Lee Construction was formed in 1984 by Lee Higgins. Lee was originally a Carpenter working in London on individual housing developments and then diversified into contracting. Lee Construction was incorporated in 1999 and became known as Lee Construction Ltd. In 2017, Leon Acquisitions was created and carry out small works, buy to let properties & refurbishments. To date, Lee Construction Ltd have a workforce of 95, consisting of 78 male and 3 female Carpenters, and 14 apprentices.

Working for Lee Construction has given me a wide scope of work, allowing me to further my experience in every area of Carpentry, as well as encouraging me to become a Supervisor. Good quality place to work.
