Insurance & Accreditations

Our company and the partners we work with are fully certified to ensure our clients not only receive the best service, but can rest assured all legalities are covered.

The construction industry forms one of the UK’s largest employment sectors made up of wide and diverse groups of highly skilled professional companies, all of whom have a legal requirement to adhere to stringent health & safety policies, in addition to the many professional bodies requiring ‘continued professional development’ (CPD) guarantees and extensive insurance bonds.

Compass Construction seamlessly removes the time and hassle of processes for clients, ensuring that the service offering is ‘par excellence’ by working with reliable and certified partners to ensure development programmes run smoothly and projects are delivered above and beyond expectations.

Specification & Layouts

Recognising that not everyone has the time capacity to visualise a finished product, we offer clients the opportunity to work with our team to source and finalise specification choices.

Having professional guidance when selecting a finished specification can be invaluable in helping to source new, innovative and project-appropriate products that aren’t always available on the high-street. Specification choices are very often the point at which a project can run into overtime. Compass Construction’s specifications service ensures a continuity of time and budget management and extends to a review of proposed internal layouts to ensure items such as plugs, cat 5 wiring, sockets, heating controls and other elements are correctly positioned and suit the use of the spaces being built.

Please note this service is only available for clients of Compass Construction and will be quoted for separately and subject to the scope of works.


We are passionate about the environment and seek to produce energy efficient, sustainable solutions for all our building projects.

We aim to adopt construction methods that take into consideration the use of renewable resources and, wherever possible, locally sourced and recycled materials.

To date Compass Construction has installed a variety of renewable eco solutions into builds, including Rainwater Recycling, Photovoltaic Panels, Solar Panels, Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps. We understand renewable energy sources and can recommend tried and tested systems that match your builds budget.


West Byfleet

When embarking on building our own home journey we knew we needed a professional and highly regarded main contractor.

From the first spade in the ground to the last touch of paint work, Compass were with us all the way.

St Anns

We heard about Compass Construction as they had recently completed a couple of new build houses in our road. They looked good and we managed to take a look round them so we knew the high quality Compass produced. They were also recommended to us by a neighbour as a good company to work with.

The Hus

We chose Compass out of four bidders to build our new contemporary home. The quotes were similar but we chose them because we could tell we would get on well with Steve and Richard, the owners.

King Georges Cottage

They are excellent with a very professional but easy to get on with attitude and an eye for detail and quality. We did an almost full knockdown then rebuild of a brick and stone house in the heart of the Surrey Hills and they did a beautiful job; on time, on budget and not one argument or problem that was not immediately sorted.
