The business has been established since 1970. John Feaver and Patricia Feaver have operated the business continually since that time.
The business has undergone many changes over the years adapting and expanding its services to the wants and trends set by our customers.
In the early days, most of our work was domestic repairs and new builds, however, during the 1980's the popularity of conversions began and we quickly established ourselves as a premier company for the conversion of barns and similar buildings. Since those formative years we have gone on to convert many barns and buildings, from individual units through to large barn complexes.
During this time it became apparent that the Westcountry had a large number of cob construction buildings, in order to continue converting these buildings, we trained and specialised in cob repairing and Lime plastering and decoration.
During the 1990's we continued with conversions and new builds, but also became involved with the Local Authorites in the provision of social housing and disability centres. Through this enterprise we were employed to provide extension/alterations to care homes, private residence, schools and residential centres. We continue to provide mobility alterations and wet room services in addition to a host of other disabilty related amendments as required.
Using the experience gained from this work, we became involved in the Local Authority provided initiative Care and Repair. This service was developed to provide essential building work in the homes of the elderly and vulnerable, allowing them to remain in their homes and avoiding the need for permanent placement into care.
In addition we became involved in local schools, providing alterations, and decoration services during school holidays. We also became an emergency contact for any pressing or urgent works that developed within local authority premises including schools.
During the entire time we have always catered for customers domestic needs. We undertake all manner of repairs and maintenance.
In recent years we have seen another change, this being the drive for thermal efficiency and the green movement. We provide full insulation services and can advise on many different aspects of insulation and thermal efficiency. Water savings, solar energy and heat pump technology are a new and growing field in the domestic market, and we are happy to provided these services and offer advice as to what options are available.
The future for John Feaver Building And Contracting is to continue to expand the services we offer, whilst relying on the 41 years of experience gained. As a company we have a broad knowledge of the industry, and are constantly updating and following the upcoming technology and methods. As we move forward, we expect this base to continue to develop, and the range of services we offer to be extended.
