Founded in 1908 to build homes in the New Forest area, DREW has grown extensively to become prominent throughout most of central southern and south-west England. Main contracting provides the core of our construction activity, with our project experience covering widely diverse sectors. We have built an extensive portfolio of valued Clients from both public and private sectors, many returning with repeat business following previous successful projects. We retain an outstanding reputation synonymous with quality and customer care. Our website showcases our project diversity, and our expertise and flexibility in meeting the needs of our Clients.

Resourced to manage contracts up to £8m, as Building Contractors we undertake projects across diverse sectors. We are able to accommodate all procurement routes, including Design and Build, negotiated, two-stage tender, and traditional competitive tendering. We have an unrivalled reputation for exceptionally high-quality, well managed projects. Contact us now to discuss your project with a member of our experienced Team. It's easy to get in touch by phone, email, social media, or using our enquiry form.
Our General Works Division is an integral part of our operations, covering a similar range of project types on a smaller scale to our Main Contracts Division, generally up to £1.5m in value. This ensures we can provide an holistic service to our increasing Client base. Led by its Commercial Manager, General Works employs a Team of Surveyors, Site Managers and tradesmen to ensure quality and reliability. General Works' operational area covers southern Hampshire and south-east Dorset.
Development projects continue to play a significant part in our construction activity, with much of our development work now centred in the Devon and north Cornwall region, where we have established a reputation for outstanding build quality, and are now at the forefront of utilising innovative design solutions to provide sustainable contemporary homes. Construction of 58 dwellings for the over 55's at Rydon Village, Holsworthy, is well under way.
The Company achieved a high standard of construction and finish in our project to extend the hospital. All staff, including Directors, Site Managers and Surveyors were easy to deal with, extremely professional and responsive. We would definitely use them again for any construction project in the future.
