Affordable building projects completed a load bearing wall / living room dining room wall knock through for me. The work was completed quickly and affordable building projects dealt with the structural engineer and building regulations for me, one less job for me to do. Would recommend! - Jimmy

Kirk and the team were really efficient and tidy and installed our steels so neatly that they can be left exposed within our kitchen area. They openly explained the process to us as the works were going ahead and even came up with simpler solutions to what we had planned where they could. They cleared the site after removing the load bearing walls and pouring new foundations and took care to protect the rest of the property the whole time they were working. Could not recommend them more. - Sian

Not only the structural work that Kevin, Steve have done on the house was of high standard, but was also great to have them around. We had few bumps on the way with our plans, due to these being quite ambitious and the house being an old terraced house (found few quirks here and there), but Kirk and his team have been super helpful at any step of the way, allowing us to end up exactly with what we planned (which was not to take for granted). They were great at coming up with solutions on the way, and it really felt they took part on our project from the beginning. We would definitely recommend them. - Big open space in old Victorian house

Affordable Building Projects Work description: Structural Beam Replacement in Load Bearing Wall between the kitchen and the back room. Kirk Smith from Affordable Building Projects came out to quote for the job and I have to say I was confident, I wanted them to do the job by the time he left. Kirk, quoted for the whole job including all fees for the Structural Engineer and the Local Council Building Regulations. They did the job within 2 days and the following day after it was finished, the Council Passed the Job. I really cannot recommend Affordable Building Projects enough, from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Chris - Christopher Diamond

Had a structural beam replacement in a load bearing wall completed by ABP. From first contact to completion I found Kirk to be professional in all aspects of communication, very knowledgeable and reassuring. On installation day Kevin and Steve were punctual, hard working, clean tidy, polite and respectful of my home. I'm more than pleased with the work carried out by ABP, would highly recommend and definitely use again. Kirk, Kevin, Steve, thank you. - Annie O'shaughnessy

04 Mar 2022

A very efficient service all round. We had some structural cracks in the brickwork on the house. I am always apprehensive when it comes to builders, but from the initial visit through to completion Kirk and the team kept me informed of what work was required and how it was to be done. It may have been a small job to them but a big job to me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Abp to all who need a friendly and prompt service. - Paul


29 Jan 2022

We had two walls removed and steels put up in our house and we are so happy with the work carried out by the lads at ABP. From initial quoting right through to completion they have been helpful and professional. They handled everything from structural engineering calcs to building control certification. And most importantly the quality of the work is amazing. Can't recommend them highly enough! - Ste B

Kirk and the team were brilliant. Offered loads of options and and did a fantastic job. - Matt


22 Dec 2021

I messaged Kirk at AFB with a structural issue with a removed chimney breast that had been flagged during my building survey. Kirk responded quickly and Kevin came out to assess the issue and measure up. The whole job was done within a week with building regs all being sorted by ABP. Kirk gave a fair price and even amended it lower as the job changed slightly. Would deffo recommend and use again. - L Badley


07 Nov 2021

ABP (Kirk, Kev & Ste) did a great job on my construction project. From doing the work itself to a high standard, raising queries to the structural engineer to being considerate to my neighbours (work undertaken in an apartment), the team conducted themselves professionally and worked hard to overcome unforseen obstacles thrown up by the property being old and resistant to change. Very happy with the immediate results. - Hamish


05 Nov 2021

I really can’t rate ABP highly enough! The company were outstanding on every level and I’m so glad I chose them to do my lounge/kitchen/hall knock- through to create an open-plan space at my house. From the initial contact with them through to completion of the project they were absolutely exceptional. The preliminary consultation was thorough, informative and inspired confidence and their responses to queries/communication throughout were always prompt and helpful. Their quotation was detailed, concise and offered a very competitive price. The actual work was executed very professionally, skilfully and quickly with minimum disruption by the very pleasant and friendly team who also left the place very tidy upon completion. The standard of work, value for money and general approach and professionalism were all faultless. I would definitely use ABP again for future projects and would certainly recommend them to anyone looking to have structural work done. - Joseph, Liverpool


22 Oct 2021

The work to open up the chimney was carried out professionally and with care. When a problem arose with plans which had been provided by a third party the builders identified the problem and agreed revisions to ensure the work was completed safely and to a revised specification. This action showed both their knowledge and skills and commitment to ensure the job was done correctly and to an high standard. I would not hesitate to use this company again and am happy to recommend them. - David Read


15 Oct 2021

I called Kirk for a quote for wall to be removed. He was very professional, excellent customer care, kind, and his team respected my property, as they cleaned and removed all material and rubbish after work. I highly recommend Kirk and his team, and I will definitely use them again. Thank you Kirk! - Sheila

