All works are agreed and costed prior to commencement. This leaves no surprises and gives the client a better understanding of the project at any time.

Happy Customers

  • Overall, SDC were excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. I would describe myself as a difficult and demanding client and Lyle and the team met our expectations. For your information, I am a project manager in the construction industry.
    They completed ten days early and got us in for Christmas as promised. We love the house and minor (normal) post completion issues are being dealt with expediently and professionally.
    From a neighbour’s perspective, we live down a tiny lane and at times we had some pretty heavy construction traffic, which was difficult to manage but the site team was always courteous and well-mannered when engaging with the neighbours, and we are still friends with next door!

  • We have now lived in our beautiful home for 5 months and we want you to know how much we love it. You built us a wonderful house and we love every day we are here and feel incredibly lucky.
    We wanted you to know how much we appreciate it and would like you to pass our thanks and comments to all your team who worked on it. They were lovely people and it was a pleasure having them on site. We enjoyed the relationship that we built with you all.
    Please don’t hesitate to bring prospective clients to have a look at it. The garden is coming on well now and this is also exciting.
    Do come back and have a look when you are in the area - we will gladly put the kettle on or pop a cork.
    We hope that your current projects are going well.

  • We would (and have already!) highly recommend Lyle and the team at South Downs Construction. From the outset, they have been nothing but professional and hardworking, and take immense pride in what they do. Lyle totally bought into and understood what it was we were striving to achieve. He not only ‘got it’, but furthermore his experience meant he could diplomatically offer sensible advice and make suggestions to develop our ideas. And he was usually right!
    His constant attention to detail and high standards meant that we did indeed build the extension of our dreams. On time and on budget, and we are loving living in it. The rest of the team have without exception, been a delight to have around – always friendly and considerate – nothing is too much trouble. They are a ‘can do’ team and maintain standards worth paying for.
