No matter the scale of the project, however large or small the scope of works, Morris & Blunt Construction Ltd ensures to deliver the best possible service. The range of work we undertake is broad; however, our particular expertise lies in commercial refurbishments and extensions. We also handle new build contracts too. The value of our work varies, from minor projects to multi-million-pound construction contracts.
The sectors of work we undertake are as follows;
With over 30 years’ experience working in local Schools and Academies, both via Local Authorities and direct appointment, we can justifiably claim to be specialists as a main construction contractor. Many of our construction contracts are based on recommendation, leading to repeat works and negotiated projects.
We have worked on new build classrooms, halls and kitchens, playgrounds, toilet refurbishments, roofing and detailed refurbishments of specialist areas such as food technology and science laboratories. We also undertake fire precaution and DDA access requirements works. All our staff fully understand the nature of working within a school environment, all having up-to-date enhanced DBS disclosures.
Local Authority & Community Projects
Local Authority and Community projects are varied in nature and each has its own challenges. From working in public buildings, such as Libraries, Town Halls, Public Theatres and places of worship, to care facilities for the more vulnerable members of our community. Morris & Blunt Ltd appreciate the impact construction work has on local communities and we aim to reduce this, whilst making positive contributions to the communities within Reading and the greater Berkshire area where our work is carried out.
Sports & Leisure
Sports and Leisure facilities each introduce their own particular demands, requiring hard-wearing finishes and high standards of workmanship. Working around busy Sports Centre schedules and educational buildings increases the challenge. Morris & Blunt Ltd is fast gaining a reputation for delivering high quality results whilst causing minimum disruption.
Our residential construction work is extremely broad-based, encompassing large scale Local Authority refurbishments, new build projects, as well as work on highly sensitive developments such as listed buildings and sites within conservation areas.
Our approach is always one of thoroughness and high quality. Increasingly we are embracing new technologies addressing environmental concerns such as heat exchangers, solar panels and environmental rainwater flushing tanks.
Our new-build work has been varied from one-off luxury houses through to listed townhouses. This type of work requiring high-quality finished development is something we find particularly rewarding. Organisation and communication are key – disciplines we implement throughout all our work. We have also undertaken works for private clients with confidentiality agreements in place to protect their privacy.
We also develop our own sites and are always interested in joint ventures. If you have a potential new build plot, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we might be able to work with you.
