Pride in the quality of our work underpins everything that we do

Nita Owers - Sylvania

“Our Architects (Kast),and ourselves contracted Davey’s through a very competitive tendering process. We were adamant that we had to get the right builders, as we had; a tricky site, a tree protection order and concerned neighbours.

We were taken by their measured, quiet confidence and their passion for high quality craftsmanship.

Our site manager, Graham, was incredibly considerate towards our neighbours, as well as being a perfectionist. All of his craftsmen demonstrated skill, and with reference to the stone work, even artistry. Every nail, join and stone is immaculately placed and I pinch myself every time I walk over our beautifully crafted bridge.

The build was complex and demanding, but at no stage did we experience any doubt that we had made the wrong decision. The whole team were kind, professional and extremely friendly towards my family. They helped me readjust to life in Cornwall from London and I was so fond of them all, that I even baked and bought them cakes.

Sylvania is our lifelong dream and Andy and his team helped make it a reality. I would never recommend anyone other than Davey’s in Cornwall.”

"Thank you for an excellent job – right from the start of the process it was clear that both you and your team are highly professional and efficient. I was particularly impressed by how the inevitable problems were resolved by regular contact and communications throughout.

This ensured that the job was completed to plan, to budget, on time and to a very high standard. The quality of your team meant that the restoration of a traditional Cornish farmhouse was carried out sympathetically with attention to detail and with numerous individual touches and finishes; we are delighted with the end result. Your team have an excellent customer focused attitude and a pleasure to have on site.

I would happily recommend Davey Construction to friends as a highly professional, trustworthy and competitively priced team. Please pass on our thanks to everyone concerned."

Jayne & Malcom McKendrick - The Avenue, Truro

"We recently contracted Davey Construction to build our family room extension to our house in Truro. From the first meeting to the final detailed review of the project, Davey construction in the guise of Andy Davey and his team, have shown nothing but capable professionalism in every aspect of their work.

Throughout the project, they have worked in an organized, tidy and methodical way with a minimum of disruption and mess. They have been thoroughly reliable in timekeeping, work practices and quietly determined to execute every last detail of the design.

All staff are unfailingly courteous, polite and were particularly patient in dealing with any concerns or queries we had. Communication throughout has been a breeze with regular meetings, plans and timetables recorded through email and phone contact.

Andy and his team have ultimately ensured our project has been as painless as possible. All involved have shown consistently high levels of skill, ingenuity and methodical working. Their planning, foresight, attention to detail and obvious pride in their work is reflected in the fantastic addition we now have to our home."

Francis & Kate Herrtage - Victoria Point, Malpus

"We engaged Andy Davey and his team to carry out the renovation of a grade 2 cottage in Malpus.

The project was scheduled to take five months and finished on time despite the inevitable unforeseen discoveries along the way.

Renovating old buildings is always challenging and can certainly be stressful and it is vital that the building team have a positive attitude to the problem-solving in order to cope with the unexpected.

Andy and his team were a delight to work with throughout the project, being solution orientated whilst delivering the highest levels of craftsmanship all in a friendly professional manner.

They are a small team and the fact that Andy has worked with and grown up with so many of them makes for a particular bond, which stands them apart from the large anonymous building firms.

Whenever we needed to discuss something either Andy or his excellent foreman Simon were always happy to take the time to do so.

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Andy and his team and Davey construction, they are a great group of people to work with."

Mr Stephens - West Penwith

"I have been impressed both by the attention to detail and the continuing good humour of their team who clearly enjoy what they do despite many of them having to travel quite a distance to get to the site each day. I have found them to be very professional.

Probably the acid test is if I had to make the decision again would I choose the same contractor? And the answer would be Yes."
