About Beard

Beard is a top regional construction company with offices in Swindon, Oxford and Guildford. 

We design, build, restore and refurbish buildings throughout the South of England. Our projects range in size from smaller schemes to complex construction projects worth up to £10 million.

Beard is an independent long-established business that was formed by George Beard in Swindon in 1892. In December 1934, E W Beard Limited was incorporated.

The present Chairman Alan Beard, and Chief Executive Mark Beard, are the third and fourth generation of the family.

Beard opened an office in Oxford in 1964 and more recently, in 2009, we continued our expansion with an office in Guildford.

The business has developed considerably in recent years. It remains independent and family owned, but run by a team of highly qualified professional Directors and Managers. The company operates from its freehold premises in the three locations, and has invested in up to date systems and processes to ensure that traditional skills are complimented by the modern back office.

Today Beard continues to be at the cutting edge of building contracting. As recession struck in 2008 the company reported a record turnover of £56 million; turnover continues to grow.

The Business Plan, which the staff and Directors are working to, utilises the very strong financial position of the company and the security of the independence of family shareholding as keystones to continued growth, through strong customer relationships and excelling in project delivery.
