About Us

Who We Are

Founded in 2001 by Alex Mcconnell, we have grown to become one of the most trusted building contractors across South Shields and the surrounding areas. When Alex started AFM he wanted to work differently to other construction companies around, focusing instead on customer satisfaction and quality workmanship above all else, an area many companies were lacking at the time.

This has paid off for AFM, we have now entered our 16th year and have served hundreds of local businesses and residential customers around South Shields, and have many positive reviews to back that up. If you need any construction related services, feel free to give Alex, the founder, a call on his mobile phone, he is 100% involved in the day to day running of the business.
