A construction and civil engineering firm is celebrating 10 years in business with the launch of a new residential brand.

Readstone Construction was established on July 9, 2013, to offer a friendly, customer-focussed approach to clients across the North West region.

During its early days, the business, based in Altham, was primarily recognised for its commercial and industrial design and build projects, a space in which Readstone continues to operate today.

Recently, however, the company has shifted its focus on to high end residential projects and this is the key area they wish to develop as the business enters its next decade.

Simon Whittam, construction director, who has been with the business from the start, said: “Ten years really has flown by and we have worked on some incredible projects during this time.

“It was post-Covid that we recognised a progressive shift towards more residential projects and decided that this is something we would like to now explore further.

“We have an incredibly loyal team of staff and contractors who are ready to join us in our next chapter and we look forward to working with architects and homeowners across Lancashire and Yorkshire in our new Readstone Residential venture.

“We will, of course, still be carrying out commercial projects, providing our clients with the best possible service for the best possible value.”

Recent commercial projects carried out by Readstone include a complete overhaul of Accrington Stanley FC’s facilities, including a reconstruction of two of its stands, build of a £2 million sports hub, new hospitality suite and sports bar, and more.

Recent residential projects include a complete house build in Read in partnership with Blackburn based architects Campbell Driver Partnership, a four-bedroom house build in Hapton with Zara Moon Architects and various new house build and extensions in partnership with Stanton Andrews Architects, Sunderland Peacock and Associates and Peter Hitchen Architects.

Simon added: “We are highly experienced in working with third parties on projects, as well as direct with the client themselves.

“We thank everyone we have worked with to date and look forward to our next exciting chapter.”
