Who we are

We are a modern business with traditional values:

Client focused – we build relationships too, not just buildings, and deliver what we promise.  This is evident through our level of repeat business, currently in excess of 75%.

Experienced – established in 1997, we apply our experience to delivering quality buildings in a safe environment – we have even won awards for it from Vale of Glamorgan Council and Carmarthen Civic Society for restoration work at Old Guildhall, Carmarthen.

Innovative and creative – it is our aim to keep ahead of regulatory changes and pro-actively problem solve to add value to our projects.  We excel at projects with high technical content/M&E, and those projects where the building is required to remain operational throughout refurbishment.

Our People – we help our people to reach their full potential through training, development, equality and safety.
