We are a family business based in Forton, Lancashire established since 1974. Covering all aspects of construction both domestic and commercial.

We have been providing a professional and quality construction service since 1974. Started by my father, I (Alan Wright) joined after leaving Garstang High in 1986. I then attended college in Preston to gain my Advanced City & Guild BTEC in Carpentry and Joinery. My father and I swapped roles in 2006, making me the boss (so called!). My better half also became company secretary at this time. My son, Daniel who also attended Garstang High School joined us in 2008. He attended Preston College to obtain his Site Carpentry NVQ level 3 and Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Construction Building. My father retired (so called!) in 2011, so we took on Rhys. A former Garstang High pupil, he joined us in 2011 and again attended Preston College to obtain his Advanced Level 3 Bricklaying Diploma.
We have been involved in a wide variety of construction aspects:
Barn conversion
New builds
Conservation and listed building works
Swimming pools
Tennis courts
Commercial property
Dentist surgery's
Structural alterations
the list goes on...
We work closely with a select few sub contractors covering every trade. We offer a FMB master builder warranty on larger projects. All jobs can be project managed, sourcing as local materials as possible, no corners are cut what so ever!
