Overlooking Bermuda on Loyal Hill Road sits D.T. Construction. Located in the Devonshire parish, this contracting company is not far from a prime piece of real estate. The Palmetto House is a true example of Bermuda architecture. Perhaps being so close to the historic house has influenced the company's work.
Captain William Williams built the house when he settled in Bermuda in 1634. When the British army took over Devonshire in 1868, they claimed the Palmetto home to use as their club house. When they weren’t stationed in a nearby fort, they entertained themselves on the property.
Today, the 2,050-square-foot property is owned by the Bermuda National Trust. Over the years, many families have leased the property under the agreement that they preserve the historic value of the 300-year-old site. For example, Mo Ware — the former director of civil aviation — and his wife lived in the house for 40 years. His small private plane was kept on display at the property.
The Bermuda National Trust has spent more than one million dollars renovating the house. Unlike many historic renovations, they repaired rather than replaced, retaining the historic charm. The same claw-foot tub sits in the bathroom, taking you back to the 1700s. Spend a romantic night in front of the fireplace in the master suite. A separate guest cottage also sits on the property, in case there are some rowdy visitors who don’t appreciate the history.
All of these historic amenities might inspire D.T. Construction. Not only are they a contracting company, but their services extend to tank cleaning as well. They strive to provide the best service at the most competitive market prices. Integrity and honesty are important to them in their relationships with suppliers, subcontractors and customers.
To make sure everything goes smoothly, it is important they have good relationships with every aspect of construction. Like the Palmetto House, it helps to have an appreciation for architecture in any work they complete.
