G F Tomlinson

G F Tomlinson bring a wealth of local knowledge, experience and a collaborative approach to deliver construction projects across the North Midlands, including Nottingham, Lincoln, Derby and Stoke-on-Trent.

As a family run business with bases in Derby, Birmingham and Lincoln, they are one of the largest independent contractors in the region. Working together with you - and supported by our teams - they create strong, long-term relationships, investing time and expertise in pre-construction research and liaison to deliver a high quality, competitively valued project.

Early involvement and knowledge sharing means they will establish cost-effective recommendations, spanning build feasibility, innovation, value management and risk management.

They are committed to local spend and creating social value, meeting your specific needs and those of your end users. They will complete your projects on time, within budget and to an exceptional quality, whilst creating socio-economic benefits for your communities, so that you can be safe in the knowledge that your project will be delivered to the highest possible standard.

Because we appointed an approved contractor through the framework, we could have an open continual dialogue with G F Tomlinson before the work started, which saved a considerable amount of time before detailed designs of the four facilities were drawn up. This allowed us to develop a trusted relationship with them from the beginning.
