A few words about our brilliant team.

We also practice a Continuous Professional Development programme for all our staff to further our team’s professional skills and understanding. 

A word from the Director


“Our company has been built on a strong belief that transparency, honesty and clear communication is the key to successful building projects. I’d like to think we continue to be a locally conscious, down to earth firm with a big vision to lead, improve and raise the standard of building in Cornwall.”
– Kurt Richards MCIOB

A promise to raise standards within the Construction Industry.

We have made an ongoing commitment to the core values of  the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS). The CCS and ourselves strive to change the way that the public and businesses view the Construction Industry. Over the past few years we have been awarded Bronze, Silver and reached Gold standard in 2020. We are immensely proud and will continue to dedicate our efforts to polishing the appearance of our company and the Construction Industry as a whole.

We have also been awarded Chartered Company Membership with the Chartered Institute of Building, further defining us as leaders in our part of the industry.

A shared love for the Cornish landscape.

We were determined to support local companies during our 2020 re-brand and chose to partner with Leow Creative and Falmouth-based Cornish artist Claire-Rose Corbett. Our intricate and detailed illustrations have been hand-drawn, and highlight our passion for detail and of course, Cornwall. We understand the beauty of our Cornish landscapes and seascapes capture peoples hearts and building a home here is a dream for many. Claire’s drawings truly do capture the magic of living in Cornwall.
