About Us

A family founded and managed business, based in Helensburgh, Stewart & Shields Building Contractors, has successfully grown in scale, reputation and experience since the early 1950s.

With our head office in Helensburgh and offices in the east end of Glasgow, Port Glasgow and in the Borders, we serve the whole of Scotland with industry leading buildings.

The Company was first set up by Jim Shields Snr and Alex Stewart over 60 years ago, and now son, Jim Shields and grandsons, Mark and Richard Shields, are proud to continue the vision of providing an ever-improving service, delivering safe, reliable projects on time, to budget and to the highest quality.

From single units to multi-million pound developments, we deploy our expert knowledge of traditional build methods, combined with pioneering solutions.

Clients can trust our insight and experience of building services, no matter the scale of the project. We share all stages of the build process with our clients, with complete transparency.

As well as having a dedicated point of contact throughout the project, clients can benefit from the software ‘Procore’ that we use, specifically designed for the construction industry. This allows, monitoring of all details from drawings and specification to costs and on-site progress.

Our core team are trained and accredited by the Passive House Institute, giving our clients added value and access to industry leading credentials to create buildings that will meet all future government standards.
