Our History


Bonser Building Contractors was originally founded in August 1979 by brothers Mr Steven and Mr John Bonser. During the early years of the business, Steven and John established contacts with various clients within the Midlands area. Over the early years of the business they both worked very closely with their clients setting high standards within the industry and gained a reputation for a high quality of workmanship and reliability to complete the job on time. As such word of mouth began to spread and further clients approached Bonser Building Contractors.

Several years after starting the business, Bonser Building Contractors were approached by Leicestershire County Councils department of property whom were interested in the company’s services, within a short period of time from this first contact Bonser Building Contractors had reached approved main contractor status performing works on behalf of the council throughout the whole of Leicestershire ranging from large school projects to day to day maintenance, Bonser Building Contractors maintained their approved main contractor status for over 30 years until 2010 when Leicestershire County Councils contracting structure was overhauled.

As times change so do working conditions, with new clients contacting us for work, the company now performed works mainly catered to the insurance and school/academy works but we have experience in may various projects.

The business is now under the revised partnership of Mr Steven Bonser, his two sons Mr Scott Bonser, and Mr Tristan Bonser, and long-time business colleague Mr Dean “Mitch” Mitchison. All four business partners believe that both the client and ourselves, the contractor should be united in a common aim to deliver the job on time, on budget, to specification and to a high standard of workmanship.
