About Rihoy & Son


A tremendous effort by all of you at Rihoy & Son. Thank you. I believe it’s unlikely that any other contractor could have delivered this so well.

I have no hesitation in recommending Rihoy & Son, they have made it easy to achieve my desired result with the cooperation of Paul and Anne Langlois. Their entire team, and in particular Alan Blake, have been very helpful in completing a fine job.

We commissioned Rihoy & Son to do internal and external works to our property. They were efficient and completed the works with minimal disruption to our lives. They also came in on time and budget. We can highly recommend the project management skills of Dan Taylor who was a pleasure to work with.

The project was delivered under strict time constraints, with a number of essential sub-contractors and design specialists and changing requirements as the project evolved.

“Dave Tostevin was instrumental in delivering this project and his considerable efforts in programming and organising the works is, in my view, a major factor in delivery.”

Our History

Originally established by John William Rihoy in 1924, the company started working exclusively for the horticulture industry, building and maintaining glasshouses.

The business diversified after World War II when John, affectionately known as Jack, constructed his first carpenter’s shop behind the family home in the Ville Baudu, Vale.

From 1950 until 1990, John Rihoy jnr, Jack’s son, made the business his life's work and took it forward to become one of the most successful building contractors in Guernsey.

In 1958, Rihoy & Son relocated to its current home at Sandy Hook, L’Islet. The business has expanded its operations significantly to include the construction of new housing, domestic extensions, refurbishment, major projects for the finance, hotel and tourist trade, the industrial sector and the States of Guernsey.

The company’s chairman, Jeremy Rihoy, and managing director, Gavin Rihoy, are third generation Rihoys working for the privately owned family company.
