Building on firm foundations and going
from strength to strength.
More than 30 years ago, proud Yorkshireman David Walker founded Walker Builders, working on smaller building projects across the region. Son Chris joined the company alongside his dad after leaving school, and the hard-working team soon grew the family business into a small, developing company, building quality housing. Accredited by the National House-Building Council (NHBC), their well-built homes and high standards attracted further recognition from an NHBC inspector, resulting in Walker Builders becoming an approved contractor for NHBC remedial works.
With their reputation for top quality work and superb customer care set in stone, customer demand grew. And following the purchase of a new head office and stock yard in 2019, the decision was made to expand the long-established company into Walker Group.
By creating separate exciting divisions, Walker Homes can concentrate on new developments and marketing our quality homes, while Walker Plant researches new technologies and invests in specialist plant and machinery, allowing Walker Estates to focus on estate management.
Our company and clients have benefited from us going from strength to strength. And we continue to build on our reputation of being able to overcome the most difficult of projects. Homing in on the root cause of the issue allows us to find the best way to solve it.
Above all, Walker Group prides itself on its no-nonsense, reliable, and effective warranty repair service, while still meeting the needs of private clients. And being a family-run company, we are committed to investing in our team – sharing our experience and training our workforce so all our clients receive the best possible workmanship.
Having a wide range of skills and services allows us to carry out most tasks in-house but when the expertis of other trades is required, we use only specialist sub-contractors, working under our leadership and channelling all communication through our company.
We are also part of The Considerate Constructors Scheme – a nonprofit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
Our highly respected, friendly, and professional customer care relationship has driven Walker Group to become a nationwide construction contractor. Through recommendations from industry professionals, our client base has expanded to include major housing developers, managing agents and insurance providers.
