about us

Glass Beach is a family owned and run Limited company, based in the heart of Cornwall. As Directors and brothers-in-law Alex and Alan run the day to day on site activities and as such have an active hands on approach. Clare is the Company Secretary, and as such runs the payroll, finances and administration for Glass Beach. She is also long standing wife to Alex and prefers to avoid the grubby side of the building industry!

Together we have made Glass Beach what it is today: A friendly, honest and open general building company with a superb reputation.
