What others say about us.

My living space

My living space just wasn’t big enough for me, and the children, and my friends when I entertained.

Cove Construction were great at taking the design I had and making me think of different aspects to make it perfect for my needs, re-worked the design and sorted out the planning and building regulation side. The friendly and expert team then built exactly what we had talked about, so I ended up with a great value modern spacious building; perfect for living in and entertaining. I would be happy to use Cove Construction again for future work and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

On moving to Cornwall

On moving to Cornwall we wanted to create two workshops by adding to the end of an existing garage. In addition we wanted to incorporate a toilet and shower so that the new room could be used as accommodation from time to time.

The project was overseen by Kelvin and mainly undertaken by Paul, his son-in-law. Who both sought to understand at the outset, exactly what we were trying to achieve and incorporated features suggested by all three of us.

A bonus was that digging the hole for a septic tank and runoff unexpectedly produced a large amount of stone which was used to landscape the ground around the new building.

The resulting building is very pleasing.

Kelvin worked with us over 2 years as we renovated our Grade 2 listed building. He was very understanding of our particular requirements, the local planning / regulations and our wishes for the project pace, and in doing so project managed the renovation excellently, without fault, and on budget.

However it was his skills as a craftsman that really differentiated the final product for us. His attention to detail, his un-willingness to accept an inferior solution, and his ability to guide the design based on his capabilities to deliver the project really sets him apart from an average designer / contractor.
