Who We Are

About Sutcliffe

We are an independent Yorkshire-based company with a solid reputation for providing our clients with quality solutions and adding value whatever surprises a build throws your way.

As principal contractors, we manage entire projects from design to ground-works, build and complete fit-out. We are steel-frame building specialists with a 3D modelling team and our own steel fabrication plant.

Fifty years in business have earned us the trust and respect of leading architects, construction professionals and the business community across Yorkshire and the north of England. The majority of our business comes through referrals by satisfied clients and partners.

How we work

We understand building from the ground up and take a practical approach to helping our partners get the best result. Our team is passionate about construction, embraces the latest technology and believes in collaboration at every stage.

We excel at providing design and build improvements based on a ‘value-engineering’ concept that can save clients’ time and money.

Our service is highly personal, delivered by our own highly trained teams with subcontractors used for specialised tasks only. With direct access to decision-makers, solutions are quickly found ensuring a dynamic building process. We’re proud of our sites which we run meticulously – and are open to clients at all times.
