OUR BRIEF HISTORY – HOW DID WE COME TO BE?

Founded by Bernard Davis in 1985 under the name BJ Davis, we started life as a commercial decorating company. Over the next two decades bringing us to 2012, we adapted our direction to focus on maintenance and small building works up to £15,000. Over time, we rapidly grew ever more confident and began moving into the Education sector in 2015, taking on project values between £50,000 - £100,000 with turnover reaching £2million.

In 2015, Bernard’s son (Our Managing Director) Tom purchased the company from his parents, followed by a rebrand only a year later. Thus bringing us to our current figures for projects completed since rebranding. Moving forward over the next couple of years, 2017 was a monumental year for the development of Davis. We relocated to a new (our current) office and our business model evolved, as we took on projects ranging from £1m to £5million with an annual turnover of £9million. 2017 also brought an array of awards for Davis, with Tom winning the IOD East of England Director of The Year (Family Business) and the company itself winning Company of the year in the Essex Business Excellence Awards.

Our turnover continued to rise to £12.5million in 2018, and in 2019 we forecast £15million. Working throughout London and across the South East, our commitment to innovative solutions and efficient project delivery has seen us grow an impressive portfolio of clients across a diverse range of industries, and having entered into 2020, we have approached the year with success on the horizon having secured contracts totalling just over £13 million in the past 6 months.

We take on 2020 full steam ahead into our already ongoing £7.7 million Residential project Acorn House and here’s to upcoming contracts that further ascend us on our upwards journey.
