Design is in our DNA

We are innovators in house design and interior styling as our creative design team are dedicated to ensuring that Porter Davis remains at the forefront of design and style with ongoing product evolution and the development of inspiring new interior style themes.

We are also steadfast in our commitment to developing and innovating in areas of new product and construction methodologies. To do this, we maintain a proactive relationship with our suppliers, conduct R&D tours, here and abroad, and scour the world for design trends and innovation.

By providing our clients with the latest information regarding more energy efficient options, we aim to help home owners reduce their ongoing energy consumption costs, while ultimately reducing their footprint on the environment. We also believe using local trades, where possible, reduces our carbon footprint on material mileage and road tolls.

Importantly, we invest in an award winning creative team that develops new products and refines existing products to meet the needs of our ever-evolving market. This team of house and interior designers, plus a wider team of drafts people, estimators and procurement specialists, ensures that we remain leaders in product innovation.

Our Manifesto


So much more than bricks and mortar. More than an address people refer to. Even more than a hub of family life. We believe a new home is the foundation to the picture of how life should be. It promises the future and frames the past. It stands strong when dreams may weaken. It flexes to change, stays steady when life runs wild. To us, the idea of a home goes way beyond construction, or service, or design or style. It’s the very cornerstone of life’s hopes and aspirations.
At Porter Davis we’re for those people brave enough to create their dreams around a new home. We appreciate the fragility of such visions and we exist to protect and nurture those dreams and those who hold them tight. At the end of the day, building a house is quite simply building a future, one brick at a time. It’s why above all, we respect the dream.

Our Values


For each other and for our customer. Listen more talk less. Treat each other with courtesy. Most of all, for our customers, respect their dreams, their needs and their challenges. Appreciate the fragile nature of their big dreams. Fight against compromise.


Have a heroic view of how great this company can be and how great you can be within it. Live the belief with passion, putting conviction and commitment into all we do. This is more than going to work. This is about a shared belief in the notion that what we do matters. So care enough to commit.


Be you. Feel comfort in being honest and true to yourself. Be authentic. Say it as it needs to be said - to each other and to our customer. At its simplest, 'real' is about being natural, and down to earth. It means plain speaking and direct honesty with customers. It's not political or overly safe, but rather human and instinctive.

Together (One)

This is more than ‘teamwork’, it's about forming a tribe where the power of one united effort is unstoppable. It is a passion for where you belong and who you work alongside. It is about backing each other, having a common cause and sticking to the game plan. Jump in when the side is down. Celebrate the wins together. Stick together. Don't give up.
