About us

We are an award winning family run building company established in 1973. Since then we have built our reputation around high quality workmanship and excellent customer service. Based in Great Yeldham, Essex we work predominantly in the towns and rural areas of East Anglia.

As general builders we have a wealth of experience in all aspects of construction (please see below for a list of our services) and we are happy to undertake jobs and projects of all sizes.

Working in a region which is home to many ancient buildings has allowed us to accumulate extensive expertise in the restoration of period properties and barn conversions. Our projects often involve listed properties which require a close working relationship with conservation officers. Our experienced craftsmen use traditional methods and materials which are in keeping with the heritage of your property.

Where appropriate we apply the latest building techniques and materials to create homes which are strong and efficient. Drawing on over 30 years of experience working on properties old and new we build homes and extensions with quality and character.

Our customer focused approach places our clients at the centre of the building process both in terms of specifying the work to be done and selecting materials and finishes to be used. We strive to keep our customers consistently informed and consulted during the construction process in order to guarantee the final result is exactly as they desire. We ensure all of our tradesmen are very approachable and encourage our clients not to hesitate in asking if they have any queries whatsoever.
