We are Malcolm and Daniel, a successful father and son team who together make up our family business. Between us, we have a wealth of experience and expertise which give us confidence in the work we do, and the results that we achieve.
We couldn't do it all without some backup, and so we also have Dave who works fulltime alongside us. In the background, but no less important, is Janet who runs our office and handles our general enquiries. If you email us, it is likely to be Janet who replies.
Malcolm has been working in the building industry for over 45 years, and most of that time has been spent in and around St Agnes, his hometown. He started his working life as an apprenticed carpenter with a large Newquay based Company, where he learnt and fine tuned his skills working on large projects and was eventually in charge of carpenters on site. By his mid twenties Malcolm decided he wanted to run his own business, and so in 1973 Malcolm R Carveth Builders became a reality and he hasn't looked back.
In his spare time Malcolm is a keen singer and part of the Holman Climax Male Voice Choir. He is partial to the odd meal out, and enjoys travels around Europe and sometimes further afield! Being from St Agnes, Malcolm has a particular affinity to the village and surrounding areas.
Daniel joined Malcolm in 1990 as an apprenticed carpenter, working part-time while studying at Cornwall College. Since this time Daniel has worked for, and then alongside Malcolm gaining experience and knowledge. Daniel is a particularly talented carpenter; skills he uses on a daily basis and also an accomplished mason.
Daniel has taken on an increased amount of the responsibility for the Building business, as Malcolm divides his time between Building and Funeral Directing.
In days gone by Daniel was a keen football player, playing for St Agnes and Truro teams. These days he has three children and not a lot of free time!
Dave has worked beside Malcolm and Daniel for the past 5 years. He is a hard working young man with a very pleasing personality.
