Carl Heslop  Managing Director, Obedair Construction


Our teams education portfolio is extensive from minor works to large scale contracts spanning the whole of the South West over the last 20 years. We are very experienced at working within live school environments and fully understand the needs of this sector at all levels of primary, secondary and university type projects.


Our defence experience extends to work completed at nearly every facility in the South West. We have worked at the Royal Citadel, Stonehouse Barracks, CTCRM Lympstone, RNAS Culdrose, RAF St Mawgan, Devonport Dockyard, RMB Chivenor, HMS Raleigh, Ernesettle and Oakhampton Camp.


Some of our most rewarding work have been completed in this Sector dating back to 1999 when Carl Heslop was heavily involved in the restoration of the Royal William Yard in Plymouth. Since then he has overseen schemes with various heritage clients such as the National Trust and English Heritage.


Schemes delivered by the team include office refurbishments for bespoke clients to larger commercial projects and new builds to provide business expansion or alteration. Obedair has extensive experience in this sector and truly understand that commercial clients have a business to run and require each project to be delivered on time and snag free which we have extensive experience in achieving. The team have also carried out many schemes for national landlords looking to refurbish properties in between lease periods for market.


We have been fortunate over the years to work at many Industrial companies to deliver small and large scale works in and around a Iive environment ensuring that manufacture and business is as usual. Clients the team have worked for include Ratio plastics, JDS Uniphase, Carlsberg and Riverford Foods.


This sector is one that our team have worked within for many years. Carl Heslop has overseen many schemes within Derriford Hospital including the refurbishment of the Shipley Ward, the remodelling of the X ray department and managed the complete refurbishment of the Glenbourne unit which he personally handed over snag free.

Bespoke Property Enhancement

Our project experience enables us to provide a very professional bespoke property offering to deliver the requirements of anyone looking to increase the value or expand their home through alteration or extension. We have experience of delivering projects throughout Devon & Cornwall with a project management approach which delivers on time.


Obedair has experience in delivering alterations and building works for fitout contracts for a number of local and national landlords which include clients such as Sainsburys and H&M. We are able to price both the pre and post shop fitout works and complete the whole package should this be required.

Our Recent Experience

Here’s just a few examples of our capabilities.

Our Process

From Pushing the button to hand over and aftercare, you can be sure Obedair is there for you.

Initial Enquiry

Whether its a pack of Architects drawings or a phone call, make contact and we can discuss your requirements in more detail. Although we have experience in major projects, big isn’t always beautiful and we love to hear from anyone who requires a project no matter what the size completed to a high standard and we can meet to fully understand your requirements and develop the best solution.

Develop Solution

Once we have the clear brief in our heads we will get the team together and utilise all of our knowledge and support network to put together our most competitive bid. This is where any idea is discussed and we start to get really excited about your project and how we can deliver this providing added value and with as little disruption to our clients as possible. This is the most important stage as it sets the foundation with the whole team buying into your vision and planning for successful delivery.

Manage Project

Upon receipt of an order we would then put all of our planning and ideas into action and manage your project as promised. Our key focuses are to ensure we deliver a high level of Health & Safety, Quality with zero snags and also that the project is managed so that you are able to receive it delivered as soon as possible. We provide full time supervision and ensure that your project is managed correctly in a very professional manner and we do what we said we would.

Handover & Aftercare

Throughout the project we will engage with you extensively which is the bit we really enjoy, sharing your vision and seeing it coming to life. We still get a massive amount of satisfaction seeing each client happy at completion and we will make handover as stress free as possible. Also after completion we are on hand to answer any queries you may have to ensure our service extends beyond project completion.
