We have worked with Knights Building Contractors on a variety of projects over the last 10 years. These include sensitive renovations to listed buildings as well as new build projects. We wanted to work with a local firm of builders and have always found them to be reliable and efficient. Bob and Matthew have a skilled team working with them and they have managed to complete our projects on time, on budget and to a high standard. We have been delighted with the results and therefore we feel we can recommend Knights Builders without any hesitation.
As an interior designer, I often work with manufacturers and contractors and really appreciate the working relationship we built up with Knights. Important things like always returning calls and emails, keeping us informed of deadlines and working closely with us to ensure that we were happy at every stage of the process, made our nine month build an exciting process. We were living on site (which had its moments!) but all the team working on the project were polite and respectful of our space. The project came in just about on time and to budget – which says a lot for Matthew’s estimating and Bob’s scheduling. We have already recommended them on and our thoroughly enjoying our new, enlarged home.
After a lifetime of involvement in building projects my working maxim, when scrutinising a tender submitted by a potential builder, is to double the time allowed and the financial estimate to insure that I will be in the right ballpark!
A major renovation and new build project with Knight Building has restored my faith in the building business. Strawberry Hill House was completed to a high standard; on time and on budget. Just as importantly, an active interest from Bob Knight and Matthew Peck has been maintained since completion.
“Knights” don’t just build houses – they build good working relationships with their clients, insuring a happy experience and a successful outcome for everyone involved.
Our project was divided into three phases and Knights ran each of them. This meant that their trades people and management were around for a little over twelve months. In that time we found them to be extremely professional and genuinely helpful. We are really pleased with our house and delighted with the quality of workmanship and professionalism. Throughout the project Knights were able to come forward with ideas that helped to create the lovely home we enjoy today. We were sorry to see them go!
We enjoyed the process of building our home and are very satisfied with the outcome. This resulted from Bob Knight and his team maintaining a dialog with us and keeping to the agreed schedule for the work finishing on time and on budget.
Our building project went extremely well, coming in at about the same price as quoted and only a few weeks over time, even though Knights had to cope with some bad winter weather and the installation of ground source heat-pump technology which was new to them. All the people on site were delightful to deal with, making for a remarkably good experience.
Knight Builders began work with us in November 2009. All the men on-site were polite and punctual. The project was completed on time and to a very high standard – our home has been transformed and we are very pleased with the result. We would have no hesitation in using Knight Builders again for any future building projects.
We used Knights to turn a derelict Grade-II listed manor house into our family home. It was a huge job. But it is the mark of their workmanship, dedication, and friendliness that we went back to the same firm afterwards to do two more substantial projects.
Bob, Matthew and team were a pleasure to deal with and completed a complicated listed building refurbishment to a very high standard with a minimum of fuss, within the timescale determined and to cost
