DSD had very humble beginnings as Dennis Nugent set the company up with his sons, Shaun and Darren back in 1993; forming the name DSD. From this we have grown into the unique and successful company you see today.

What makes us unique is the fact we're more than your standard construction and hire business, we're a family run business and we go that extra mile to give you the tailored and personal service you deserve. Being a family run business we have a unique organisational structure; integrating this with our recourse, we're able to offer full services for all construction and civil engineering requirements to anywhere throughout the UK; all whilst being cost effective, reliable and tailored to specific needs.

We specialise in all aspects of road works and civil engineering, utilising our in house management team with over 30 years experience, along with a team of fully qualified skilled trade operatives.

About DSD Construction in Carlisle, Cumbria

We are experienced & approved installers of Clause 942 Thin Surface Courses and are certificated to lay Cemexs Viatex and Hansons Tuffpave systems. We have also gained National Highways Sector Scheme 16 approval for the laying of asphalt mixes.

We can offer a range of construction needs from road servicing and civil engineering to plant hire of dozens of products. As we are ideally placed in various market sectors, this means we can offer genuine customer service and reliable delivery of quality services and products. We're a trusted name in civil engineering and currently work with local authorities, regional councils and most contractors throughout the UK, on a variety of valued contracts. These can vary from £5,000 to £5,000,000, but they are all equally important to us here at DSD and are given the personal tailoring and ensured quality, each deserves.
