T Sullivan


At T Sullivan reputation means everything for us, We believe this is why we have been winning tenders since 1990. Below are some testimonials from our clients.

Sullivan engineering were requested to construct a working platform, complete with access to an existing steel framed building at its salt gritting depot, to allow operatives high level access for cleaning vehicles, Chris and the team provided all detailed drawings for approval, The works on site were carried out to a very high standard, taking into account all the relevant H&S aspects as the works were carried out during gritting operation’s. Highly recommended

Sullivan Engineering were awarded the Secondary / Sundry Steelwork Package, value approximately £250k on St John Bosco Arts College, an £18m all girl Catholic school for LCC.

They performed exceptionally well on what was a particularly demanding project with exacting deadlines. They could be relied upon to carry out their works with the minimum of fuss and coordinated the works effectively. They proved to be flexible and also brought their considerable experience to the fore.

Sullivan Engineering have worked on several VCUK projects over the last 10 years and this repetition of business demonstrates their ability to perform well, to budget and furthermore achieve programme.

Their attitude to Health and Safety is refreshing and they perform considerably better than others in their field.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Sullivan Engineering for future work and their subcontract performance scores reflect this

TSE have performed very well on King David Campus with well produced drawings being submitted and fabricating then installing high quality balustrades in a timely and professional manner. Their technical knowledge and assistance in problem solving have been invaluable and kept the job on programme when unforseen problems arose. The operatives are very competent and always complied with site rules and relevant health and safety guidelines and worked well as part of the site team

Sam Finch

I have employed T Sullivan Engineering for around 6 years on a number projects. I have found them to be one of the premier metal work and steel work suppliers in the region, They have been able to react and keep pace with the ever changing programme demands of a large construction site. They have been able to full fill our small but critical items thought to large metal work / steel work requirements; I would have no problem in recommending them to others

Major contactor

Mellwood have a longstanding relationship with T. Sullivan Engineering dating back over 10 years as one of our preferred suppliers. During this time, they have carried out many successful installations for us, including ornamental metalwork, incidental steel work and full steel frames.

We find that Chris & his team are extremely proactive in problem-solving, often identifying anomalies in design drawings at an early stage, allowing solutions to be incorporated into the works rather than addressing them during or after installation.

Their prices are almost always competitive, they are reliable and honest, and they approach Site Health & Safety seriously and responsibly.

In short, they easily meet the criteria we require when employing specialist subcontractors and we hope that our relationship will continue long into the future.

Paul Mellor
Director, Mellwood Construction

As a Structural Engineering Practice we have worked with T. Sullivan Engineering on a number of projects over many years. We have always been impressed with the quality of their fabrication details and with the skill and efficiency they employ during the installation/erection stage. Whenever the project has involved the installation of steelwork within very confined locations and where the timescales are very tight, T Sullivan has always been the preferred steelwork contractor. We have recommended Sullivan’s to many clients and main contractors and the feedback has always been positive. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Sullivan’s for any future projects.

Peter Moffat
William Jones & Partners

T Sullivan Engineering have undertaken specialist and secondary steelwork on several projects I have been involved with. The work and service that they provide are always carried out to the highest quality and produced on time. The service is well planned, professional and safe, I would certainly recommend and use again for future projects.

They have design facilities, and are able to offer a diverse range of products from simple platforms to fixtures for our printing machines.

They are locally based, delivering quality workmanship and have proven to be a supportive partner by giving a rapid response to our demanding expectations and the right price.

I have had a business relationship with T Sullivan Engineering for over 15 years and have awarded them contracts for large and small values. I have always found the service and professionalism constant whatever the size of project. I have appreciated the service and assistance they have provided to us over the years, and we would have no problem in recommending their services to others and hope our business relationship continues for many years to come.

Neil Cooper, Senior Quantity surveyor

I have worked with T Sullivan Engineering on a number of projects and have always found them to be very helpful and proactive. They are a good, honest and reliable company. Chris, Duncan and the rest of the team are very friendly and easy to work with, and work with us to produce schemes that both maximise space and usability and minimise cost and disruption. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and to recommend them to others.

T. Sullivan Engineering have conducted various projects within and in the vicinity of patient areas. Their standard of work from initial brief to project completion and compliance with our H&S requirements has always been to the highest standard. Their operatives carry out works in a safe and compliant manner with excellent quality of finished product and I would recommend the company.

T Sullivan Engineering were contracted to design and install the secondary steel works package on St John Bosco Arts College.

They have proven to be a very reliable contractor and worked with the construction team and the SE, providing solutions to some quite difficult detailing issues. The solutions provided were always scrutinized as best cost solutions by T Sullivan Engineering prior to them being offered.

The team were proactive on and off site. Their performance across the board was excellent, from Health and Safety to installation through to final account. I would like to thank Chris and his team for their collective efforts in achieving a very demanding programme.


T.Sullivan Engineering have now worked on two of my project, the current one being a £2.2million refurbishment to a sports centre with the steelwork package to the value of £50k. I was very keen to use them on my current project as they did such a good job for me on the first scheme.

This package was all based around providing new steelwork support framing to internal spaces of the existing building to replace load bearing walls being demolished as part of the scheme. The surveying of the existing structure therefore had to be highly accurate and the project required a quick turn around on development of drawing for approval by consultants as well as manufacture of steelwork following approval. T.Sullivan met these demands without a single glitch.

In my opinion this company have established themselves extremely well from the top down. Chris the director is a real pleasure to work with on the basis of good communication, meeting demanding timescales and working closely with the main contractor throughout the project, no matter how pressured the project may be.

All T.Sullivan site operatives on my projects have also been very easy to work with and you just know from the outset their aim is to handover a quality job, also demonstrating a proactive approach to any issues that may arise and have a very positive attitude toward health & safety aspects of the job.

I would personally recommend T.Sullivan Engineering to anyone looking for contractors in this field of work and will look forward to working with them again on a future scheme.
