About Us


In 1983 we progressed from domestic and security fence erectors into the general building trade. Initially as a partnership, building a small development, into the Limited Company we are today.'

We have kept our workforce small as we have found our customers prefer to see the same faces turning up each day throughout their project. Mr Charnley always oversees each job, is a working director and is always on hand to discuss customer's requirements.

A small workforce means less overheads and therefore lower prices for the customer. Everyone on our firm is a working, hands-on member of staff. We can assist you right from the design stage and our quotations are sound; not like some, who issue open-ended estimates.

We deal with all the major builders merchants and only use recognised products. For your peace of mind we have Public Liability Insurance up to 2 million. We are also able to access reclaimed building materials, please see page 4 under services for current items available.
