About us

Who we are

C D Potter and Sons Limited are a general building contractor normally taking on the role as PRINCIPAL CONTRACTOR in the larger schemes; we specialise in all aspects of building maintenance & renovation & can successfully manage contracts ranging from “Day To Day” repairs to full refurbishment works up to £500,000.00 in value.

We have, at the moment, 19 staff on our books covering most trades required to carry out works to completion and this is backed up by a comprehensive list of subcontractors which we work with & scrutinise on a regular basis.

Still family owned

Still family owned

The Company is still owned by the Potter family but is run independently. We have been operating from our premises on Doncaster Road in Barnsley since the late 1800s turning Limited in 1928.

Always adapting

We have adapted to the changing requirements of the construction industry as and when required. We are able to accept orders via the traditional methods as well as by E-Mail. We are on many approved contractors lists including Hospital Trusts & Local Authorities in and around Yorkshire. More recently we have been successful in being approved on to the Efficiency North Framework agreement for 5 years.

Going the extra mile

We pride ourselves in the finish of a job & never have to advertise for work. We are a company which will all ways go the “Extra Mile” to ensure a job is left to the client’s satisfaction.

Traditional values

We stick to the traditional values of construction, we start when we say we are going to start & complete when we say we will complete. All our craftsmen are apprentice trained & work to a very high standard.



We have recently been accredited by Constructionline & we also are members of Construction Skills which we use for all our staff training needs & Apprenticeship requirements.

Our Health & Safety record is second to none (We have been CHAS approved as PRINCIPAL CONTRACTOR for the last 10 years) & are fully aware of our role and responsibilities under the current Health & Safety and C.D.M. Regulations.

Our main clients at the moment are Local Authority’s & NHS Trusts, this involves work in & around schools & different hospital departments & wards so we are fully conversant in working in occupied premises with members of the public being present.
