Compamy History

Managing Director Kevin Underwood is a time served bricklayer and stonemason with more than 20 years’ experience in the building trade, he worked closely with his Father Peter Underwood Senior before starting his apprenticeship with Melhuish & Saunders; after completing this he continued to work as a self-employed bricklayer where he went on to complete numerous commercial and domestic projects. In recent years he has concentrated on working in restoration projects alongside his commercial and domestic work.

We serve the entire South West area including Bath, Bristol, Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street, Taunton, Cheddar, Axbridge, Wedmore, Burnham on Sea and Bridgwater. We have also completed projects throughout Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds.


Community Involvement

As a company we participate in local community events where local businesses come together to make a project work. We feel this is our time to give something back and is important to help with work that benefits and impacts our local community. Below you can see some pictures of the Diamond Jubilee bench for the rotary club that some of our apprentices helped make to happen. We also sponsor our local rugby club, Wells RFC and attend numerous sponsorship events.
