History

Swainlands Construction is the umbrella name for our two sister companies Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd and Swainland Builders Ltd, each specialising in different sectors of construction.

For over 40 years Swainland Builders Ltd has specialised in new builds across London and the South East.  The founder, Tom Swainland senior, worked his way up through the construction ranks from a bricklayer in the 1960’s to the MD of the company, running multiple new build projects of housing estates in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Swainland Builders Ltd has constructed estates of over 30 executive houses and apartment blocks with over 40 units. Today Swainland Builders Ltd is still active and regularly purchases and develops sites in London and the Home Counties as well as joint ventures with close allies.  Swainland Builders Ltd established its name as a developer buying prime land and developing at the right time which enabled Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd to establish itself as a contractor simultaneously.

Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd began life as a general building contractor in general residential construction and refurbishment contracting for several decades.  Circa 1990 the company established a name in the insurance reinstatement sector specialising in running major and complex loss insurance reinstatement contracts.  As such Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd is held in very high regard with many loss adjusters, engineers and surveyors in the region.

In the late 1990’s Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd also began working for local authorities and housing associations completing several major and minor projects for the authorities annually, working in schools, children’s centres, medical centres and other public buildings.

In the early 2000’s Tom Swainland & Sons Ltd successfully began tendering for property management companies and their contract administrators, completing cyclical Section 20 works to some of the capitals most prestigious properties in Chelsea and Westminster.

Today everything has been pulled together and is in the hands of Tom Senior’s son, also named Tom!  With one team and one office everyone is working together under the name of Swainlands Construction.  An established commercial client base, regular tender opportunities plus the ongoing in-house speculative new build developments Swainlands Construction is going from strength to strength.
