By Chris Docherty, Founder and Director of Docherty Property.
Docherty Property is a creative design and build company. We work in building and construction primarily in the domestic sector and complete anything from large scale builds to bespoke kitchens and staircase installations. We also complete many of the technical aspects of property construction, such as the electrical wiring in house.
My wife and I moved to Cornwall in 2015 and built our family home just outside St Agnes on the North Coast. Prior to our move I had been to sea to train as a Marine Engineer but decided to discontinue my long journeys at sea in order to focus on property and starting a family ashore. I proudly incorporated Docherty Property in 2012.
Building my own family home has allowed me to experience the construction industry from both sides – I have been the self-builder and the contractor which allows me to empathise with clients about all aspects of their project. I appreciate the value of concise communication with clients, particularly when it comes to budgets and scheduling and the importance of a personable style when working so closely.
One of my passions is woodwork. You will notice looking through our portfolio that this passion has been echoed in many of the projects that we complete. We like to discuss the use genuine, environmentally friendly, durable materials with our clients wherever possible which is why we offer solid wood kitchens, constructed in our typically robust style. We have a dedicated workshop containing heavy woodworking machinery that allows us to create almost anything that our customers request.
