Proudly based in Exeter, we cover all of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Working on building sites for nearly 50 years has seen the business expand, not only in terms of location but also the trades we offer. Here is an exciting and modern show home for Tilia Homes in Templecombe, just five miles from Wincanton. We carried out the drylining, decorating and ceramic tiling on this new property

Carpentry Team Win New Site
For the 5th month in a row at least one new site has been added to our carpentry order book. This division has gone from strength to strength in the last six months with the ever growing number of sites, all for different house builders in different locations. We currently have over 500 plots to build with more being added each month. The latest addition is with Bellway Homes in Willand. Fox Mill Gardens is a development of homes in the beautiful village of Willand, Devon. Offering 3, 4, and 5-bedroom homes in a unique location, this development will appeal to first-, second-, and third-time buyers. Fox Mill Gardens will showcase our stunning Artisan specification, as well as offer plenty of public open space and attractive view
Congratulations to our Carpentry team on winning this prestigious site. Mid-Devon is a prime location for us having recently completed our carpentry contracts on sites in Tiverton, Cullompton and currently working on our long-term site in Honiton. With long lines of continuous work we are always on the look out for time-served site based carpenters with both employed and self-employed roles available.
Drylining Team Join Decorators & Tilers at Avalon
Last week our drylining division were asked to take on a site in Glastonbury where their current contractor was failing to meet time and quality targets. We are already undertaking the decorating and ceramic tiling on this site and to have our drylining team working in parallel to our decorators is what we do best.
We were delighted when we were selected to work on the site as we have decently won contracts for new sites in Templecombe, Yeovil and others across Somerset. Well done to our drylining division and keep up the good work.
If you have a development coming up in Somerset please contact us about working with you or for trades people looking for work in the area give us a call!
Health & Safety Audit Launch
This month we see our tech-savvy team launch a new Health & Safety audit app which will be rolled out across the company. The audit app, similar to that our of quality check audit, will be further reporting and tightening of both health & safety but also welfare on the sites. These will be carried out by our Health & Safety Director and Manager quarterly.
This new innovative app will help to keep a simple but effective check on our operatives, plant and tools regularly in an effective and efficient manner. These reports will then be looked over, issues highlighted and actioned in our Company Health, Safety and Welfare meetings. These reports are instantly stored to our system for anyone in the company to see and share with those associated to the site.
Carpentry Business Booms!
A new month, a new site start for our Carpentry division. This month we see Gould Homes’ new site in Dawlish added to our order book. Since the recruitment of Liam as our Carpentry Manager we have seen an upward trend of new sites added month on month. Liam comments ‘It’s great to see, this is fantastic. The whole business is fully behind me in growing this part of the company and I am really proud of the work from the carpenters on site, particularly their positive reaction to our in-house site audits but also the part the office team play in the surveying and material ordering.’
Gould Homes are building 18 new homes in Dawlish. We are really looking forward to working with a new client in an area we have built hundreds of houses in the past and adding our carpentry touch to them.
