N B Clark’s first work was carried out in the mid 60’s by Norman Braithwaite Clark following his move down to Morpeth from his home town of Branxton in Northumberland to work for William Leech in the period of building Kirkhill and Loansdean estates in Morpeth. He then took the decision to carry out works for customers and N B Clark was formed in 1965. He then went on to carry out various building projects for local people in the Morpeth area and built up a good reputation. He set up new offices and yard in Coopies Lane Industrial Estate on a plot of land bought from the Council, in which we carried out operations from there until 2006, when we moved to new purpose built premises along the road in Coopies Haugh.
As the years passed and we carried out projects, the numbers of employees expanded employing local people and providing apprenticeships for young people including his two sons Jeffrey & Duncan who served apprenticeships in Bricklaying & Joinery respectively.
In the mid to late 90’s projects carried out were the likes of Olivers Mill an inner town development in Morpeth, mixed number of unit developments for Housing Associations throughout Northumberland from Rochester in Otterburn, Hexham, Newcastle upon Tyne up to Berwick upon Tweed.
The turn of the century saw the founding of the development side of the business and Clark Homes Ltd was formed and started producing homes for sale in which a strong partnership was formed with Johnnie Johnson Housing Association, most notably at Belford where we went on to build 90 houses and bungalows for rent and purchase in the village, and are still currently building homes in Belford.
N B Clark currently turnover approximately 9-10 million pounds each year, largely by their employed personnel, and pride themselves on being able to cover most aspects of construction from demolition to painting the front door by their own staff. We do rely on sub-contractors for specialist trades like Mechanical & Electrical, Roof slating, and Painting & Decorating, but we have excellent companies which we have worked with over the years.
We can cover construction projects from Tyne & Wear across to Haltwhistle and up to the Scottish Borders. We are run by Directors - brothers Jeffrey Clark and Duncan Clark, along with trusted managerial staff who have joined us over the years. We are a company with an excellent knowledge of a broad range of construction services as you will see by exploring our website, and are extremely adaptable to our customer requirements and we look forward to any enquiries from visitors to our website.
Thank you and enjoy your visit,
Jeffrey and Duncan Clark
