Company History & Merger

R Bell Construction

From 1977, R Bell Construction established itself as one of Glasgow’s top building companies, renowned for their professional, high-quality approach to every job. Although they specialise in house extensions, roofing and general joinery they are able to offer a complete design and build package.

Being a family-run business has been pivotal in the success of R Bell construction, as founder Richard Bell has been able to pass his vast wealth of experience onto his son. Grant Bell was introduced to the family business at the age of 16 and took over the running of the business in 2015, allowing Richard a well-deserved rest and happy retirement.

 T. Higgins Property Maintenance

Thomas Higgins has been operating within the construction industry for over 30 years. During his apprenticeship, he found plastering to be his passion and within a few years started his own business. In the years that followed, T. Higgins developed into a property maintenance company offering multiple trades under the one company.
