Our History

The First Cove Construction Project

My business has developed from moving to Cornwall 20 years ago, and building my family a home,with my own hands, from start to finish.

After gaining over 30 years’ experience in the building industry as a Chartered Building Surveyor and Contract Director for building companies engaged in all aspects of domestic, commercial, industrial, and hospital projects, I decided I wanted to bring my skills, passion and experience to create a beautiful, modern home. Inspired by the best of local architectural style, I created my home using local materials such as stone, wood and slate.

After I completed my home, it was admired by many people and led to a number of exciting and varied commissions. The business has steadily grown on the basis of a passion for good buildings and the development of mutual respect and trust between clients and myself.

Over time I have built good relationships with local specialists, qualified electricians and plumbing contractors, which enables me to offer a total service.

These great relationships are not limited just to other specialists. We believe customer satisfaction is our highest marker of success and we work hard to ensure all of our Clients are happy. This is why we make sure we answer calls and emails in a timely manner and make sure our Clients understand all their options. We do not believe in railroading our Clients with jargon and we certainly do not believe in cutting corners. We speak plainly and make sure our estimates are as accurate as possible so that you do not get any nasty surprises! We think this is why so many of our Clients are repeat customer ,or people that have come to us through recommendations from family and friends.

Our Ethos

Through Cove Construction, we are able to offer you a truly personal and professional Design, Build and Joinery service. We’re always excited by our bespoke designs and helping our Clients find new and innovative solutions for their homes.

From conception through to completion, we offer a fusion of contemporary and traditional style, with the aim of creating a building, or item of joinery, that is imaginative and functional, built to a known and stated cost which will be an asset to the locality for both now and the future.
