project portfolio


Resourced to manage projects up to £8m, we undertake projects across diverse sectors, possessing a strong track record in education, social housing and community schemes. More recently we have enjoyed particular success in the construction of high-specification one-off private residences, together with several major schemes for the Ministry of Defence. We are able to accommodate various 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.


Budget and zero defects are often high priorities for Clients in the affordable housing sector. We work hard to provide an end product that is delivered within budget and velue-engineered where appropriate. We also understand that the project must be of high quality and completed on time. Management experience acquired via our Development Company, together with our work on Design and Build projects, means we have long-established working relationships with a range of Design Teams, and are well used to managing the design process, value engineering and using modern methods of construction. Our Clients in this sector include:

Aster Homes | Bournemouth Churches Housing Association | Borough of Bournemouth | The Hyde Group | Hanover Housing | Knightstone Housing | New Forest District Council | Borough of Poole | Raglan Housing | Shaftesbury Housing Group | Signpost Homes | Swaythling Housing | W H Saunders Charity | City of Southampton | Western Challenge Housing | Winchester & District Housing

Health and safety is of the utmost priority on all our projects. We are responsive to the special challenges of environments where we may be working in close proximity to sick or vulnerable people. Our General Works Department has been enjoying particular success in recent years in fast-paced ward refurbishment works.

We have been working for many years within NHS hospitals, Special Needs and Dementia Care environments, where we take a sensitive approach to minimisation of disruption, particularly in relation to noise, dust, accessibility, and environmental affect. A number of our successful care home projects have been completed whilst in occupation. Our Clients in this sector include:

We have developed a strong presence in this sector in recent years, significantly in the complete refurbishment and remodelling of facilities to upgrade or change of use. This can be demonstrated by our work within the Grade II listed Bournemouth Pavilion, converting lower floors to state-of-the art centres for Dance and Drama, and the completion by our General Works Department of a rolling programme of refurbishment works to New Forest District Council Leisure Centres. Most of our Leisure projects have been in environments where it has been essential to remain open to the public and operational throughout the works, requiring careful project planning to allow on-going use of the facilities. Our Clients in this sector include:

Bournemouth Borough Council | Bude & Stratton Town Council | East Dorset District Council | New Forest District Council | New Milton Town Council.

DREW has built an enviable reputation for the construction of one-off private residences since formation in 1908 by our founder, Herbert H Drew, who began development work in the New Milton and surrounding areas. Our experience and expertise in this sector coupled with a full understanding of our Clients' requirements, has meant we have been able to successfully deliver a number of 'showcase' projects on a Main Contracting basis. This has more recently included a number of projects of multiple housing and apartment blocks for private sale or rent.
