Long Service

Formed in 1896 as a family business and now into our 5th Generation we have grown steadily in both status and reputation over the last 115 years. The name WALKERS has now been linked to many educational and NHS projects with our region

We undertake works in all aspects of construction within the commercial and industrial sectors, including emergency and planned maintenance, refurbishment, alterations and new build up to a value of £2million.

We are members of the Construction Health and Safety Assessment Scheme and understand the importance of health and safety planning within sensitive areas.

With our vast experience of working within Educational and NHS Sectors we recognise the all-round co-ordination and co-operation which is required when construction works take place.


The “hands on” family traditions behind WALKERS success story remain the key force behind the growth of the company adding direction, purpose and pride. We pride ourselves on giving each customer a personalised service and dedicated project manager from concept through to completion and beyond.

Cost effectiveness and customer satisfaction experience teaches us that a well-planned job by experts, working well with the client and to a schedule has the best chance of achieving both objectives.
