Banyard Construction

A traditional building firm that you can trust.

Banyard Construction Ltd is ultimately the local building contractor with local values and a hands-on philosophy. A family run business which started in the late ‘50’s by Keith Banyard providing construction services in the local area.

Operating from our head office near Poole and now with projects across Dorset and Hampshire, we pride ourselves on providing a quality product at the highest of standards, safely, to a budget and to a programme, across all sectors of the industry.

Our ethos for working closely with our Clients and not just for them, has set us apart from the competition and our reputation with local Architects, Engineers, Subcontractors and Suppliers only bolsters our position in the industry. This approach has also seen us secure Clients as far as the Capital through recommendation.

Banyard Construction is renowned for its extensive portfolio of high quality projects ranging from refurbishments, extensions, loft conversations through to new build individual houses for private clients and developers both on a build only and design and build basis.

We are able to operate effectively within a two hour radius of Poole on projects up to £5 million.

Thank-you for visiting our website and we trust that your viewing experience here gives you the confidence to decide that we are the Contractor with whom you wish to discuss your latest project.

It may be your first dip into the property market, an extension to your existing property, your modern new-build house, construction of additional space or alterations to your school buildings, a new church hall or provision of commercial property. Whatever your requirements, we believe that Banyard Construction Ltd can fulfil your requirements and expectations.


The company was started by Keith Banyard back in 1959 and in the early days works were undertaken not just by Keith, but also involved his two sons Martyn and Nick and long standing family friend Rex Brown.

This has developed as the business has grown and now Nick is at the helm with Rex and 2 further directors Simon Banks and Antony Legg.

Simon joined the business in 1999 bringing with him his experience of working for a national contractor as well as local businesses, to broaden the potential operation of Banyard Construction Ltd.

Antony Legg joined the business in 2013. Antony has 20 years’ experience in the industry during which time he obtained Chartered status through the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. He brought his extensive knowledge of working on larger projects which he gained working for a regional housing developer. Antony was appointed as a Director of Banyard Construction in March 2018.

The office is strengthened by Kevin Green, a Quantity Surveyor, with vast commercial and contracting experience and Steve Atkins our Materials Buyer, again with a thorough knowledge of the industry.

The Family theme still continues with Nick’s son Justin and Rex’s son Luke both being involved as part of the carpentry team and following in their Dad's footsteps.

Our commitment to the business and to those in the Team has been rewarded through the loyalty afforded to it with some of the members having undertaken their apprenticeships here and continuing their employment some 20 years on.

We trust that our approach to our business will encourage you to join our long list of Clients and those who have a long standing relationship with Banyard Construction Ltd.
