The company now has 5 regional offices and covers the North West, Cumbria and North East regions, strongly positioned within the growing Northern Powerhouse hub.

As an RICS regulated Supply Chain Partner, Solomons works with many of the region’s major engineering employers, providing a robust and stable pipeline of future work to all its PAYE staff team. We have weathered the COVID-19 storm to date with continued expansion and did not furlough a single member of our team, due in equal parts to our business determination and the strong client relationships we have cultivated over the past 20 years. Our people are seen as visibly effective members of the project team, who go the extra mile for their clients, and this means we stand out significantly from other practices, whilst serving our clients on core frameworks, specialist contracting and mega projects.
Due to our strong brand and growing reputation, Solomons now serves multiple sectors across the region, including infrastructure, renewables, decommissioning and defence, and we are now looking to build on our capacity and capability to meet current and future demands across the North. Solomons regional project expertise is aligned to core areas of the UK (COVID-19) recovery programme and we feel confident our team of exceptional high performers, can surpass the expectations of our key clients and be fundamental in supporting the bounce back of the engineering and construction industry.
