We create high quality, luxury properties that last
We are luxury building contractors, renovating and creating new homes and educational facilities. We’re proud of the success we achieve as the construction partner of several dynamic and talented architects.
Galower is Kevin Gale and Mick Power. We started in 1978 since which time we’ve built a strong and stable business. Together with our workforce of 30+ employees - site managers, specialist trades and office support staff - we have a well-deserved reputation for very high quality. That includes workmanship, relationships and project management. We’ve also built up a network of loyal 3rd party specialist contractors.
Our work ranges from new builds to renovations. We harness both modern and traditional working practices in order to build the inspirational visions created by the architect and their clients.
We’re invited to work mainly on projects in London and the south of England. Whatever and wherever the project, our criteria is the same as it’s always been: are we able to do our best work? If the answer’s yes, we want to be on the tender list.
Building alongside the architect
Apart from their workmanship, the other major plus point with Galower is that the client (eg home owner) buys into them. These are often 12-18 month projects so it’s vital the relationship is a good one. It most definitely is with Galower.
Building for the property owner
The architect or designer takes your brief and creates the vision. Next, in
consultation with the structural engineer, we work on practicalities. Then, Galower is in charge of buildability and turning the whole plan into an exciting reality. We manage the project entirely, ensuring its smooth running and delivery of the highest standard of workmanship. This includes clear and consistent communication, and harmonious working relationships throughout, from accommodating third party contractors to drinking tea with the next door neighbour.
Property owners need transparency on a project. Someone to lean on when they’re
worried; someone who’ll chivvy them along to make decisions. We’re calm and take everything in our stride.
An Architect is only as good as the builder who delivers the goods. Galowers are instrumental in delivering the project to the highest standard. We all have really good fun as well.
Galower Build projects: a great
experience from start to finish
Galower has integrity, they deliver on their promises. They have an old fashioned commitment to achieving quality for a client. Not all contractors have that so it colours the kind of work they win. I’m always impressed by their willingness to engage openly with the consultant team and client in a professional way. Always an open line of communication and a ‘can do’ attitude.
