Willis Construction


Established in 1986, Gareth Williams’ building firm breaks all the rules in 21st century wealth creation It is not young, it doesn’t offer niche services, nor is it high-tech and Gareth didn’t come from a high-flying career in the same industry with a string of contacts to his name.

Success Factor

Gareth Williams prides himself on being a traditional, solid, reliable general building contractor. His clients seem to like the approach too and customers are primarily local authorities, housing associations and private clients with a mix of new build and refurbishment in the portfolio. He does some commercial work too but most of the work is repeat business. Gareth, and his partner since 1998, Richard Jeremy ACIOB, pride themselves on their customer relationship and have built up a good rapport with clients which has led to repeat business and negotiated contracts.

The Future

Willis Construction Limited has continued to grow during the period 1999 to 2001, predominately due to a strong client base and an increase in partnering arrangements. This sector has been particularly pleasing, states Gareth Williams, because of Willis’s excellent reputation for good workmanship and organization has been rewarded accordingly. A vital new member of the team is Bob Humphries ( Senior Contracts Manager) who has been in the industry for 27 years. Bob heads up the Planned Maintenance Division and brings exceptional experience and expertise to the company. Enquiries for present and future remain strong and the firm looks forward to this year in the Fast Growth network to cement its position in the industry.
