Longworth is one of the UK’s leading envelope contractors, offering a complete turnkey service of design, installation and project management.
Over the years, we’ve become renowned for being an industry innovator. Building on our established reputation for being master craftsmen in the use of traditional metal products such as zinc, copper and stainless steel, since 1999 we have extended our skills and expertise to cover the whole of the external building envelope. And all to the highest of specifications.
Experience and detailed market knowledge of customer needs, supplier skills, legislative and environmental drivers and the emergence of new technologies have all contributed to our current market standing.
We combine this with outstanding customer support, safe working practices, technical understanding and quality workmanship - all of which have been achieved through constant investment in training and certification of our people.
At Longworth, we have a proven track record of working with all of the major UK developers to complete projects on time, on budget and on demand.
Offering complete turnkey services — design, installation and project management.
Our team can provide valuable product and design advice at any stage of a project. With years of experience and long-standing relationships with product manufacturers, our engineers ensure that projects remain within budget without compromising architectural integrity.
We utilise a collaborative project management programme to ensure we deliver projects on time, within budget, and most importantly, safely.
Our in-house fabrication service can deliver a wide range of high quality bespoke roofing and cladding solutions, utilising computerised folding and cutting machinery to ensure a precise and consistent end product.
The latest computerised design systems equip our design team with the ability to provide clients, architects and main contractors with a complete plan for the construction project. For the more intricate designs, we have the facilities to produce a 3D image to assist with the design. All of our designers have been trained up to BIM Level 2.
For each project we provide a strict planning service. This includes producing detailed plans, method statements and risk assessments. The end result is a structured project following a critical path. We communicate with the client at every step of the way and our contracts manager is assigned to oversee the project, co-ordinating between the client, design, and site teams.
We commit ourselves to providing the most economical service available. We are not tied into any one supplier or system which means value engineering is always available. Our partnering mentality is ideal for those who wish us to become involved from an early stage, which can often result in cost reduction of other trades such as steelwork, masonry, etc.
We have extensive experience of working within a range of sectors.
Over the years, Longworth has undertaken a wide range of roofing and cladding works, from office space to state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

Modern and efficient transport infrastructure is as important today as it has ever been.
The range of building types in the leisure industry means that we have to be adaptable and competent in a wide range of methods, design, products and environments.
