We possess well-honed organisation skills, developed over years of running building projects and managing people. This is a vital aspect of our business, as when it comes to building, the devil is in the detail. 

The Bluerose Building Company was founded by Steve Orton and Ivan Bates. We both come from a military background and have applied the ethos of integrity as a central tenet of our business. Our aim is to run a construction company that differs from the rest and serves our customers first. We strive to ensure that we complete your building project to the highest of standards, within budget, and on time. 

Steve is a builder of some 27 years, having worked on a vast portfolio of domestic building projects, up to and including new build houses. Steve has a keen eye for detail and makes sure all building work meet his own impeccable standards.

Ivan is a Cambridge University graduate who, following his time in the military, became a Gas Safe engineer, plumber, and electrician. So between the two founders, Bluerose has all the bases covered.
