The company took on larger projects along with additional staff, turning into a significant local contractor and employer, with 160 staff and a turnover of £10 million. The workload and client base expanded, with work from the local authority being complemented by regular contracts with the Department for Health, Housing Associations and Smith & Nephew, eventually extending to work with East Riding Council and authorities south of the River Humber.

The workload and client base expanded, with work from the local authority being complemented by regular contracts with the Department for Health, Housing Associations and Smith & Nephew, eventually extending to work with East Riding Council and authorities south of the River Humber.

As workload grew, the company eventually changed direction becoming a management contractor developing a wide and sustainable supply chain of local subcontractors allowing the business to deliver larger and more complex projects. The company developed a more sophisticated structure of management, and also brought estimating, buying and surveying in-house.
