Established nearly a century ago, this regional building contractor undertakes new build and refurbishment projects throughout the Midlands and southern England via a network of strategically located offices.

The fusion of traditional values with modern practices has enabled them to develop lucrative relationships with many framework clients across the Local Authority, MoD, Education, Health, Custodial, Housing and Private sectors and this in turn has resulted in company growth to £125 million P/A in recent years.

The southern regional office is based between Swindon and Reading and contributes around £40 million to the business and this is derived from undertaking traditional and D&B schemes of between £500k and £10m. Many contracts are won by negotiation and they constantly carry a full order book of profitable opportunities.

A friendly, open door ethos characterises the business and they achieve results by pulling together as a team so this is a quality they also look for when recruiting new members of staff.
The local office (South Coast) is certainly a hot prospect as it has already sailed past it’s £20m regional turnover target and likely to be on track for being the fastest growing construction business in the area.

Initial project will be a £8million care home based in Woking. Working with the same client and team the next 2 projects are in Weybridge and Cobham.
