Understanding your needs

As a family business, we understand that not only are we building your home as you want it, but having work done to your home is an investment of your time, money and emotion. Most people don’t frequently have building work done to their home so it can be confusing and unsettling – that’s where we come in. We guide you through the process and explain every step so you’ll know what is happening. We will answer all your queries and want you to be confident in us and what we are doing.

Services we provide

Not just a normal builder, Davie Construction Limited offers a Design and Build Service to homeowners and small developers alike, so we can help with planning applications right through to handing over the keys to a complete, clean and tidy home.

We use selected professional and qualified tradesmen and contractors, and all services trades are Gas Safe and NICEIC registered.


We were very happy with your service and enjoyed working with you. Your team was easy to work with, understood our problem and produced a realistic and practical resolution. We are totally satisfied, the fix has worked and you realised our financial constraints and worked within them.
