About Calleo Construction

Who we are

Our core values have been shaped over the past 40 years in our original company, A & M Baker Brickwork, which has been passed on to Calleo Constructions like a father does to son. In doing so we, the Calleo Construction team, have learnt valuable lessons, allowing us to develop our selves, hone our skills and further our knowledge. This has pushed us and our newly emerging company to create aesthetically pleasing buildings which we have nurtured to fit personally for each and every one of our clients.

Not only do we run this company like a family, our name originates from the two grandsons of Martin Baker. Martin Baker is the founder of the company, who fell into the bricklaying business because of his father-in-law who set up the sister company, A & M Baker Brickwork, in the early 70’s.

It is said that all the best things come in three’s, yet here at Calleo Constructions we are proving daily that the best things come in four’s – Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Father and Son.
