Marnick Builders celebrate 25 years of trading with relaunch

The Falmouth based builders ushered in their 25th year of trading with a full re-brand and new website (www.marnick.co.uk).

Using the website to showcase their work and provide potential clients with more information on the services offered combined well with the opportunity to modernise the face of the business, taking a step away from the traditional approach of other contractors.

The business started in 1991 with small jobs, repairs and maintenance for the general public and local housing departments. Exceptional growth means that the company now has an enviable portfolio which includes work on some of Cornwall’s most well known buildings, such as the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle.

Although Marnick Builders have completed projects in the commercial, heritage, education and leisure industries a majority of their work is in the residential sector. From ultra modern cliff top homes to the renovation of small fisherman’s cottages the team take great care and pride in their work. Their reputation for dedication, quality and professionalism is well deserved.

To this day the values which Marnick Builders started with are very much the focus of the business. Using over 80 years of combined experience the team are able to maintain excellent relationships not only with clients, but also working seamlessly with local and national contractors on projects if required. Clients can also benefit from advice on surveys and planning at any stage to ensure that the final result is not only visually stunning but structurally perfect. Achieving an outstanding finish, within budget and on time has, and always will be the aim.

Keeping their workforce of master craftsmen at the forefront of building technology enables the business to take on challenging projects with remote locations or advanced structural designs. They invest heavily in training for new materials and are always looking at innovative ways of incorporating them into projects, from external wall insulation renders to cantilevered floating decking spaces. With one foot planted firmly in the future the business is also careful to ensure that traditional methods and trades are not forgotten.

A successful apprenticeship scheme means that these trades are passed down to the next generation and continue to be used. Former apprentices have taken roles with increasing responsibility in the business from site managers to operational positions. Currently there are five apprentices across a variety of trades keeping the workforce highly motivated and skilled.

Specialist heritage work is aided by working closely with the in-house joiners shop, Marnick Joinery. A wide variety of bespoke joinery can be catered for and made to the exact requirements, an asset which has helped to create some truly unique features in heritage and modern properties across Cornwall.

Marnick Builders stand by there strapline of “Quality through experience” and offer a personal service, working closely with architects and specialist sub-contractors to meet the needs of the client.
