ABOUT US

We offer our clients, a bespoke one-stop design and build service, leaving an immaculate finish at an affordable cost.

Design and Build London is a family run business that specialises in improving and extending family homes. We co-ordinate all aspects of the project, including the design, planning permission, party wall notices and the building works. We ensure all relevant certificates are obtained and, upon completion, we provide you with a guarantee for the work. The philosophy of our company is based on five key principles:

1. Transparency – We believe that the key to a strong working relationship is transparency. That is why we produce a full schedule of works that breaks down the project into simple weekly targets that correlate to payments, making it clear what to expect.

2. Communication – It is vital to the success of a project that we have a clear channel of communication with our clients. A Project Co-ordinator will be assigned to you when the first draft plans are produced and will work with you right through to the completion of the building works. They will be your main point of contact throughout the process.

3. Leadership – We have worked hard to build a strong work force that represents Design & Build London in the best possible light. Our Project Co-ordinators are articulate, organised and approachable, whilst our site foremen are experienced and reliable. In order to attract and retain the very best workmen we make sure we give them the training and tools they need.

4. Quality – Residential building work requires a high level of attention to detail. Creating a great structure isn’t enough, its the cosmetic elements that everybody looks at and talks about, we take pride in the plastering, brickwork, rendering and roofing so that our product has a distinct feel that is reflected across all of our projects.

5. Recommendations – We are a small business that relies on recommendations; we don’t just want our customers to walk away satisified, we want them to actively tell their friends and family about the positive experience they have had with us. We always sit down with our customers at the end of each project to ask for feedback as we constantly strive to improve.

All of the projects showcased on this website are examples of work undertaken by Design & Build London. We have tried to cover the most common designs for extensions and loft conversions in the Greater London area within our Costings page to help develop of sense of whats achievable with your home, and also provide you with some information about the permissions required to carry out the work. We hope you find the content helpful.

What our clients are saying

Design and Build London have delivered a fantastic service from the beginning to end. I was recommended Design and Build London through a neighbour who was happy with their service. The builders have done a fantastic job with our kitchen extension and full house renovation. The attention to detail from all the tradesman has been exceptional.

Linda Williams, Google Reviews

Design & Build London renovated my house and built an 2 storey extension including moving the bathroom upstairs and creating a kitchen diner downstairs. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Builders and decorators had a great eye for detail, was very responsive, trustworthy and conscientious throughout.

Laura Stevens, Google Reviews

We are really pleased with Design & Build London who recently completed our Kitchen extension to a very high standard. We were very impressed with the end to end service. Work was completed on schedule and efficiently, taking into account a pre arranged 2 week break for Christmas.

Racheal Smith, Google Reviews

I love decorating but I had so many ideas I didn’t know where to begin and wasn’t confident enough to make choices. My designer helped me clear the clutter, prioritize and now my place looks better than I could have dreamt it up myself
