Surgo Construction (Surgo), one of the region’s leading independent building contractors, has announced the appointment of a senior estimator at its Newcastle head office.

Following a 13-year career with the regional office of a national contractor, Jamie Graham has joined Surgo’s established estimating team in this key role.

Speaking about his new appointment, Jamie said:

“Surgo Construction has a great reputation as a leading contractor in the region working for a diverse range of clients in sectors spanning education, social housing and commercial developments, so I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to join the team.”

Outside his day job Jamie is the regional chairman of the Lord’s Taverners Northumberland and Durham branch, a charity which supports young people through sport.

Welcoming Jamie to Surgo, Jeff Alexander added:

“I am pleased to announce Jamie’s arrival. We continue to see an increase in the number of tendering opportunities we are handling and his experience, combined with that of the rest of the team, will play a part in converting those opportunities into successful contract wins.”

Surgo is currently on site at Newcastle’s Royal Grammar School and Durham University working on two refurbishment schemes.
