Fred Mence (Construction) Ltd was co-founded by former MD Fred Mence in 1989, Fred is still involved in an advisory role in the day to day running of the company. We immediately engaged in civil engineering works in the North East and throughout northern England with works covering large diameter deep drainage, mass concrete structures and hardstandings, road construction and hard landscaping for local authorities and major contractors.

As time passed, we offered a groundworks service to facilitate a full infrastructure package to our clients, which was swiftly followed by the addition of a surfacing department.  North East plant hire and North East haulage also followed in turn, and today Fred Mence (Construction) Ltd offers a fully self-sufficient service to our clients.

We are members of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association, the Road Haulage Association, and the Construction Plant-hire Association. We are accredited and approved by Constructionline, the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme and NHBC Safemark

We are currently approved by ISOQAR for ISO 9001:2015, Highways Sector Scheme 16 for Road Surfacing, ISO 14001:2015 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007. Currently working towards approval to EN ISO45001:2018 for our Health & Safety system and we currently hold a RoSPA Gold Medal for our health & safety performance.
