After receiving a number of proposals, I hired Built By Blackwell because I was impressed by their attention to detail and creativity. Luke quickly understood our vision for remodeling the downstairs, extending the house and installing a luxury kitchen, and made some excellent suggestions which really improved the whole scheme. From day one the project went smoothly - Luke and his team were very considerate throughout - and we're massively pleased with the result.

Built by Blackwell has provided outstanding advice and guidance on the steps required to plan the renovation of our dream home in Edinburgh. The detail in which Luke goes into and the way he explains the work and order has really added transparency to the whole process. For such a daunting project, we are excited to have Built by Blackwell as a partner! Highly recommended!

A really professional and nice team who care about the quality of their work.
We have worked with Luke on two kitchen and bathroom renovations on very different properties. Exceeded our expectations on each project and we would highly recommend their design and build services.

I'm only too pleased to have this opportunity to recommend Blackwells. We appointed Blackwells to knock through to an adjacent flat, which involved gutting the old flat, installing a new bathroom, renewing electrics, installing wooden flooring and hidden cupboards, redecorating throughout, building new walls, in addition to many other things. The work was high spec throughout, and all work was carried out to a high standard by friendly and considerate workmen.

Of most benefit to us, however, was the design aspect offered by Blackwell. There were a few problems with our initial plans - which were mainly based around the two different levels of the flats - but Blackwells resolved all of these, with good communication, so that our ideas materialised regardless.

I'm happy to recommend Blackwells for any manner of building and design work.

Review Comments
Built by Blackwell renovated our flat situated in Camden, London during the summer of 2017. Overall the experience was highly positive and the product exceeded our expectations.

The experience we had from the outset was excellent, communication from the office team was always prompt, clear and friendly, and they always provided us with a very good range of options to meet our budget. Built by Blackwell project managed everything, including an excavation in the rear of the flat which nearly doubled the apartment's square footage. On top of this, the flat was flawlessly damp proofed. The end product was a high quality finish, which we were really pleased with.

All the tradesmen that worked in the flat were always courteous and polite and Built by Blackwell always went out of their way to make it comfortable and convenient for us. Would highly recommend!

Luke renovated our house completely. The first job was the main bathroom. We then asked him to do the rest of the house and the garden. Overall, we have been happy. The work was done in 2009 and 2010 in London. It is still looking good; we've only had to refresh the paint work. We have had a few minor issues with plumbing and electrics since and, with hindsight, wish we had done some things he advised against at the time (notably installing double glazing), but his advice was not unreasonable under the circumstances and the minor issues are likely par for the course over a 5-10 year timeframe, though a couple of plumbing issues may have been avoided if initially done differently. Overall, he was good to work with and fairly priced.

We used Luke and his team for works on our flat: this involved rewiring all the electrics, knocking down a wall and creating 2 rooms, building a new bathroom, carpentry work (bespoke shelves/ cabinets), new wooden flooring and general plaster work. The project took about 11 weeks. Luke and his team were professional and very competent. They were efficient and understanding of our needs and preferences. Prior to the project we discussed ideas and communications was excellent throughout the process, with regular meetings and updates. We would highly recommend them.

We had our two bed flat renovated by this Company. I have no hesitation in recommending them. The pre-work consultation was very thorough and they were polite, courteous and considerate throughout the Project and talked through every stage as the work progressed. The job was completed on time and within the agreed budget. Also they are completely trustworthy.
