Who We Are

We’ve been at the heart of the construction industry in Sussex since 1949.

We formed Tasker Catchpole through a merger in 2013. Our turnover has expanded rapidly, and now exceeds £15 million a year. We work with clients in both the public and private sectors, on a huge range of commercial, residential, new-build, conversion and refurbishment projects across Sussex and surrounding counties. Our track record includes numerous local authority works covering schools, hospitals and police stations, as well as mixed-use developments, Listed Building renovations and commercial refurbishments. We also have significant expertise in renewable technologies and sustainable materials, including green roofs, rainwater harvesting and PV systems.

Our main business is large-scale commercial and residential construction valued at £1 million plus. We also undertake projects valued at up to £500K through our dedicated Special Works Division, making our full range of expertise accessible to public-sector clients and private individuals.

We’re happy to let our work speak for us

While our core business is projects valued at £1 million plus, we undertake all kinds of commercial, public sector and private-client works across the South East. Our portfolio of recent successes will give you an idea of our wide-ranging capabilities.
