About us

Eamon and Liam Hetherington co-founded GPD in 2000, continuing a family tradition of established builders since the 1930s. Over the years we have grown the company and built up a reputation for carrying out our work to the highest standard of finish.

 

We are experienced in the field of new builds and are proud of our reputation in this area.  We at GPD know that whatever building or renovation project you have in mind, be it large or small, it is important to you. We take time to listen carefully to what you want. We also take on the responsibility of fulfilling your wishes and giving you all the advice, guidance, and support that you may need.

 

In an age when the world seems increasingly run by automatic call centers and faceless organisations, we pride ourselves on giving a personal service.  When you deal with us, you deal with real people who care.

 

Our values include: Health, Safety and Wellbeing, Listening, Innovation, Continual Improvement and Sustainability

 

Our approach is collaborative, informing, engaging, honest, fair, responsive, creative and community-led.

 

Our key drivers are repeat business, personal well-being and quality of life.
