Nevrus

Origins

The business was established in 2001 with the aim of being most successful construction company in Wales. The founders recognised a niche in the market and their first contract was to build a residential development in the heart of Cardiff Bay. Arriving on site on a wet Monday morning with only a handful of staff, albeit highly experienced, the firm was faced with a major project to deliver. With the experience of the staff, the ability of the management and pure team work, the company carried on with the project and soon turned it around, proving a professional and innovative approach that has catapulted the company to achieve the incredible growth and success it has experienced in just four years.

Success Factor

The aim is to be distinctive, which means being different from their competitors and in key respects, better than their competitors if the company is to become and remain the contractor of choice. The senior management believe that they have to give clients reasons for choosing the company in the first place, and reasons for coming back to them time after time. It is not enough to say that they will deliver on time, to budget and at the right level of quality. These goals are important, but every contractor in the industry aspires to them. To be truly distinctive, the company has set out four key areas that the business works to continually improve, namely people, process, communications and technology

The Future

The company has a forward order book of some £40m and employs over 70 staff from its offices in Exeter and Cardiff.
