I would just like to post a recommendation for Dulwich Construction who have been working in our house for the past three weeks. Simon and Paul have been polite, courteous, punctual and extremely professional whilst completing a lot of work on the house. Mr P and I come from architect/design backgrounds so have sometimes annoyingly high expectations of finishes etc. but Dulwich Construction ensured everything was completed to the highest possible standard achievable.
They were always happy to discuss a variety of options to ensure we got the end result we wanted and they gave the impression nothing was too much trouble. Having had a bad experience using another local building firm last year it was really nice to be dealt with in such a professional but friendly manner. The price was very competitive too.

I can highly recommend Dulwich Construction. We had them carry out some work in our property and were extremely pleased with the final result. When the ‘search’ function on the forum is working again, you’ll be able to find their number…

We’ve just had some work done by Dulwich Construction that we’ve been very happy with. Timely, tidy, competitive, quick to respond to questions and get quotes prepared etc….

I can happily recommend Dulwich Construction. The contact there is Simon (07704 184897).
Simon and Paul recently did some structural work on our kitchen and we were really pleased with them. They provided a professional, competitive quote (with proper breakdown for entire project). They turned up on time, were tidy, and in general very helpful and good to work with. They can recommend a structural engineer too and deal with decoration, flooring, etc.
A great service all in all.

Just wanted to add to the numerous recommendations on here for Dulwich Construction. In fact, I chose them based on what was said about them on the forum. They have recently completed two jobs for us. We are very happy with their work and their general approach.

I just wanted to write a recommendation for the building company, Dulwich Construction, whom I recently commissioned to make a major reconstruction of my kitchen. My house, a Victorian terrace, had a small kitchen with an entrance door into a rather pokey utility and toilet, with rising damp. Dulwich Construction removed the wall separating the two rooms, installed French doors, closed the original doorway to the outside and replaced it with a larger window, opened up the ceiling and fitted a very large Velux skylight, damp-proofed the walls, plastered everything, tiled the floor and installed a new kitchen. I requested quotes from four companies and chose Dulwich Construction because Simon and Paul were the most proactive in making suggestions to best realise my ideas for the new kitchen. Their price was also very competitive.
The original project included replacing the solid concrete flooring in the kitchen, investigation as the work progressed revealed that the floor was actually sound, subsequently Simon and Paul very reasonably reduced the price of the project to reflect changed workload. Additionally, during the project, we discovered my upstairs shower was leaking badly through the walls. Even though this problem was unrelated to the kitchen, Paul advised and helped me to renew the shower and Simon drove me to the bathroom merchant to buy the materials and got me a trade discount!
Overall they were very helpful and worked hard to achieve a brilliant standard of finish. Paul, Simon and Andy were prompt, professional and very personable, making what could have been a very difficult experience (my partner and I lived on site during the disruption) actually stress-free and fun.
I recommend them very highly.

I would like to second this recommendation for Dulwich Construction. We also chose them based on the ED forum, and they did an absolutely fantastic job on our kitchen.

We found him/them constantly punctual, pleasant, helpful, patient and good humoured throughout all the vicissitudes of pool creation. In our case this involved some 11 skip loads of earth/clay dug in large part by hand (and part by a small mechanical digger) and carried in wheelbarrows through the house.
We had a large cabin (28ft by 16ft) constructed at the bottom of the garden to accommodate not only the pool but also a fitness suite. Between them they covered all the angles as to design, construction, materials, paintwork, consequential garden landscaping and helped with planning permission issues.
They also cleared up each day and managed to keep the house as clean and clear as could be expected throughout the works. They consulted us at each step and discussed budget changes with us. They gave it their personal attention and Simon was there every day of the project over two months. He supplied diagrams and elevations on screen.

We were very pleased by the work carried out by Dulwich Construction. The team had to work through the worst of the winter, dealing with sticky clay and having to drain out the hole that had been dug on an almost daily basis.
A 22′ x 14′ cabin was constructed and a 16′ x 9′ Endless Pool with a custom deep area installed partly in-ground. The work was carried out to a high professional standard and it was great that all aspects of the build and installation could be handled by the team. Simon has been very responsive regarding any subsequent questions on care or use of the pool.
Mike S., Surrey, UK, July 8, 2015
We were very happy with the work carried out by Dulwich Construction. It was a pleasure to work with them and we found them extremely helpful and willing to provide useful advice as the job progressed.
They took care to protect the surrounding garden as they worked and on completion left the site in a clean and tidy condition. The quality of workmanship was very high and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others who are considering an Endless Pool installation or indeed any other building work.
