At Tasker Catchpole, our core business is large-scale construction, conversion and renovation works, valued from £1 million upwards. Our clients include local authorities, schools and colleges, commercial developers and private individuals.
We have extensive experience in new-build residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. Recent projects include developments of nine and 16 new homes on behalf of private clients, valued at around £1 million and over £2 million respectively. We also built the new Aero Club at the legendary Goodwood Aerodrome (£1.5 million).
Many of our new-build projects incorporate our huge experience in ecological materials and technologies; recent examples include a substantial private residence to Code 5 sustainability standards (£855K).
As a company, we’re committed to sustainability, so we’re always pleased to re-purpose existing structures and give them a new lease of life. Our track record includes converting a former commercial building into 31 flats (£4.4 million) for a private client on the South Coast, and refurbishing eight flats and common areas in a residential home for the elderly run by a local housing association (c. £500K).
A Tasker Catchpole speciality, we’ve completed major construction projects for a large number of schools and colleges, both in the state and independent sectors. These range from extending and refurbishing classrooms, CDT buildings and science labs at Hurstpierpoint College (total £3.1 million) to creating new classrooms at a primary school in Chichester, and new boundary walls at a Brighton junior school (both c. £400K). We’ve also built an entire new Sixth Form Centre, including state-of-the-art classrooms, lecture theatre, library and common room, at a local Sixth Form College, currently ranked among the best in the country. (£3.3 million).
We were contracted to design and build Parq, a major residential development in a former office block overlooking Preston Park, Brighton’s largest public green space.
Hurstpierpoint College is an independent, co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 4–18, set in 140 acres of grounds near the village of Hurstpierpoint in West Sussex.
