Introduction

As a specialist facade contractor, we provide complete building envelope solutions to clients across the UK and Ireland. Established by Michael Clarke in the late ’90s and now managed by son Eugene, Clarke Facades has grown from strength to strength, becoming one of Northern Ireland’s leading facade contractors.

Strategy

Originating from Clarke Brothers Contracts which was founded in 1985 by Michael and Brendan Clarke, M Clarke and Sons Contracts Limited was founded in 1996 by Michael Clarke Senior after the brothers decided to diversify in separate areas of the business.

As can be seen, our company has come a long way. With over 30 years’ experience, we made our name as an expert in the wet trades industry, specialising in plastering and screeds. However, a successful company only remains successful by diversifying, and after completing a number of facades projects this became an area that has been continually developed. 

A successful transition period has seen us completely move away from the wet trade industry and re-brand/name our company – Clarke Facades.

Another key driver for our name change has been our extensive work in England, where we have a growing list of clients, specifically in London and the south of England. These areas are now our key focus.

Charitable Giving

We have a team of generous and eager employees who enjoy giving back to those less fortunate. In 2019, we decided to complete charitable giving on a month by month basis for different charities. We completed a number of monetary and non-monetary fundraisers from sponsored walks and marathons to spring cleans, gave up or free lunch Thursday, volunteered with the elderly, invited friends and family to our coffee morning, completed a shoebox appeal and organised a quiz night. All in all, a successful year of fundraising with the monetary total reaching almost £4,000 alongside our non-monetary initiatives!
