WHO WE ARE
Borras Construction are a highly respected main contractor, leading the way in design, construction and maintenance of the built environment. We’re committed to delivering works efficiently, whilst understanding the vision of our clients and partners.
Since our Chairman, Rae Borras, founded the company in 1980, Borras Construction has emerged as a leading contractor, providing tailored solutions across a diverse range of sectors, for both public and private clients. We deliver refurbishment, new build, project management and design and build solutions across sectors including commercial projects, high quality residential, education, heritage, health, community and leisure. Our diverse portfolio includes many Grade II listed buildings, high profile and bespoke projects.
Today, our clients benefit from over three decades of experience operating across Hertfordshire, London and the South East. We remain a privately owned company – one dedicated to delivering projects on time and to budget in a transparent, considerate and collaborative manner. It’s what makes us stand out from our competitors. It also enables us to expand and prosper through bringing lasting benefits to our clients and the communities in which we work.
At Borras we offer an extensive range of services delivered through four specialist divisions:
With typical contract values from £1m to £10m, our General Contracts division deliver the largest projects in the Borras portfolio. We apply our experience in an enthusiastic and responsible way across a number of sectors for both public and private clients.
Whatever the job, whether it’s a standalone project or scheme from a long-standing framework alliance, we use our ingenuity to avoid potential issues and provide cost-effective solutions at every stage of construction.
Housing construction, planned maintenance and improvements have always been a fundamental part of our business. Whether delivering kitchen upgrades to hundreds of occupied premises, constructing new build residential properties or carrying out external improvements, our experience means we know how to deliver housing schemes in an effective, informative and seamless way.
- Considerate construction management when working within occupied premises
- Dedicated Customer Care team for each project
- Trained Resident Liaison Officers (RLOs) ensure residents are informed and satisfied at every stage of the project
This highly professional division of Borras carries out smaller, specialist, often fast track projects across all of our market sectors, with values typically ranging from £100k to £2m.
- Personable, open communication throughout each project
- Single point of contact enables close working relationships
- Client focused response to procurement and delivery
Specially formed and geared for the unique challenges of projects across the capital. Our London division handles contracts with typical values of up to £10m.
With many busy routes and highly populated communities, our projects in London require extensive planning and research to achieve delivery and completion. We work with local communities, often adapting our workflow with commitments to ensure that any disruption to local business is kept to a minimum. We’ve completed many high profile projects in London, including commercial works, residential, heritage, education, leisure and community. Our London portfolio is continuously growing, with new and repeat business for both public and private sector clients.
I’ve been particularly impressed with Glenn who’s performance as Site Manager has been outstanding. There have been many problems along the way and Glenn has always come up with practical, cost effective solutions. It’s been quite a challenge working in an occupied space but Glenn has overcome this difficulty by forming good working relationships with the staff and accommodating their needs with ease.
