This was always going to be a challenge – getting a rear extension done at the start of the 2020 pandemic! We were so pleased to have selected Castle Construction for the project. As soon as work restrictions eased in May 2020, Scott and his team immediately set to work. The project was completed on time and within budget despite the lack of building supplies at times and the new “Covid” methods of working. His team, particularly Liam and Rory, were professional, friendly and took pride in their work. They kept us continuously up to date and were always happy to go that extra mile to get things done. The other thing that impressed from Castle was their communication. We knew we were on to a good thing when we started receiving detailed emails from Rebecca in the office, explaining, helping, and providing suggestions for the more difficult parts of the project. We would have no hesitation in recommending Castle Construction to others and we have in fact already done so with our neighbours up the road. We also have Castle back again doing some external work on the property.
Working as architects in Brighton and London we have experience of a very wide range of Contractors. I would say without hesitation that we find Castle Construction to be one of the best we have recently worked with. The quality of their work is excellent, and they bring projects in on time and to budget. Most importantly they are a pleasure to work with as an architect and as a Client. We would highly recommend Castle Construction and will continue to do so.
Appointing Castle Construction was an easy decision for us. They had a solid reputation in the area, having carried out multiple extensions and loft conversions for friends. We had been able to look at the good quality finish they achieve first hand and their services were highly recommended. Then when we met with Scott and Becca we immediately felt we were in a safe pair of hands, which was very reassuring. The team were friendly and reliable. The loft conversion mostly ran along in the background of family life, and was less disruptive than I had anticipated. Being a designer, I wanted a smart finish and Castles didn't disappoint. We wanted the wow factor and thanks to Scott and the team, we achieved it!
"Not only is the workmanship top quality, done to budget and time, but on top of that everyone is very friendly, kind and communicative."
“I have worked with Castle Construction on a number of residential projects including a complex basement conversion and various extension and refurbishment projects across Brighton & Hove. They have acted as foundation and groundworks contractor and main contractor on these projects and have delivered high quality projects on time and on budget. Scott is a very approachable and helpful contractor.”
“Castle Construction have built us our dream home extension. The end product is beyond our dreams and we pinch ourselves at the finished article. Like all builds things can be stressful and what Scott, Liam and the team did was make everything as simple as possible when going through a 3 month period of no kitchen having young children and a pregnant wife. The real area I believe they delivered on was time frames, it was on time. This is testament to the people in the team, they were conscientious and their attention detail, making our home liveable at the end of every day was outstanding. The quality of workmanship was exceptional, and they have delivered on every promise. I highly recommend Castle Construction and wish them all well for the future.”
Skilled, competent and experienced builders.
"The work on the loft renovation project was carried out in an efficient & empathetic way and to budget. The completed space looks excellent and really well finished. Everyone was helpful and easy to get on with and we appreciated how disruption during the project was kept to an absolute minimum."
"We used Castle Construction for a small basement project. From start to finish Scott and his team were completely supportive and really went the extra mile helping with things like building control and planning regulations, which was all new to us. The standard of work was excellent, and Scott was always on hand to solve problems and make sure things ran smoothly. I would thoroughly recommend Castle to anyone looking for a reliable, skilled and trustworthy building company."
“Castle Construction did an amazing job. We have never undertaken a big piece of building work before and Scott’s support and advice were invaluable, advising on the most cost effective approach, putting us in touch with structural engineers, recommending materials and manufacturers and guiding us through the building regulations process. The building work itself was managed impeccably; materials arrived on time, the team were well briefed and skilful, and the work was carried out to a very high standard and completed to budget and ahead of schedule.”
It's obvious that Becca & Scott really knows what they are talking about and this is clearly reflected in the quality of their work.
“We have worked with Castle Construction on numerous projects over the years with some truly excellent results. They are a great contractor to work with, and when on site we have found them to be easy to deal with, very knowledgeable, and with a real desire to ensure that nothing is too much in order to get the best results. We look forward to working on many other projects with Scott & his team in future.”
"Castle Construction first worked for us 3 years ago when they undertook a major extension to our main residence. Scott advised us that our best course of action was to move out for a couple of months during the work-one of many snippets of wisdom. The workers were always punctual and polite. Scott was extremely helpful, always answering questions and making helpful suggestions. The most noticeable difference between him and other builders we have used, was he carried out and followed through with what we had agreed. Since then, Castle have carried out other jobs for us on different properties at the same efficient standard. I have no hesitation in giving them my recommendation."
"Fair prices, trustworthy, good work, pleasant people to work with."
“Castle Construction are a great team! Castle was quick to get back to us with a good value quote and got us booked in in advance. They cracked on with the job and were as tidy as they can be during foundation works for our extension. They would arrive early to site and even came out of hours to assist when we had torrential rain during the build. They will manage the project with you – just think ahead of the things you want and consider your floor layout as early as possible. Their finish is of a very high standard and they will make sure they do a final tidy – they even cleaned our new bi fold doors and windows as well. Scott is well respected in the building industry and works with many trades so you have access to getting all the things you need to get a great finish such as bi fold doors, tiling and painting etc as well.”
“Mitchinson Macken Ltd are happy to recommend Castle Construction Ltd as one of our trusted contractors. We have had a 15 year plus relationship and completed numerous projects together over the years.”
