Working with old friends at Newcastle Central

Next year, P Plunkett Tiling Contractors will celebrate forty years in business and Howe Green is very proud to have worked with them for more than 25 of those years.
The firm's current chairman Paddy Plunkett started the company in 1975 in the North East of England. From humble beginnings it has grown into a firm with national coverage and an industry-wide reputation for excellent workmanship and service.

P Plunkett's skilled teams have installed Howe Green access covers in a wide variety of settings across the UK. Most recently and closer to home, they fulfilled the flooring contract at Newcastle Central station as part of a project to renovate the heritage railway building.

newcastle central station - howe green p plunkettAn East Coast/Network Rail alliance commissioned the £8.6m refurbishment which included pedestrianisation and glazing the station's 150-year old portico, doubling the retail space and improving passenger facilities with a new travel centre, improved toilets and clearer signage. When main contractor Miller Construction needed to access essential building services running under the floor of the Grade One listed building, P.Plunkett were quick to put our name forward. Mark Forster, Commercial Director at P Plunkett said;

"We have never had any issues with Howe Green in all the years we've worked together,"

"They make a great quality product, give a reliable service and do what they promise to do. That still goes a long way in business today and we knew we could recommend them for this project with complete confidence".

p plunkett tilingIn three phases, P.Plunkett installed our 1050 Series heavy-duty stainless steel access covers in single and multipart units into a new 600m2 area of Quiligotti Terrazzo flooring. Some were manufactured to order at a reduced depth of 70mm and with a strengthened base plate to a D400 loading. These modifications to standard specs were required to allow for shallow conditions on site and provide a more than adequate loading for service vehicles travelling in and out of the new retail space at the entrance to the station.
