We were founded in 1874 by James and Thomas Yearsley, who were stonemasons from St Helens. By 1931 the company was incorporated as a limited company. Establishing a reputation for quality, successive generations owned and managed the company. The current Directors are now the fifth generation of family members working for the company.
The company’s vision is to help create a better world that we all enjoy living in, by working together to build quality buildings. We work efficiently and co-operatively to meet this aim, delivering successful outcomes for our clients. We are committed to our projects, to the people that we work with and to our communities.
A different approach to construction
We are extremely proactive and highly flexible in the way we work with all members of the project design and engineering team, offering advice at all stages of the build process to help ensure that buildability, value, timescales and material specification are all optimised. Our team is trained to the highest standards and we are committed to constant personal development.
We depend on a closely integrated supply chain for additional advice and potential value engineering solutions on projects. The strength of these supply chain relationships helps us deliver better project outcomes, improve delivery timescales and reduce waste thereby enhancing client satisfaction.
We place great importance on our health and safety and environmental commitments. As well as CHAS accreditation we are a member of the Building Safety Group Ltd and we are proud of our excellent health and safety record. We also strive to create environmentally sound and sustainable buildings through rigorously implemented management systems and a number of key environmental initiatives.
Our reputation is built on quality and this is backed up by a clearly defined Quality Policy and Quality Assurance Process. As a Chartered Building Company operating under the CIOB’s code of conduct, we are committed to endorsing the principles and values of best practice, ethical standards and professionalism at all times.
