Re; Large 250sqm two storey side and rear residential extension
We just wanted to say thank you to you and your lads for the magnificent work done over the last 8 months. The end product is as good as you promised and the journey has been an absolute pleasure – what a team! Having recently moved in to the area there’s been an awful lot on, life’s been hectic to be honest. Chris and his team have done a fantastic job. The process was easy, after talking with Chris in the initial quote stages to agreeing the finishing touches and a few extras.
The communication was good and the hitches and changes (which are inevitable in a building project this size) were all sorted out quickly and very well. The work was done to a very high standard, using skilled tradesmen for each different task. They’re work rate, skill, politeness and enthusiasm was well received. On finishing the project, the attention to detail was very impressive and time was taken to achieve this. The team had a culture of tidiness. This was a big task but we are very pleased that we chose the right company for it. We can undoubtedly recommend this company for your job. As you know, we’ve recommended you to a few friends in the area already and you’ve successfully won the projects (for which we’re very thankful) which is testament to a company that actually cares, not only for the quality of work, but more importantly, for the welfare of the customer.
Hi Chris, just a quick thank you for the work you recently completed on my house.Lisa and myself are very pleased with the work and we have had many compliments on the look and finish of the extension.
It was great we could rely on your team to get on with the work and they gave a friendly service even when we asked for a few changes to the plan. If we ever need anymore work doing I am sure we will be in contact.
We requested a quote for our house extension from Chris Brown and a number of other building firms. The response received from CBBS was by far the most professional, detailed and thorough quote, and clearly set out the various stages of the project and costings involved.
Since the work began, Chris and his team have provided an excellent service, keeping us up to date with developments and communicating consistently. The work has been completed to a very high standard throughout, and we have been particularly impressed by the attitude and friendliness of everyone on the team. The flexibility and can-do attitude is a credit to the firm, and we would not hesitate to recommend CBBS to anyone looking for a professional, well-managed and responsive building company.
I write this letter in recommendation of CBBS Ltd as a building services contractor. In December 2015 I was tasked with developing a factory/office facility that my company had bought. The first phase of the project was to totally redevelop 12,000 Sq. Ft of a 35,000 Sq. Ft building into an office and manufacturing facility. The building had been empty for 7 years and was in a serious condition of disrepair. There were no gas, electrical or water services to the unit and every piece of wiring, pipe work and anything of value had been ripped out. It was basically walls and a leaking roof.
I approached Chris Brown owner of CBBS Ltd to see if he was interested in taking on the project to redevelop the building, to my delight he accepted, I then hit him with the bombshell that we only had a 16 week window to complete the work, Chris’s reaction to this was not to decline the job but to go away and come up with a plan of action to ‘get the job done’. From day one he organised builders, plumber, electrician, carpenters, painter and decorators, he sorted services, drain works, ground works, in fact everything that required attention.
I can honestly say that everyone connected with CBBS Ltd, was courteous, well mannered and skilled and when asked, nothing was too much trouble for them, they are all a credit to their company. The result of the actions taken by his company has enabled us to move into the facility on time and on budget, leading to the absolute minimum of production downtime before we started up as an operating unit again.
I would have no hesitation in recommending CBBS Ltd to anyone who has a project to do big or small. After what they did for my company I do not believe anything is beyond them. I am already looking forward to working with them again on phase 2 of the development.

The work at our property consisted of a 4m x 4.5m single story rear extension. As the build required knocking into the main part of the house, the challenge was to hide the structural beam above the ceiling level so that no boxing was visible and the desired effect of a flushed ceiling was achieved. Chris worked with us to ensure this was accomplished and met our expectations. The result was outstanding and made an enormous difference to the overall effect of the extension.
Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with. His competitive quote, professionalism and patience in dealing with customers with no building experience meant we felt confident in his ability to complete the work to our high standard. When problems arose, he went above and beyond his responsibilities and acted as our agent, liaising with the local planning department and building control. We were very impressed with this service as it meant our stress and anxiety during the building work was kept to a minimum.
Chris employs a team who reliable, trustworthy and friendly. He maintained continuity by ensuring a main contact was on site daily from beginning to end. We appreciated this as it meant the different professionals working on the build were kept to time commitments and work schedules. Although understandably building materials overtook the rear garden, we, as well as our neighbours, noted how tidy they were rand respectful of other people’s property. Once the build was complete, the patio area and drive were jet washed and any broken paving stones replaced.
To conclude, we would have no hesitation recommending Chris Brown Building Services to anyone thinking of embarking on a building project.
After talking to neighbours in our area who we saw had used CBBS as well as researching on the internet we requested a visit from Chris Brown to quote for our requirements. We also requested quotes from two other sources, (one never arrived to quote).
The quotation was detailed and covered everything we wanted line by line and proved to be very competitive whilst still being around what the other contractor quoted. We felt there was a more professional approach to the quote and our queries and decided to proceed with our kitchen modification and Bi-fold window installation.
The timescale was critical as we had a holiday booked and wanted the work completed to suit. CBBS always assured us it was achievable and true to their word provided a plan of each stage of works versus time which they steadfastly adhered to. The individual tradesmen were all very helpful and answered any queries or contacted Chris for us. Overall we have a kitchen/ dining room and Utility room which we are extremely pleased with and the envy of friends and family. We would highly recommend CBBS.
Recently, Chris Brown Building Services completed building an extension to the rear of our home. My wife and i can say, without qualification that the rebuild exceeded our expectations.
Problems when they occurred were dealt with professionally and without fuss. The quality of finish from the men involved is exemplary. Future clients seeking building work need no hesitation in employing your services.
We employed Chris and Steve Brown to build a two storey extension on our home and we are absolutely delighted with the finished extension. It is often very difficult today to find a trustworthy builder, and in our quest we were often let down, even at quotation stage!
Chris and his team exceeded our expectations in terms of standard of workmanship, schedules and respect for our property and belongings. We felt at ease leaving them working in the house, whilst on two holidays, and they had the utmost care when leaving site, to ensure it was clean and tidy. We were updated at all times with any problems regarding the build, and were able to resolve them quickly and without conflict.
We are very pleased to refer anyone to these hard working and conscientious builders, and would like to wish them every success for the future. We are in no doubt that if they maintain such high standards they will be extremely popular.
I have used Chris Brown Building Services Ltd for a number of projects in the last 12 months and on each occasion I have been delighted with the whole process. As with any project there is a vision that needs to be expressed and relayed to any building company and I have found Chris to be very knowledgeable and attentive when our initial meetings take place. Chris then takes these ideas and turns them into reality. If there are a few subtle changes that are required along the way Chris and his team are very flexible and approachable and nothing seems too much trouble.
Chris presented me with a timeline for a recent project (Mezzanine and Production floor extension) which was exactly as discussed and the project was completed ahead of schedule without compromising on quality, just what I require when planning and estimating my own production schedule.
Lastly, Chris is a perfectionist. His personal quality control walkaround at the end of each project day to me is the main reason why I will not use anyone else. His team will only move on to the next stage of the project when Chris is satisfied that the quality meets or exceeds the agreed standard.
