Intro to
DeVille & Lear Ltd

With over 70 years of experience as construction engineers, DeVille & Lear specialise in portal framed buildings and can construct almost any type of steel framed building — including agricultural and industrial buildings — from the smallest lean-to extension through to industrial warehouses with spans of up to 40 metres.

Based in Derbyshire, we operate as construction engineers for portal framed buildings throughout the entire UK mainland, serving the various areas with our own erection and cladding teams.

Repeat orders of steel framed buildings from existing customers form over 60% of our order book at any one time, and we are pleased that a number of our customers can be named as county councils, the Crown Estate, and a growing number of privately owned estates.
