About Us

A Tradition Of Excellence

RHR Construction is a well established, family owned business. It was founded in 1970 by Robert Richards and was originally known as R H Richards and Sons.

In the beginning, we specialised in groundworks and tarmac but we have grown and diversified over the years into other areas of the construction industry, including the building of new homes, extensions and conversions.

We take great pride in providing high quality work for our clients and from the very start, our customer’s satisfaction has been paramount.

Our client base is broad and includes many local and national companies such as McDonalds, St Austell Brewery, The Rowe Group, St Piran Homes, SCB Construction and Kinglsey Developments among many others. We also work with many individual clients on smaller developments and builds here in Cornwall.

Recently we have been working on our own developments. From the award-winning sites of Boscoppa Close and Trenessa Gardens in Redruth to Lamanva Close which features eleven high quality new homes.

RHR Construction have also completed many individual new builds and conversions in and around Redruth, Camborne, St Agnes, Illogan, Penzance and Truro areas. Our most recent development is of two open plan, reverse level detached properties in Illogan. Built to the highest standards, these new properties are due for completion in 2018.

For two years running in 2007 and 2008 RHR Construction won the NHBC Pride in the Job award for site managers who achieve the highest standards in house-building.
