Crafting your ideal business space

Carlton Contracts was first established as a specialist installer of suspended ceilings and partitions.

Over the next ten years Carlton Contracts was employed as specialist sub-contractor on some of the North West’s most prestigious construction contracts.

In 2000, Carlton Contracts acquired Tom Finney Acoustics, then the oldest suspended ceiling and partitioning contractor in the North West, to augment this service to its existing construction clients, whilst Carlton Contracts diversified into the commercial fit out and refurbishment market.

In 2002, Carlton Contracts completed construction of Anchorage Business Park including Gordon House, the new 4,000 sq. ft. office and manufacturing facility which is now at the centre of all operations.

Operating from these purpose built facilities within Preston Docklands, we offer a full office fit out service, enabling you to have all partitions, ceilings, electrical, heating and data cabling completed from a single source – a true one stop shop. We will co-ordinate all your required office fit out building work, right through to hanging artwork on the walls.

We have an enviable list of satisfied and repeat order clients which is a tangible testament to the quality and level of service we offer that makes us the preferred choice for our clients.

Our contracting solutions cover all scenarios, including Cat A and Cat B interior fit-out, refurbishment when you are in occupation, and niche projects. Our strength is in our multi-disciplinary team, which means that we can cover every eventuality, including when issues arise that were not anticipated in the initial brief. Our experience is backed up by industry-leading accreditations, ensuring that we can deliver the highest standards in quality, sustainability and health and safety.

Why chose Carlton:

  • All our partition erectors are directly employed, supplemented by approved CIS sub-contractors where necessary.
  • All operatives are CSCS registered, and all operatives hold PASMA and IPAF training certificates.
