Crafted from the ground up

Doyle & Whitley started out 10 years ago as two skilled builders – an engineer and a carpenter – with a passion for their craft. Today, we are a 30-strong team, with a full time back office staff, specialising in complex new builds and restorations across the South West.

New Builds

We offer a complete works package from the ground up, encompassing all aspects of construction, and all the related trades necessary to get the job done. We’ll run your project from start to finish, checking everything’s completed to spec at all stages. Alongside our full time team, we can act as main contractor, bringing in other specialists from our approved list – people who share our commitment to first-class construction and are consistently reliable and conscientious.

Traditional Restoration

This is where founders Will Doyle and Tom Whitley learnt their trade, reviving the traditional techniques of oak and timber framing. Though we’ve brought this conscientious approach to all types of build, we still regularly oversee teams of traditional tradesmen to restore stonework, roofs and timber in old buildings, including Grade I and II listed. We have some of the best skilled craftsmen in the industry, and know how to get the most from them, co-ordinating everyone so things go smoothly.

What we do
