Established in 1991, Highshore Construction is a well established company with over 25 years experience. We are based in Truro, Cornwall and work all over the Cornwall area. We employ a highly respected and skilled team who specialise in conversions, renovations, extensions and new builds, and we work for both residential and commercial clients. The company is currently owned by husband and wife team Martyn (director) and Kath (secretary), and has completed numerous projects to the highest standard.

Martyn aims to ensure that from commencement to completion, all clients are provided with a high standard of workmanship using skilled tradesmen in all aspects of the build. Central to this is good communication between all parties and regular project management.

Most of our contracts are obtained through recommendation by previous customers, architects and engineers, which is a testament to the quality of our work.

To assist our team of masons and carpenters, we hire trusted and dedicated subcontractors who have worked for the company for a number of years. They are experienced in dealing with clients in a sensitive and thoughtful way to ensure that the building process is completed with minimum levels of disruption.

We only use a small selection of subcontractors for the more specialist items like electrical/plumbing installations, who have worked with us on many contracts over a number of years. Our company has a prompt payment policy, allowing us to gain additional service and response from the companies that we work for.

Project planning - We can plan and manage your project from the initial concept through to completion.

Architectural services - Our clients can offer architectural services by recommending known local architects who have worked with our company for many years.

Project management - We can provide a full project management service through our sister company – ESM Services.

Case Studies

Riverside Cottage


Our client requested a self-contained studio bedsit and was insistent that eco-friendly materials were used throughout. We completed the project within the specified time and to a high standard.

CSA Architects, who project managed the contract, submitted this project as an entry into the Local Authority Building Control annual awards. We are pleased to confirm that Highshore Construction obtained a special award for this project.

Conversion of Farmhouse, Tregothnan Estate


This property had been empty for a number of years and needed a full overhaul. We had to apply careful consideration as the building was listed. A number of existing finishes had to be retained or replaced to match the original.

Our work included new concrete floors and the removal of the existing wall plaster, applying damp proof membrane/battens/plasterboard finish. We covered other external wall areas with lime render. We installed new roof coverings and rainwater goods and added complete electric, plumbing and heating installation including underfloor heating. We finished the building with new bath fittings, tiling and decorations.

The project was completed in approximately 9 months and the new owners confirmed that the standards were the highest they had seen.

Fire Damaged Barn near Truro


The existing property had been completely destroyed at first floor level, including the roof. The ground floor area was ruined by smoke damage and water penetration.

The project involved creating a complete new roof structure, installing a concrete beam and block floor and internal partitions throughout. We added new plumbing/electric installations including bathrooms, en-suites and underfloor heating. For the main bedroom and lower lounge area, we installed a large oak frame feature window with triple glazing. Finally, we added purpose made doors and joinery items as well as all floor and wall tiling, wood floors and decoration.

The clients were extremely pleased with the final standard of the workmanship and finish of all interior and exterior aspects of the project.
