About us

We’re a family business

We’re Corella. We’re a family-run Wiltshire-based building contractor delivering high-quality, residential and commercial projects across our home county, and Bath and North East Somerset (BANES), West Berkshire and the South Cotswolds. 

We’re a socially-conscious company committed to delivering projects that are built with precision and passion, and a commitment to longevity and sustainability.

With us, there are no short-cuts and no compromises; just quality constructed buildings to be proud of – and excellent customer service.

Our three step process

1. Starting off on the right foot

We build a thorough understanding of all the factors that impact and shape the cost of your project. We then prepare an itemised quote which we’ll talk through in detail and answer any questions. We aim to be fully transparent and ensure you know what is included (or not) and contractually document this.

 

We clearly communicate what’s what – with a payment and project schedule, a progress tracker, a contingency and provisional sum tracker, variation orders, legal documents and key personnel and project contacts.

2. The power of communication

Throughout your project, we communicate and record schedule/costs and any changes, regular meetings and updates. You’ll also have a direct point of contact at our end to keep you up to speed.


We only work with tried and tested, highly skilled and experienced subcontractors / tradespeople. Often, we manage this relationship, but, if you prefer to deal directly that’s absolutely fine too. We’re flexible, organised and happy to work in a way that suits you.

3. We're here when you need us

Once your project is at the completion stage, we don’t just walk away. We work hard to establish a lasting relationship with our clients. Should you ever have any questions or need some building advice, we’re here to help.

 

Don’t forget, we are members of the Federation of Master Builders (who keep an eye on our work and our processes to ensure we uphold their values) and we’re independently checked for Health & Safety too. As an ethical and socially conscious business, we’re absolutely committed to ensuring quality.

Supporting positive mental health

The construction industry is in the midst of a mental health crisis. This is something we want to change. We’re proud supporters of Mates in Mind, a charity that campaigns for more open conversations about mental health in our sector. We believe mental and physical safety and wellbeing need equal focus – and we’ve developed working practices and a nurturing culture to support this thinking.

Led by our Co-Founder Aisling, a trained mental health first aider, we work hard to raise awareness within our team on mental health issues. Aisling takes the lead in ensuring we stamp-out potential causes of isolation and poor mental health. For example, we know the harm so-say harmless ‘banter’ on-site can cause. And, we don’t encourage late/weekend work as standard.

Health & Safety

Health & Safety is not a tick-box exercise at Corella. We work with specialist H&S advisors to ensure we understand the potential risks involved in our daily operations; we educate our employees on safe working practices; and we empower our team to maintain a safe working environment.

We’re a people business

Transparent

Honesty and integrity are cornerstones of our business. We provide detailed, itemised quotes; we communicate clearly and regularly; and there’s no hiding away when you want to talk.

Adaptable

Building projects can be daunting and time-consuming. To keep lines of communication open and personal preferences respected, we assign a dedicated project manager to every build.

Health & Safety

Health & Safety is our priority and not just a tick-box exercise. We take great pains to ensure compliance with current regulations on every job in relation to our people as well as the site and equipment.

Sustainable

We all know there is no ‘Plan B’. When it comes to carbon efficiency; waste minimisation and sustainability, we do all we can to enhance the natural environment, not detract from it.

Accountable

Communication is key. We see every part of our supply-chain – and the actions of our own teams – as accountable. We take ownership, and keep you updated every step of the way.

Collaborative

For us, ‘together is better’. We work in a collaborative way with you, trusted suppliers, contractors and architects as one holistic team to deliver your project as efficiently as possible.

Supportive

We are active supporters of mental health charity Mates in Mind. Our team’s wellbeing is a top priority; and we are working hard to change the conversation around mental wellbeing in our industry.
