Project Management East Sheen

Your Project In Safe Hands

BW Building Contractors specialises in high-end residential property construction and home renovation projects, as well as small-scale commercial building schemes.

We have gained a great reputation for great customer service and quality workmanship.

What we do?

Our team are all highly experienced project managers. We are proven construction professionals and work directly for residential homeowners and self-builders.

We’ll help ensure your building scheme progresses smoothly whether it’s in London, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Essex, West or East Sussex or Kent.

We also work with architects, interior designers, property developers and clients in the commercial, public sectors.

 
We can expertly manage all the processes required to deliver a successful and compliant construction project from inception through to completion. With decades of in-house construction experience prior to our role as independent construction and project management consultants, we have applied our skills in the residential, light industrial and various commercial sectors.
We’ll help you protect your financial interests – right from the initial pre-construction phase to the completion of your building works. We support your residential or commercial build project with building cost estimating, competitive tendering, contractor appointment, and cost control services.

We can organise building projects of all types and sizes, and we’re happy to assist whether you are living in the UK or based overseas.

We’re here to help you extend your property, convert your loft or create a new basement. Our team can also support you if you are carrying out a refurbishment, or planning major repairs to a period property. If you are building a brand new home, we can oversee the works for you – regardless of whatever modern build method you select to use.

We believe quality dedicated Project Management on any project including new builds, remodelling and refurbishments is vital to the successful completion of your project.

Our aim is to manage your project to ensure that it is completed within budget, on time and to the highest quality. This requires communication to be maintained between all parties from day one consistently to final completion.

We strive to provide you with a dedicated Project Management and QS service that is beyond the service you could expect, allowing the Architect to focus entirely on your design. Having successfully completed our own personal Self Build project and spending 10 years within the Construction Industry, we understand the potential pitfalls and risks associated with your investment.

We want Your Build Project to be enjoyed by You both during the contract and for years beyond.
