KING Construction Services is the sister company to TSI pro, a family run and long established Mechanical and Electrical company working all over Cornwall on everything from a bespoke 3 milllion house to a site of over 100 houses. To set up KING Construction Services was a natural step, being in the building trade for the last 20 years myself and staff have a wealth of knowledge across the board and work with some very talented individuals. We wanted to bring the whole project under one roof and deliver excellence and peace of mind for our clients.
Building your vision. Creating reality
The first idea to set up KING Construction was when we decided to build our own offices on some land we own as a cost saving exercise. I was sat in my office on the morning that the timber frame arrived and had a phone call to say that the timber frame erectors were off sick as the foreman had pulled a muscle in his back.It was 7:30 in the morning, i had 8 weeks to move out of our offices, a lorry load of wood turning up and no one to get the project started. I handed my workload to my right hand man Steve Hallam who is our contracts manager and headed home to do it myself. Eight weeks later, (and with a week to spare) we were moving in. I had a pulled on all my resources, colleagues and friends, basically anyone i had worked with and knew were good was involved.
Whilst this was going on, in the background I had been working with planning consultants and architects to try obtain planning permission to build two new detached houses on land previously rejected. Working alongside key professional that i trusted and after a lot of work i managed to secure planning to build the two new houses. from here we looked at every avenue to build the two houses and it soon became clear to me that the only way i would be happy would be to build them myself so i set up KING Construction Services. Although the company is within it’s infancy it has already been approached by developers and we are currently tendering 9 apartments in Truro. Working alongside it’s well established sister company and surrounded by time served trusted staff i can see the future looks great.
