The Morrish family have been one of the foremost and innovative building companies in the South for 60 years.
This highly skilled and dynamic local Poole based company has taken pride in setting the standards in construction excellence.
In 1982, following thirty years of house building with Cummings and Morrish Ltd, Les Morrish formed Morrish Builders with his two sons, Steve and Dave, who had already created their own successful building company, following Steve’s training as an Architectural Technician and Dave’s training as a Carpenter
Morrish Builders continued the house building tradition on various sites in Dorset and also introduced a commercial property construction operation which, over time, produced a large property investment portfolio. Les Morrish retired in 1992.
During the mid 1990’s the Company introduced its “Heritage Homes” division specialising in building homes reflecting the Dorset village vernacular, utilising local labour and sustainable materials such as thatch, flint and render. The concept proved popular and was utilised on the majority of the Company’s developments in Dorset and Devon.
The Morrish Builders portfolio shows a diverse range of residential and commercial development, where classic design integrates successfully with the more contemporary.
In 1999 the Company’s excellent track record led it to become involved with The Duchy of Cornwall’s “Poundbury” Dorchester. “Poundbury” is an urban extension to Dorchester which will eventually comprise some 2000 homes and business units, reflecting HRH the Prince of Wales’ vision to create a traditional, mixed use, sustainable development creating a sense of place and community for the people that live and work there.
The Company’s ability to be able to work in consortium with other developers and landowners to deliver sustainable communities to an exceptionally high quality and architectural standard, whilst extracting best land value for the landowner, has led it to become involved in Consortium with other large developers. The Duchy of Cornwall’s Newquay Growth Area, some 3000 homes over a 20 year period and also a large development site of 2000 homes in Romsey. Both are developments where the Landowner wishes to leave a legacy for future generations.
In addition to its building operations the Company has interests in properties overseas and also a 400 acre woodland and conservation area on the Arne Peninsula, overlooking Poole Harbour.
