Edgeley Construction

About us

With 40 years’ experience in the construction sector, we’re a forward-thinking business that’s continuing to build on a legacy spanning three generations. 

We believe that quality relies on accountability across every aspect of a project, so we employ our own in-house team of skilled and experienced specialists. We work collaboratively with developers to make sure our programmes meet your time-critical deadlines and cost management goals.

Offering design, construction and maintenance services, we understand the need to maximise the yield or returns of every project. We have the skills, management capabilities and market knowledge to achieve that goal without compromising on quality. That’s why developers trust us to realise their vision and help them maximise their return on investment.

From change-of-use projects and sensitive refurbishment of existing buildings, to new build residential and commercial projects, our diverse portfolio articulates the pride we take in everything we do.

The Team

We’re proud of what Edgeley has achieved, and we’re completely committed to building on our reputation with exceptional craftsmanship, quality and customer service. 

Six members of the Brett family that established the company are still involved in running it today, alongside a team of dedicated professionals, hand-picked for their skills, experience and values.

Our dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for every project is embedded in the culture of our team across all disciplines and at all levels.
