Conservation & Listed Buildings
Having spent many years working on period and listed buildings in the rural South West we appreciate the traditional methods of construction such as the use of lime mortar and natural stone. This, combined with up to date technology and materials mean our clients benefit from modern styling coupled with traditional techniques to give the perfect balance of old and new.
RG Johnson Construction are able to provide a complete service, helping to design your project from start to finish. We’ll take care of everything including: Listed building consent, planning applications and structural calculations. We will also work from drawings provided independently by other professionals, architects or surveyors, or on your own instructions.
Renovation / Alteration
Working with stone, slate or granite is an art form of building. Each piece is individual and placement is key to the completed project. RG Johnson Construction have experienced partners within the local quarries and reclamation services who can advise on matching stone and brick to ensure that any additions to properties, whether listed or not, blend with existing materials.
Ralph is a highly skilled Stonemason with many years of experience. He has been privileged to have had the opportunity to work on many listed buildings and barn conversions, as well as the more basic garden walls. More recently we have been awarded a contract with Chard Methodist Church.

We are highly skilled in a broad range of formwork projects, including retaining walls, ground beams and concrete frames. From Public to Private sector, commercial to domestic, we will deliver to your requirements and to the agreed deadline.
We can manage groundworks on developments from site clearance, drainage systems, laying foundations right up to damp proof course for new builds providing the perfect canvas to start the building work.
Our skilled work force has provided numerous hard landscaping services covering site strip and deposition of topsoil, major excavation, filling, disposal works, site preparation / enabling works, removal of contaminated ground and subsequent remediation.

Extensions and New Builds
If you have the space available, an extension can bring a new dimension to your living area and enhance your property. Even a small extension can bring a dramatic improvement to the way you live.
RG Johnson Construction can help and guide you through all the necessary legal and technical requirements and decisions. You may require the services of an Architect who will look at your property as well as listen to your needs and budget, and we can recommend and advise you in this decision if you do not already have drawings prepared. We understand that extending your home is a major expense and a decision never taken lightly. We endeavor to make the process as stress-free as possible.
We can project manage the whole process, should that be your requirement, for example; with a kitchen extension, in addition to the structure of the extension, we can help with the design and placement of kitchen cabinets, the style and material of the kitchen worktops, the sink and taps, tiles and flooring; all working to your budget and taste.
We have successfully completed an extensive range of property extensions during our many years in business, from traditional to modern, and both large and small scale.
