Established in 1868 by Thomas Henry Kingerlee, our great history has continued through five generations. This history isn’t just about continuing our proud name, it is about passing on those years of knowledge, experience and reputation as we continue to grow in every sense. To maintain a solid and dependable reputation through two World Wars and all the technological advances since, requires strong values, a solid core and an unshakeable belief in how we do things. That core is demonstrated in the fact that our founder’s great, great-grandson, David Kingerlee, our Chairman, is integral to the running of our business today with over 120 staff, and an annual revenue of circa £50m.
An ongoing vision
Our vision is to build on our heritage of providing high quality and sustainable construction projects for our customers and the society we live in. Our business is shaped by reliable people with integrity who share a strong work ethic, a passion for excellence and our family values.
The pride in our own heritage runs deep, as does our understanding that our people are the beating heart of what we build and how we build. Our behavioural safety approach ‘Home Safe - putting family first’ is our highest priority as we continue to maintain the family culture built up over five generations and encourage a positive working environment for everyone on our projects, where innovation, teamwork and ideas can thrive.
