What We Do


We are one of the south and south easts leading construction specialist companies working predominantly in the public sector. We pride ourselves in providing a first class service over the last 40+ years to Hospitals, medical centres and universities.

We specialise in refurbishment, conversion works along with new build extension projects, predominantly in the public sector. We regularly work in Hospitals, Medical Centres and University campuses.

Refurbishment projects often come with their own specific challenges, especially where the environment needs to remain operational for as much time as possible during the project, or when working near the general public is required.

We are BMTRADA certified to supply and install Fire Doorsets and also to carry out Fire Stopping.   We have completed various projects recently which required Fire Door installation and Fire Stopping. We are able to meet all requirements for clients from design stage of the Doorsets and Fire Stopping, installation of the items and certifying at completion.

We work closely with client’s project management team to ensure each refurbishment project is carried out with the utmost care and attention paid to safety and your day-to-day operating requirements.

All of our site managers and project/contract managers are all SMSTS qualified.

Carried out training courses in Asbestos Awareness and Health and Safety in Construction.


Our Approach

Every project involves a high level of management to co-ordinate every aspect of works to ensure the clients requirements, quality and timing are met.

From start to finish we apply a high level of management to co-ordinate all aspects of the project to ensure delivery meets with the client’s requirements focusing on quality, timing and liaison with all concerned.

To create a safe working environment for everybody involved either directly or indirectly.

Where there are specific challenges brought about by location or technical design our dedicated talented team will, at an early stage, recognise these challenges to allow the early design of a methodology to overcome these challenges.


Our Mission

We passionately believe that people and communication are key to success. Our management team build relationships with project managers, clients, designers, end users including all those effected during the delivery of the project. It is crucial that all those occupying the space surrounding the project are respected and liaised with to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

At Burren and Whitaker Construction Ltd, we are committed to delivering healthcare construction projects to an exceptional standard – and with minimal disruption.

We understand that healthcare construction projects bring with them their own set of unique challenges, particularly when working within a live hospital. These might include infection control, access issues, working around state-of-the-art hospital equipment and minimising disruption to staff and patients. Our understanding of these issues means we’re well-placed to deliver healthcare projects through our careful and considered approach, paying an unrivalled level of attention to the strategic planning phase of the project.

From large-scale NHS-compliant refurbishments to high-spec private remodels, we are experienced in creating smart, structured environments that are designed to increase comfort and convenience to patients and staff alike.



Our specialist knowledge of construction in the education sector along with our history of delivering high-quality projects on time and on budget, has made us one of the go-to university construction companies in the South East of England.

We know that Universities are often faced with tight budgets and timescales, which is why we work closely with the school throughout each and every stage of the project, keeping them informed and developing open lines of communication so any issues can be dealt with swiftly and proactively.




Burren and Whitaker Construction now specialises working in anti-ligature, ‘Caring Environments’. We undertake contracts in mental health live wards, emergency departments, and construction environments, however, we fully appreciate and adapt to the challenges that working in live environments can present. A significant part of our work is with specialist anti-ligature locks, door sets, ironmongery, door alarms and access control.
