History

Collard Construction was established in 1994. The MD Keith Hood set up the company having had 25 years previous experience within the insurance and minor works sector. Refurbishment projects were taken on which balanced well with the repairs and maintenance. Subsidence works were also carried out using traditional underpinning methods, prior to the more common piled solutions now used.

From the initial 5 employees the company developed and in 1997 Alan Ryeland, Keiths son-in-law joined the workforce eventually becoming a Director in 1999.

Further contacts were made within the insurance sector leading to inclusion onto the list of 2 contractor networks. We have long established contacts for commercial contracts again on the maintenance and repair side.
From November 2010 we added the capability to carry out structural drying following floods , burst pipes and escape of water. We carry our own equipment and are qualified to monitor and certify dryness. The accreditation carried is through the IICRC(Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification). We intend to develop this side of the business further as we believe we can make a difference to claim turnaround times.

We have a very low turnover of staff. They are committed and fully versed in ensuring that your home or business can run as fully as possible during our works.

We are committed to training them where required and for them to come to us for further development. 7 years ago we took on our first apprentice and wish to continue this theme. We currently have 2 apprentices within our ranks and are also supporting a further former apprentice through an HNC course to further enhance is knowledge of the industry.
