Company History


Established in 1945 for the first 15 years, with the urgent need for housing after the war, the company was heavily involved in house building construction in excess of 100 houses per year. This was supplemented with commercial projects for shops, garage showrooms and workshops, public houses, offices and farm buildings.


In the early 1960's the company added to its expertise constructing buildings for the food industry. Upon joining the EEC we studied all the new regulations relating to the food industry which accelerated our involvement in building food processing factories for red meat, poultry and vegetables together with abattoirs, cold stores and related amenities and offices all of which continues to form a major part of our workload today.


The company is also experienced in building schools, commercial and private swimming pools with amenities, church extensions, surgeries, hospital extensions, large one off houses, sports centres and work on listed buildings.
