CB Design and Build were recommended to us by our trusted architect, Richard Hastings of RJH Architects.

We would have no hesitation in recommending CB & team to anyone looking to execute first class work, with a team of professional, polite, clean and committed contractors, who are always ready to go the "extra mile" whether that be giving advice, alternatives, or above and beyond levels of in-flight and post job support.

For anyone wanting to bring their architectural dream to life, and a project into a home, we would work with Danny, Sean, Mindis and the CB team each and every time.

We continue to be impressed by the professional manner in which they conduct themselves and the quality of their work. We have found the team to be reliable and there is always an open channel of communication with prompt responses. They have a high level of expertise and have always taken the time and care to resolve any unforeseen issues.

We have no hesitation in recommending CB Design and Build for your client's project.

I am happy to recommend CBD & Build, and I do so without hesitation.  Mark, Lee, Sean and the team of contractors deserve top marks. 

  • Timing and Schedule:  we did experience delays, but none of this was within CBD's control (our architect moved country and didn't let us know she was dropping us essentially, COVID kicked off, and our building's approval admin people were very difficult to get in touch with).  Despite these delays, the team is always efficient, professional, polite, friendly, tidy.  They are incredible!
  • Tradesmen:  we met a variety of CBD's tradesmen and usual partners based on the variety of work we did (bathroom, shelving, sky light, roof garden, etc) they are a good team, who work together well, they are polite, tidy every day and get the jobs done.  They're lovely. 
  • Communication:  we created WhatsApp groups for ease of communication and this worked well when we needed to check in on something or confirm an arrival time for the tradesmen the following day. CBD are very professional and conscientious.  
  • Trust:  I trusted Mark's recommendations, his communication and expertise are terrific.  Within a week, we suggested the tradesmen take an extra key to our building and flat, so they could come and go for tea breaks and arrive in the morning with ease.  I trusted all the guys and they gave me no reason whatsoever to question them.

“CB were recommended to us by a good friend who works at Conran Design Partnership. They were recommended because of their can-do attitude, the quality of their work and their residential experience. Once the design was complete they followed up with an itemised and accurate schedule of costs that were transparent and gave the client cost control. The agreed schedules enabled straight forward cost management throughout the project. CB Design & Build pro-actively managed the programme to ensure they met their target dates. They are supported by a team of regular suppliers and subcontractors who are equally invested in ensuring their projects run smoothly. Their Site Managers were immediately interested in the craftsmanship of the final product. This facilitated conversations about the construction details at an early stage of the project and ensured the quality of the end result. We have now worked with CB on four consecutive projects. We have found them consistently helpful, communicative and professional. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to work with Credibuild and would not hesitate to recommend them to other clients and architects”.

Velehrad London

We selected CB from competitive bids for the reconstruction of a new home of our charity “Velehrad London”. In dealing with CB during the duration of the contract we always found a very reasonable and understanding attitude on their side.  We particularly appreciated CB’s professionalism, attention to detail and their friendly “can do” approach and willingness to assist even after the end of the warranty period.

'It is a pleasure working with CB, they combine professionalism with a ‘can do’ attitude that is thoroughly refreshing, and make the construction process an enjoyable experience yet deliver the required result - we would not hesitate in working with them again'

“I’ve worked with CB Design & Build over the past 5 years and have enjoyed each project we have worked on. Having been in the Property Industry for 20 years I have seen my fair share of building companies. I can honestly say they deliver on all accounts. I have found them to be professional and organised at all times. They have showcased their ability to work across all types of properties, commercial and residential, small or large projects. They have a supportive organised team, who always work efficiently. They deliver a high quality finish at a manageable cost. They always consider the client and their costs, which is why I am happy to work with them on each project I have.
They take away the headache of building and the restrictions that can incur. And most of all they deliver an excellent polished build that has durability because of the high quality workmanship they use.
I would highly recommend them!”

Rachel Munro-Peebles, Director



“We have worked with CB for 5 years, on a variety of projects including a high-end residential scheme in Chelsea and a cultural centre in Barnes. We have always found them to be personable, professional and pro-active, and enjoy working with them. They are efficient, knowledgeable, honest and flexible, and they understand that attention to detail and careful planning are critical in delivering a successful built project. We look forward to working with them again, and would certainly recommend them.”

“We were absolutely delighted with our CB engagement. The six month project ran to time and the quality was of the highest order. There was well informed, experienced advice from the outset; work standards were top rate; they were a huge help in sourcing fit out product at competitive rates and the project management was outstanding. I’m very pleased to recommend them and would use Credibuild again”

“I employed CB Design & Build in 2017 to replace the slate roof on a large 4-storey house, to add a dormer extension to enlarge a bedroom and create an en-suite bathroom, and to renovate and repair many aspects of the remainder of the property. In my view there are two aspects to look for when tendering a large project; firstly will the company provide a realistic quote for the given specification and secondly, and perhaps more importantly when dealing with an older London property, will they show ingenuity and fairness of pricing when it comes to dealing with the unexpected surprises that always appear. The CB team ticked both boxes. They have extensive experience in many types of building work and a wide network of useful contacts to draw upon, and my project was completed on time, despite issues due to the age of the building, and at a cost below the original budgeted amount. I would highly recommend them”.

Michael Jones Architects

"We are working with CB on a large private residential project in Richmond. We have found them to be organised, efficient and exceptionally considerate in their working practices. The quality of workmanship has been excellent from them and their subcontractors and the team have worked collaboratively with us to identify efficiencies and deliver the best possible end result for our client. We look forward to opportunities to work with them again in the future."

Richard Woods - Director


Fleet Architects

"Fleet Architects have successfully worked with CB on a number of occasions now. We are sure there will be more. Compared with similar scale contractors they bring a higher degree of professional support and honesty, particularly in estimation and cost control from inception to completion of a scheme. They are cooperative and quick to recognise and take on the core objectives but with the experience and talent to solve problems and keep projects moving along. CB Design & Build draw upon an excellent team of foremen supported by site teams who are skilled, hard-working and respectful."

Jaime Bishop - Partner


Obbard Property Management Ltd

“They’re such a nice company to work with. Very professional but friendly. The site management is top notch and they’re always available to talk through things as needed without any fuss. Finally, they were on time and the finish was good. Great guys to work with”.

State Studio

"CB provide a professional building service that brings depth and breadth of experience and expertise to achieve a consistently high level of construction quality and delivery.

They are a proactive team that are underpinned by honesty and integrity. Further they are competitive within the market and demonstrate clear value for money. Where budgets are tight they work to find excellent, cost saving alternatives, tapping in to a reliable and quality supply chain which they have established over many years.

Our clients have regularly reported to us the positive experience they have had employing CB – this is significant as construction projects of any size, type, or budget are complex and a congruous and trustworthy relationship between all parties is the number one way to achieve the very best outcomes.

CB Design & Build are always at the top of our list of recommendations to our clients and we look forward to continuing to produce projects of distinction with them."
