Based in bespoke premises in Bishop Auckland, VEST Construction (LIVECO Ltd) is a privately owned Building & Civil Engineering company which targets construction projects in the North East region up to a value of 2.5m.


It is our policy to employ skilled tradesmen, operatives and apprentices in the various building disciplines and help them develop their skills further through training. We currently employ around 45 such personnel covering most building trades.


Our initial aim was to achieve an annual turnover of between 3m and 5m within the first 3 years. We have now been trading for ten years and continued to build on our success. Our turnover has steadly grown to around 8.5m. Our aim is to maintain a turnover of around 8m by continuing to give our clients, design teams and consultants an excellent service.


We believe our success is due to our customer focus and strategy to bring a complete and professional service to all of our customers. The feedback from our repeat clients has proven our believe that historically these qualities were very difficult to find especially on the smaller projects.


We have recently renewed our ISO 9001 with Ocean Certification who are one of the UK's leading UKAS accredited certification bodies. We are delighted to announce that we have now achieved a certified Integrated Management System and hold standards for Quality (ISO 9001:2008), Environmental Management (ISO 14001:2004) and Occupational Health & Safety (OHSAS 18001:2007).
