Durham metalwork firm secures six-figure contract at redevelopment of historic site

A local metalwork and fabrication company has secured a six-figure contract to work on the redevelopment of a historic County Durham site.

Family-run firm Steelcraft will deliver a range of metalwork for Miller Homes’ new housing estate at the historic Lambton Park site in Chester-le-Street.

The £100k two-year contract will see the firm design and produce balconies, gates and handrails for the residential site.

Matthew Rodgers, Steelcraft’s managing director, commented: “We’re thrilled to have won this contract and to continue working with Miller Homes. The work represents around a 5 percent increase in our orders and will also contribute to safeguarding the jobs of our 30-strong workforce.”

“Lambton Park’s redevelopment will uncover this hidden gem, which closed to the public nearly 40 years ago, and preserve its stunning historic features and heritage.

“We are excited to be involved in the home building project within Lambton Park, which will be an incredibly special place in which to live, work and visit.”

Andrew Finnigan, regional commercial director at Miller Homes, added: “We have worked with Steelcraft on a number of projects and are delighted to have them on board to contribute to our landmark development at Lambton Park.

“The development…will offer a variety of high quality new homes in a truly unique location and will perfectly complement the wider vision for the estate as a highly desirable place to live, work and visit.”
