About Us

A Note From Graham……

I started Graham Ottaway Builders in 1996 after working in the building trade with my father, then doing my carpentry apprenticeship locally.
After which I worked for several different local firms before branching out on my own and thus becoming building contractors in our own right.

We pride ourselves on using local labour and always carry out works to the highest of standards.

We are main building contractors to Coleg Powys in Newtown with various contracts been carried out from maintenance to major refurbishment over the past ten years.

We also have carried out extensive works (value over £500k) for Dyfed Powys police in recent years, refurbishing their stations, new extensions and roofing works.

Also we carry out many other aspects of the building trade, working with hotels, pubs, shops, factories, schools and general building.

We are now also working for First choice housing association throughout Mid Wales’s area carrying out building works.

As part of our company, we also have our own sites which we develop including sites in Newtown (12 homes) and Llanfair Caereinon (9 homes)
plus also a shop which is now a Costcutter.

Over a dozen barn conversions that have been carried out throughout Mid Wales and Shropshire.

In house we have all our plant machinery, scaffolding, smaller hand tools, site offices, and labour we have carpenters, bricklayers, roofer’s, plasterers, and labourers in full time employment with us.

We also have a large base of local subcontractors, including painters, electricians, plumbers and ground workers, available immediately.

Values of contracts we take on are from £100 to £1.5 + million, Dependent on customer’s requirements and schedule of works.

Training and up to date health & safety checks on plant, machinery and staff are carried out regularly and we have professional advice and meetings with these people when needed on contracts.

Over the years we have worked across the whole of the UK, carrying out works for MacDonald’s Hotels, refurbishing apartments and suites.

Also we are main builders to the Treffedian Hotel Aberdyfi, the biggest private hotel on the Cambrian coast line. Including modernisation and new build kitchens and rooms.

With a good customer relationship with our existing customers, where we get a lot of repeat works, and with new leads and clients, we have many references to new clients if needed and we find once used we get repeat works time and time again and recommendations from our existing clients.
