“Jan Burroughs brings a skilled craftsman’s eye to every aspect of a project.”  Richard Horsler

What We Do

 We offer a comprehensive range of construction services, from period property restoration to new builds and everything in between.

Working alongside architects, designers, planning officers, building inspectors and project stakeholders we manage every stage of the project from initial brief to final handover, ensuring seamless project management and exceptional results.

“Most importantly for me as a designer – and also for the client – Jan is willing to sit down and resolve problems in a way that eludes most builders. His approach to problem solving is always positive.” Brendan Haworth, Haworth McCall Consulting

Why Choose Us

Our thorough approach and commitment to quality underpins everything we do.

With 40 years’ experience in the building industry working on buildings both old and new, we have a wealth of knowledge of traditional and contemporary construction techniques and materials.

Our detailed project costings break down each element of the build so you know exactly what each part will cost. If extra works arise as the project progresses, these variations are costed and agreed before the work commences. This means that clients will never be asked to pay for something that they haven’t already approved.

Having this level of insight and control over the financials throughout the project and knowing there will be no surprises helps alleviate much of the stress for clients and allows them to focus on the more enjoyable aspects.
