About Cornerstone Construction

Scroll to next section

Cornerstone Construction Ltd is a modern, forward thinking business.   We have well trained and dedicated staff capable of planning, managing, and executing a wide range of domestic and commercial building projects.   We understand the complexities of a construction project and have the tools to deliver for our clients.

The Cornerstone team are a varied group, coming from different backgrounds and all with our own interests and specialities.   We all however, have one thing in common; Commitment.  Commitment to the success of the project, commitment to our company, and commitment to each other.  

This attitude within the company encourages a really positive working environment, which in turn leads to a positive experience for the most important (if temporary) member of our team, the Client.

Here’s a bit of background on some of us:

Nick Stone – Company Owner/Director

Nick has been building all of his working life, gaining a huge amount of experience ‘on the tools’ for various construction companies, on projects large and small.  He began Cornerstone Construction in 2010 and has grown the company year on year.  Despite being chained to the desk a lot of the time, Nick still enjoys time on site, and is very client focussed.

Neil Williamson – Construction Manager

With Cornerstone from the start, Neil is now in charge of the day to day activities on our construction sites.  His responsibilities include ensuring that the details are correct, and solving any technical problems – often before they arise!

Neil is also tasked with ensuring that our work is carried out in line with the company health and safety policy and all of our site rules.

Matt Derrick – Operations Manager

Another member of the original team, Matt has worked his way into a very important role within the company.  He is responsible for the workforce and subcontractors, as well as the flow of all materials and plant to and from our construction sites.  He also manages our commercial maintenance and minor projects.

Isabel Hooker – Office manager

A qualified bookkeeper and very experienced organiser of things!  Izzy carries out all the background office work to ensure the bills get paid and the ‘Cornerstone machine’ runs smoothly.

All of our staff and subcontractors are very well trained to carry out their particular roles within the business.  We firmly believe that training our staff and developing our skills is one of the most rewarding and worthwhile investments a business can make. 

Here are some of the training certificates that some, or all of our staff hold;

CSCS – The benchmark certificate for ensuring people have some basic safety training for working in construction.

PTS – To enable working on the rail network.

SMSTS/SSSTS – The well respected Site Management Safety Training Scheme.

PASMA – for the proper use of temporary scaffolding.

IPAF – For safely using cherry pickers and boom lifts.

Asbestos Awareness – Very important for any demolition works.

First Aid – 4 members of our team have the first aid at work certificate.

Excavator and Dumper – CPCS and NPORS registered card holders.

CAT Scanner – for detecting underground services prior to making excavations.

All electrical and gas works are carried out by suitably registered engineers, holding the GasSafe and NICEIC certificates.
