We were building a Scandia-Hus timber frame property and, having had unsatisfactory early quotes from three or four builders, we approached Compass as we knew that two of their Directors had built a house for some friends of ours. Compass’ approach to the work was always very positive and, whenever the inevitable problems or difficulties arose, they immediately looked for solutions and ways to get the project back on track. We were living on site (in a rather cold caravan!) and they went out of their way to make sure we were inconvenienced as little as possible. They were also assiduous in minimising any disruption to the other road users from deliveries etc. A very telling fact was that their sub contractors spoke highly of them saying that they were a good company to work for – always a good sign.

It was a pleasure to work with all the Compass team and their chosen contractors. All the work was of a high standard. Their build schedule happened like clockwork and the work was completed ahead of the plan! I can’t recommend them highly enough.
We were introduced to Compass Construction by some good friends. Because of this we were able to see their work first hand and were very impressed by their level of professionalism, integrity and quality of workmanship before we started.
Compass started our build in April 2015. It involved a two storey wrap around extension, new bathrooms, new kitchen, upgrading of all the plumbing and much of the electrics, new flooring, new windows in the whole house and much more.
The build has been on time (give or take a week) and broadly on budget after allowing for the extra costs that we have instructed during the build. We opted for the Cost Plus option, because it allowed us flexibility during the build. We were able to change things during the project, manage specific areas ourselves and by regularly reviewing the spend, bring the final costs in on budget.
We can’t fault any of the people working on our build who always turned up early, worked hard during the day, were very polite at all times and easy to talk to with nothing being too much trouble. We have been very pleased with our build and the way it has been handled by Compass Construction and would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending.

Compass took care of all aspects of the build from start to finish and minimised the stress for ourselves. We lived in our house all the time the work was ongoing. Compass took care to tidy up each day and showed consideration to our neighbours.
It is very difficult to choose just a few aspects of the new extension that we like the best because the list is long. It includes the excellent matching of bricks and roof tiles, the drive, the new porch, the lighting and heating, the wooden floors, the beautiful bathrooms, the Juliet balcony, the specially built cupboards and our lovely kitchen. We are delighted with the high quality of the workmanship and finish and would not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Compass Construction.

We couldn’t recommend Compass more highly. Richard and the whole team including their subcontractors were professional, honest and a great bunch of guys. They always made an effort to ensure that quality was achieved and remained in our budget throughout the project. They were flexible with our ideas and always communicated well, even finishing ahead of schedule. They are builders that really care about the project and what they are producing and that shows in every aspect. We are so grateful to them for working with us and our architect to achieve the homes we wanted.
