David H Allan

One of the Leading Commercial Contractors in the UK

Our company journey began in 1983 and over the years we are proud of the long-lasting relationships that we have forged with our clients.

Back in 1983 we began trading as a small joinery, shopfitting and building business that was set up by our founder David H Allan who has now retired from the business. The business is now 2nd generation owned and run by David’s son George Allan with the support of a board of directors, senior management and several divisional teams.

Our company David H Allan is now a leading commercial contractor in its field which has grown and diversified over the years working on projects across the public and commercial private sectors.

David H Allan continues to be strong in our field due to our passion for innovation and excellence delivered by a skilled and experienced team of up to 100 staff and trade operatives. We place good communication on projects from start to finish as paramount to all that we do. 

While we continue to build an enviable project portfolio, it is without doubt our teamwork ethos and dedication to delivering quality and exceeding client requirements that mark our ability to grow long lasting relationships, with a substantial part of our business secured through years of repeat business.
