Some Of Our Work

Client Views


We needed the extra space at home but loved our current house and didn't want to move so we decided to get The Building Co guys round to quote for an extension. We are so glad we did as they took care of everything from start to finish.

Simon Flynn Extension

We had The Building Co complete a loft conversion for us. Their knowledge is unrivalled which helped us make the right decision to build up rather than out meaning we kept all of our much loved garden.

Mary Chaftwood Loft Conversion

Our garage was used as a dumping ground for all sorts but when I had to start working from home we made the decision to convert it. Alan, Lewis and the rest of the team did a fantastic job of creating a brand new office and utility room .

Freddie Greene Garage Conversion

When the building Co team started our project I couldn't have been happier with their professionalism and knowledge. They look care of everything from demolition of the old bungalow to the construction of the new house.
