Austin Newport Group

Management Contractors


Austin Newport Limited is the sister company of John Austin and Partners Limited and was specifically formed to operate in the specialist fields of Restoration, Conservation and Conversion of Listed Buildings as a response to our clients' specific needs and the changing nature of the Construction Industry.

Austin Newport is most active and experienced in the field of Historic Restoration - the majority of the contracts awarded to Austin Newport have involved Grade I or Grade II Listed Buildings

An inclusive process

The Management contracting model completely integrates the Professional Team with the Construction Team at an early stage to ensure best value through value engineering, competitive tendering, accurate early construction planning and pro-active management.

The success of any building project depends on the quality of the information produced. With Austin Newport as the Management Contractor, the management and flow of information is constantly monitored and cost checked to ensure that problems do not occur and give rise to spurious and expensive contractual claims.
