Two companies have marked their respective 40th anniversaries by joining forces with Marston's to build a £2m pub in North Yorkshire.

After a £2m investment from pubco Marston’s, Seymour Civil Engineering and Barnes Construction joined forces for the creation of the Longacre pub at the Skelton Park retail park.

Multiple operator Marston's will oversee the establishment, which is the 38th pub Barnes Construction has worked on for the pubco.

Seymour Civil Engineering acted as the civil engineering contractor for the development.

This involved completing the earthworks, laying the foundations, installing the drainage system, and creating a gabion wall around the site perimeter to manage soil erosion.

Seymour also laid the kerbs and paved a new entrance to a 50-space car park.

A real triumph

More than 45 new jobs have been created from the development in the East Cleveland area.

Seymour Civil Engineering site manager Sarah Jopling said: “This project, in partnership with Barnes Construction, has been a real triumph.

“It was completed on time and on budget, and to see the pub finished and open to the public is something both the teams from Seymour and Barnes are very proud of.”

“This is a special year for both companies as we’re both celebrating our 40th anniversary. To be able to work alongside Barnes, a company that is so well respected in the industry and has been growing from strength to strength for 40 years, is an honour.”

Work completed on time

Barnes Constructions senior contracts manager David Faichney said: “This is the first time we have partnered with Seymour Civil Engineering and the company’s professionalism has ensured the project has been a real success.

“We have built up a fantastic relationship with the team we’ve worked alongside on-site. We have bounced off each other perfectly and their commitment to quality, health and safety on-site, and completing work on time, has been very impressive and has made them a real pleasure to work with over the past seven months.”

Marston’s Longacre pub development project manager Jordan Quincey said: “It’s fantastic to see the Longacre ready to open, and we’re exciting for next week when the doors officially open to the people of Skelton.

“Marston’s looks for sites with large infrastructure and the site at Skelton fitted the bill perfectly. Alongside the Skelton Park shopping complex, Asda supermarket, and the new Aldi store that is under construction, we felt there was a real opportunity for a family-friendly pub.”
