We’re Kevin Gale and Mick Power and we created the company in 1978, using our surnames to come up with ‘Galower’, a building firm that means as much to us now as then.
Galower Build started by building extensions to domestic property and undertaking small renovation projects. We constructed our first 4 bedroom, detached house in 1980. Under our careful management and direction and the support from all our employees, Galower Build has grown steadily and emerged from various recessions that floored many bigger companies. We now have an enviable reputation for building high-end residential, educational and commercial properties.
The clue to our success lies in our professional approach to every building project and the principles that we encourage our employees to adopt: a solid understanding of every stage of construction, high standards of work throughout and effective communication with all stakeholders.
We attended Twickenham College of Technology at the same time, and served our apprenticeships in carpentry, joinery and bricklaying. This grounding in traditional, core skills combined with a continued application of the latest building techniques, makes Galower Build an invaluable and trusted partner for architects and their clients. Reciprocal respect is what emerges.
