Premier Construction is a family business with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the construction industry of over 45 years.  Started by my father and myself 20 years ago we have kept the company small, resisting the temptation to expand in order to deliver an excellent service to our customers, giving them the full benefits of a company who cares.

Whether you decide to employ our services on a supply and labour basis, or take advantage of our labour only services where we pass on material savings to our customers, you will find our commitment in achieving your goals impressive.

Ian Blatherwick (Proprietor)

I followed in my father’s footsteps into the building trade from leaving school.  I studied at Basford Hall College and gained the City and Guilds Certificate in Carpentry and Joinery.  I spent several years learning the practical skills of my chosen trade with a Mr R Ogder who was, and still is, an outstanding tradesman – ‘one of the old school’.  I then worked for my father honing my joinery skills and seizing the opportunity to learn the peripheral aspects of the building industry, forming Premier Construction soon after.  I take pride in my work both on the tools and managing each project to a successful finish.  I enjoy liaising with the customer on ideas and changes such as room sizes, door positions, aesthetics, storage space etc, afterthoughts that sometimes come to mind as the project progresses and I am always a phone call away should you need any advice or reassurance.

Terry Blatherwick (Bricklayer / Consultant)

I came into the building trade as an indentured apprentice serving 5 years apprenticeship and achieving a full Technological City and Guilds Certificate in Brickwork and during my apprenticeship I won an award as one of a hundred best apprentices in the Country.

I pride myself on achieving a high standard of brickwork and giving the customer value for money which is a skill and a rarity and where, in my opinion, standards have fallen.  Working for people that appreciate this quality and giving value for money is what Premier Construction aims for.

The Team

We have a small team of employees who I am very proud of; they are respectful and polite whilst hardworking.  They realise the importance of cleanliness and go about their work with as little inconvenience to the customer as possible.  We employ sub-contractors such as plasterers, electricians and plumbers who have worked for Premier Construction and our customers for a number of years and are people that we know will work to the standards we set.
