LJC Construction


We have recently completed three new builds in the picturesque village of Maidencombe. The ground floor of each of the houses was sympathetically constructed using reclaimed stone from the derelict buildings that previously occupied this site.


Works on Alpine House, Haytor located within the Dartmoor National Park are now nearing completion. This project has taken an empty shell constructed almost 20 years ago to a thermally efficient, state of the art home.


Specialists in all aspects of construction in and around the South Devon area

We are a family run construction firm that have been successfully trading for over twenty years. We became a limited company in 2004.

We have been members of the National House Builders Council since 2006 (NHBC). We became registered with the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) in 2007 and also gained their build assure status the same year. We are also members of the government backed Trustmark association. In 2011 we qualified for Construction Health And Safety (CHAS) and in 2012 gained Safe Contractor status meaning that all our health and safety procedures have been vetted by a third party. This means that we are now able to carry out works for local authorities and companies like Jewson etc.

We understand that having any work carried out on your property can be a stressful time and that you want to be sure of choosing the right contractor.

All of our team pride themselves on carrying out works to a very high standard on time and on budget. We are punctual and always do what we say.

Our company has all the correct insurances to cover public, employee and works liability. We would be delighted to supply references from local architects and private customers upon request.

"In all things, LJC has been open and fair regarding costs, particularly as our lists of adjustments grew. Final invoices reflected original estimates and the costs of all works were at all times totally transparent. We would recommend Richard and his team without hesitation."

"Nothing was too much trouble for LJC Construction in the building of our new house. We have a shared access driveway and they were always able to keep everything tidy and out of the way. We hardly knew they were there. As for the final result – we were amazed at the quality and high level of finish. I would recommend them to anyone."
