About Us

Bestwick Builders was started in May 1993, with the aim of providing a First Class Building Service, mainly to the domestic market, for all small to medium sized jobs, with the aim of staying small and trading below the threshold to charge VAT on our labour. We now have 16 years experience of doing exactly that.

Bestwick Builders is a partnership, and we are all committed to provide the best possible Building Service. Nigel Bestwick, Senior Partner brings a B.S.C. (Hons) in Civil Engineering along with over 25 years experience in the Construction Industry, with companies such as Bowmer & Kirkland. We are committed to training our work force and are now putting our fourth apprentice, Aaron Woodward, through the ICA award in Construction.

As a small local Builder, Bestwick Builders specialize in providing a complete building package to both domestic and light commercial clients for all small to medium sized projects, however complicated, to your complete satisfaction. We will project manage these multi-trade jobs, liasing with any specialist sub-contractors required, on your behalf, to ensure the job runs smoothly, giving you absolute peace of mind. The Services section illustrates the full range of work we do.

While we established ourselves, we successfully qualified for membership to:

  • Federation of Master Builders
  • Guild of Master Craftsmen
  • Fair Trades Registered

However, to help keep our turnover below the threshold to have to charge VAT, we now no longer subscribe to any trade organizations, and now rely on 'word-of-mouth' to keep the work coming in.

Structural alterations, along with small to medium sized extensions and loft conversions, form the majority of our work. Complicated and awkward works are our bread and butter!  We have a good working relationship with the Local Building Control Department, who will supervise all relevant works and will be responsible for issuing the Completion Certificate All our work not only comply with the Building Regulations, but are carried out to the highest standards.

Here at Bestwick Builders we can even add a Building Inspector to our list of satisfied customers, having built him a Bungalow overlooking Little Eaton. Please feel free to check out his testimonial, along with all our other satisfied customers.

We provide a polite and flexible service, happy to discuss and accommodate any (reasonable!) amendments as the job progresses; our professional and experienced work force on hand from start to finish.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss whatever project you have mind - our advice is free also!
