Liam Timmins, managing director of the tree surgery company founded by his father, Stan Timmins, is driving his arboricultural business to new heights with an ever-expanding consultancy services portfolio.
Liam decided to diversify his tree surgery business to take on more commercial work during the last year. Previously working on domestic projects, Stan Timmins and Sons is now taking on commercial clients.
The company’s client list now includes national construction companies such as Tolent Construction and Persimmon Homes.
Liam explained: “We carry out sensitive site clearance work on new building sites before construction commences. On many of the commercial projects we’ve taken on we’ve conducted full surveys..”
Liam manages commercial projects from start to finish. He provides full reports to his clients as well as carrying out the work he recommends.
Despite the recent expansion of the company, still carries out domestic and private development work. It also uses the same principles as those used on commercial projects.
Liam said: “Our domestic and private clients are just as important and challenging as the commercial projects we carry out. We offer a one-stop-shop for small developers and householders carrying out extension. If there are any arboriculture issues involved, we can help.”
Liam, who lives in Consett, travels to the business base in Blyth every day to carry out his work and has invested heavily in the business in recent years. Some of the specialist equipment used by the company has been replaced recently, including a chipper and a new vehicle for towing and transporting.
With some new, major contracts in the pipeline for Spring 2019, Liam will be taking on new staff in the coming months to help meet the demand for the company’s services.
One such project which Liam is due to commence very soon involves managing the trees and vegetation at a site in Gosforth. The Coach House on The Drive is owned by family run McDougall Dodds and is going to be converted into luxury homes by The Fifty-Two Group. Stan Timmins and Sons have already undertaken a full site survey and produced an arboricultural report for this site.
Liam said: “2019 is going to be another exciting year for Stan Timmins and Son, and I’m looking forward to taking on more staff to fulfil our projects.”
