Quality, Health, Safety & Environment



Our 140 year reputation for delivering sound craftsmanship was established by our founder William Birch (1844-13) who was first and foremost a bricklayer who was proud of his craft; throughout our history we have continued to demonstrate this passion, enthusiasm and attention to detail which has been the foundation of the business success. This coupled with the investment we have made in recruiting and training highly skilled individuals has sustained the business to its present day success and provides our customers with the reassurance that we will deliver a high quality service.
