Company History and Values
Our company continues to work tirelessly to understand the needs of its clients and offer free clear and concise detailed quotations that you will understand and be confident in.
The company was formed as David Pearce Building Contractors in 1983 and run by my father David Pearce after spending over 20 years as a contracts manager for a large local builder. I joined in 1985 and became a partner in 1991, when the company was renamed David Pearce and Son. The company was incorporated in 2004 when the current name was established. My brother Darin, a qualified electrician joined the company in 2008 becoming a director the following year as my father semi-retired, although my father still works as a consultant for us giving us a great source of experience and information.
During the development of the company we have worked on various contracts from the very small up to larger more prestige contracts, including Beechcroft Care Homes, Torbay Council, Mencap, The Post Office and The Idle Rocks Hotel. Covering very different needs from private homes where we work around the needs of the family to maintain a family life to commercial contracts where other needs occur for example, in the case of the care homes we work with staff to keep vulnerable elderly people safe whilst the construction proceeds
We joined the Federation of Master Builders over ten years ago where we became members of the Build Assure warranted builder scheme (Formally Masterbond) As you need to have regular site appraisals, when the standard of your work and the customers satisfaction are monitored in a random way and outside of our control we felt this was the only scheme where our customers can have peace of mind. Because of our membership of the scheme we can offer our client’s an independent warranty on all of our jobs tailored to suit their needs. This warranty is very similar to the NHBC warranty given on a new house but has several layers of cover giving felxibilty to our valued customers. We are also Members of the government run TRUSTMARK SCHEME which was introduced in 2007 to help eradicate the notorious cowboy builders that still blight our industry.
In 2004 we became members of the approved contractors list of the RADON COUNCIL and we have carried out various radon removal schemes around the southwest, during this time we have never failed to bring a house below the government action level. we continue to use this knowledge incorporating many radon removal techniques into all of our extensions even if not required by architects and local authority as during construction these items often cost less than £50 but can save several hundred later
We offer honest advice and a complete range of trades right from the ground works through to decoration and landscaping if required. We also through several local architects offer a design and build option if needed. We also welcome the opportunity to work with clients existing tradespeople (if you have a plumber you trust we would willingly liaise with them to ensure a smooth running of the contract)
We pride ourselves in an outstanding workforce all fully trained in their fields to give you a job all of us can be proud of as well as making the process as stress free as possible
We will make your house into a home
