Emery are a family-run building contractor located in Bath, established as a business in 1947 by three brothers: George Arnold Emery, Lewis Emery and Brian Emery. The firm has been trading for over 70 years and is now owned and operated by a further two generations of the Emery family. We carry out most of our work in Bath and the surrounding areas.
The company has kept expanding over the years and employs many experienced and skilled craftsmen and tradesmen. In 2016 we relocated our main offices from Darlington Wharf to Bathford Works, where we recently completed the construction of our new office space along with three separate industrial spaces.
We carry out all forms of building and construction work, ranging from large new build projects to maintenance and repair. We have a large workforce, that we employ directly, including a wide range of experienced tradesmen. A lot of our work comes from repeat business with clients, highlighting our high level of customer satisfaction.
Refurbishment: We complete refurbishment projects regularly in Bath and throughout the surrounding areas. Our refurbishment work ranges from small kitchens and bathrooms to complete townhouses. Here we conserve traditional Georgian features that are distinctive to Bath, whilst installing modern comforts such as new heating and smart home systems.
New Builds: We carry out a large number of new build projects every year. These projects range from small extensions to help domestic clients maximise living space, to larger bespoke new build homes for clients who wish to create something truly unique from the ground up. We also occasionally build-out offices for growing companies, and have recently been commissioned to build the new Send a Cow offices by the Duchy of Cornwall in Newton St. Loe.
Restoration: Through the years we have carried out a number of very interesting restoration projects. These projects range from repair work, ornate joinery and masonry to complete overhauls of historic monuments such as Beckford’s Tower & Museum in Bath. We maintain close working relationships with a number of specialist architectural practices in order to help conserve and restore ecclesiastical and religious buildings. We carry out a large amount of work for the Bath Abbey.
We also have an in-house joinery service, creating everything from bespoke staircases to hand crafted sash windows.
