Whilst being noted for both their long established traditional qualities of craftsmanship, Percy Williams have frequently been ahead of the game and this prevails in more recent times and developments.

Today Simon Williams, and previously his father Leonard maintained a genuine commitment to bold contemporary living exuding in legacy projects such as St Ives beach fronts Piazza and Barnaloft.

Just a few years ago, The Princes Foundation worked with us and our partners in rescuing the former Miners Hospital at Redruth.
