From Shovel to Key, Make your Dreams a Reality!



Do you dream of building your home from the ground up? Whatever your dream house may be, you would agree that those awe-inspiring structures didn’t emerge out of the blue. Even a sky-high dream requires a down-to-earth plan of action. Getting the right people for the job is crucial in achieving your construction goals, and the right people for any construction job can be found at Atlas Construction (BVI) LTD. Atlas Construction’s acting Managing Director, Vaughn Williams Dyer, shared with us just how the company has been building dreams for over 12 years.


A friend once said to Vaughn, “Don’t say you’re making a plan – because a plan can change. Instead, say you’re going to make the vision because the vision can’t change”. These very words have formed the foundation that the company is now built on. The company started as every business does, with a dream. But this evolved in 2009 when Kieran Scatliffe decided to be, Vaughn says, “the dreamer who dared” and officially established the company. Vaughn himself is also a dreamer and has been dreaming about a career in the world of construction since the tender age of 12.

“I knew I’d made up my mind at the age of 12; I had a fond interest in buildings, and I still love to admire structures. I studied them at that young age for both their form and their function, and over the years, I would discover faults in their design and envisioned other solutions for spaces and orientations. By the time I was mid-teen, I could read plans, layout and set profiles, deck, form columns, and beams, make up reinforcement (which is tough), know the different mixes, render, and screed concrete. I also knew tiling, basic cabinetry, and painting.” – Vaughn


As a result of dreams like Kieran’s and Vaughn’s, Atlas Construction has become one of the leading construction companies in the Virgin Islands. “Today we see the dreams of some of our most visionary business owners being lived out on the crescent of our atmosphere”, Vaughn told us, “because they dared to dream and chase the vision”.

Today, Atlas Construction is a one-stop construction service. Although construction is their primary service, the company has many other offerings. The company is committed to creating new and innovative services for the public, and Vaughn has even shared one of its latest initiatives. “To each and every reader,” he began, “that the time for you to take a step to own your own home can now be realised with Atlas Construction Ltd. through our Home Ownership Programme for Everyone (HOPe) initiative.”  This HOPe initiative is one that, when initiated, will guarantee a path to homeownership. It will directly foster a sustainable system and be backed entirely by a corporation founded by the programme’s members. When asked why he is so passionate about homeownership, Vaughn told us:

I wish to embark on a building system to serve the needs of an aging and statistically inequitable youth population desiring to ‘put down a foundation. We are near the age where borrowing funds would be more sternly evaluated due to age limitations and wealth (usually capital), in which many may never get the opportunity. This is a conscious decision to take the next few years and commit me to expand the idea of forming a functioning system to assist Virgin Islanders on a path to homeownership through the HOPe programme”.

Vaughn added that future promotion dates and sign-up activities would be advertised and held in August 2021.

With a firm focus on quality, the company also provides a wide range of other services to the public and private sectors, including design-build assistance, general contracting, construction management, estimating design services, and all phases of trade contracting.
