From the outset, David and his team had every part of my loft conversion covered and handled it all expertly. David was always very easy to contact and provided his expertise throughout the process. All of his team were very friendly and polite. I am truly so happy with the finished project and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have this type of work done.
Dave Bishop and his team worked for me for 10 months during 2010. The challenge was to turn a wreck into a home that was not just habitable, but charming and practical. The work was complicated - the house is tall and narrow with no easy access from the street, and had a very steep garden which needed excavating. Sixty skips were filled from the garden. There were other unforeseen problems along the way - there always would be on a job of this scale - but Dave met them all with equanimity, and found solutions to them all. Throughout the entire job (during which I was out of action for six weeks having an operation), Dave remained absolutely in charge, calm and solution-driven. His team are personable, thoughtful and considerate (and highly skilled). The quality of the work was extremely high; Dave doesn't cut corners, and despite being out of my comfort zone having never embarked on a project of this nature before, I never once worried about the standard of work. Dave always responded immediately to phone calls and there was never a day when the builders didn't turn up (or turned up late, whatever). Dave came to me on the highest recommendation of a friend, and I would be happy to recommend him onwards.
From the beginning of our project David gave us great ideas and guidance. The team working with us were very professional and real craftsmen, taking care to reach a high quality finish at each part of the project. David's consultative approach has meant that there were no surprises and the result was exactly what we wanted. Having lived in our new space for a couple of months now we love it and haven't found anything we would change! A great team to work with - thanks for the care and expertise.
In September 2015 my husband and I commissioned David Bishop design and build to undertake a two-storey extension to our 1930's chalet style home, the first of its kind granted permission on our road. The project was on time, on budget, and mindful of our neighbours. We also benefited from David's unusual design-led perspective on the build which included a stunning garden renovation. We have had the pleasure in recommending him a number of times since and he is currently working on the third project just on our road! The build was commended by building control which, we think says it all.
