that sector, which is very promising.”
