Established since 1986, Brick-Tie Preservation was born from a family damp proofing and preservation company, which had already been established for ten years previously. Initially the business serviced wall tie replacement and structural repairs, with the parent company taking responsibility for the damp proofing, basement waterproofing and timber treatment sectors.
This all changed in 1991, when the parent company was sold and Brick-Tie became independent and able to serve all our specialist sectors. The family ownership continues though, with Bryan and Julie Hindle still at the helm – between them they have 70 years experience of the industry.
At the time of writing, the current size of the business is just over £1m per year, being roughly split 50/50 between the wall tie/structural side of the firm and our damp proofing, timber preservation and basement waterproofing activities.
There are 14 full time employees plus two Directors working from our main Yorkshire office in Sherburn in Elmet (where we moved to from our central Leeds office back in 2003). We also are expanding into South Yorkshire with our new office in Sheffield. Meet our team here
The specialist nature of our work takes us right across Yorkshire, and sometimes even nationally for some of our specialised structural work, such as Cintec anchor and Helifix projects.
Whilst we work for many domestic clients, our commercial clients account for around 50% of our work. These include large, respected and well known organisation such as:
Companies are just names and numbers on a registration document in companies house. What really matters are the people running the organisation and the employees who work for the business and it’s customers.
Over 40 years in the industry he loves, our managing director Bryan Hindle has learned a lot. He knows that people are the key to success and well being. His style of management and his customer service ethic has come from this long service, experiencing the ups and downs of the economy over the decades, seeing people succeed and sadly fail too. Management and marketing fads come and go, but as Bryan says “The fundamentals of running a good business are looking after the people you employ and putting employees right alongside clients, at the centre of your attention”.
This is why Brick-Tie are Investors in People and why we are multi award winners for our staff training and employee development. Bryan knows that happy, qualified, well paid and enthusiastic employees naturally give great service – especially if they are trained to do that well. They care about their company and know that it’s customers who keep the show on the road.
Our extensive and well honed skill set means that we’ve become a useful resource for commercial surveyors and engineers needing innovative and specialised knowledge. So much so that our regular CPD training events are a popular attraction for build environment professionals needing to polish their skills, or keep up to date with the latest in restoration technology. Our MD is regularly asked to talk about these issues around the country, including professional CPD conferences, RICS matrics and Leeds Beckett University. He is also an examiner for the PCA national CSRT examinations. His surveying team are amongst the best qualified in the country and are waiting to help you.