We have had a lintel replaced above a downstairs window by ABP. We contacted Affordable Building Projects knowing they were based in Liverpool and expecting an unable to do response. What a pleasant surprise Kirk contacted us immediately and within a couple of hours the contract for the work was placed. No mention of current difficulties or that we were in South Manchester. Kirk informed us that Kevin would undertake the work. On the arranged day Kevin arrived with Steve and replaced the lintel. From start to finish an excellent service from friendly pratical people. A sincere thank you to all and will certainly recommend you. - Dave


12 Aug 2021

Recently had lintel work done. We can Highly recommend Affordable Building Projects, Kirk was happy to come out to view the work in person, most other builders wanted pictures on-line. We got honest, clear advice & a full quotation for the work, which reflected Affordable Building Project's name. The team were reliable, friendly and the work completed to a very high standard. Efficient and clean, all debris cleared. Would certainly use this service in the future and have recommended to friends and family. - Joan Pascoe

Excellent service! All works carried out quickly and most of all tidy. Will use again!! - Rachel M


06 Jul 2021

ABP removed our downstairs chimney breast. Also, our lounge extension had wall supports plus a beam along the ceiling which made it look like it was separated from the main room. The company removed these and put the appropriate supports for the back wall of the house above in the walls and ceiling so we now have a real, spacious through lounge. From start to finish the job was done very professionally and efficient: initial site visit, detailed estimate, visit by the structural surveyor so he could do his drawings and calculations to submit to Building Control, visit by the foreman before starting the actual job. The work was carried out and finished to a high standard while we were being kept well informed. They were very tidy, cleaning up at the end of each day. We are very pleased with everything and have already recommended them to friends. - Affordable Building Projects


14 Jun 2021

Really impressed with these guys. Straight talking, practical, really nice. Kirk who came round to see the the chimney stack and loft was great, clearly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Kevin and Steve who took the chimney out were efficient, friendly and worked really cleanly. Frank and Michael who came to install the RSJ were also great. All involved did a solid job. They are all experienced and practical people. No problems whatsoever, the result was fantastic. I would recommend them all without hesitation. Well done and thanks, gents! - R Sandhu


10 Jun 2021

Kirk and his team were 100% reliable, punctual and carried out the work leaving the job clean and tidy after each day. Kirk arranged the Building Reg visit to get the work signed off. Highly recommend and would definitely use again in the future! Thanks for a great job - Sally

What can I say, an absolute outstanding performance by ABP. Came on time each day and performand 5 star quality. Made the whole experience very relaxing you just knew you where in safe hands. From the management to the the lads on site the whole process was very stress free. Can't wait to work with these builders again. A 5 star experience and would highly recommend. - Gerard


12 May 2021

Affordable Building Projects did my wall knock through between the living rooms and I have to say the whole process was professional and pain-free. Kirk got back to me following my quote request and organised a convenient time to come out and quote. He was punctual and explained everything clearly (I am a complete novice to all building works). The price was very fair and so I booked in promptly. Kevin and Steve did the works on the day; they were professional, knowledgeable and cleaned up after the job was done. AFB sorted everything from the council inspection, the skip hire, the steel frame works, and Kirk was always on hand via text or email to answer all my questions. I wholly recommend Affordable Building Projects for all your building/structural work. I was a little apprehensive when setting out on my project - having heard horror stories about cowboy builders. You can definitely trust Affordable Building Projects to get all your jobs done to a high standard. - Zohra


05 May 2021

Affordable building projects were great from start to finish. The communication and advice was excellent, making sure the worm carried out was going to be structurally sound - Great work and reliable company


27 Apr 2021

We had a load bearing wall knock through, 2 fire places opened to the original lintel and a bricked in 1930's Yorkist oven removed to open up the chimney to its original lintel. The communication with the team was speedy and didn't require any chasing from us, making the project really easy to coordinate with our other work. The job was done in 2 days and the lads checked the progress with me throughout to ensure I was happy and that there was no miscommunication. Building inspection and skips were smoothy organised and team ensured they were tidy throughout the job. Care was also taken not to damage original victorian features. The lads on the job worked hard, so much so that I didn't even notice if they stopped for lunch! - @manc_reno


24 Apr 2021

I am very satisfied with by the structural building work the Affordable Building Projects team carried out. I booked a visit online, Kirk arrived on the day and time agreed, I found it very easy to discuss the project with him and agree the scope. Later that same day he sent me a written and detailed quote. After confirming that I wanted them to go ahead Kirk came back to take precise measurements and once I paid the 25% deposit within a week Kevin and Steve came to do the work. They were competent and clearly committed to do a good job. So yes I am glad to have entrusted ABP with my work and will call on them again. - Dom Barriac


21 Apr 2021

I engaged Affordable Building Projects to carry out a very tricky structural alteration Barn Conversion Project in Prescot Lancashire which will be my future home. The job involved the threading of a 3.6m long structural steel beam through internal multiple rooms and the cutting out of the internal 'skin' of an existing 9" wall to conserve and support the external sandstone lintels on the 'toe' of the beam. There were two other 3.1m long UBs to fit in very tight internal spaces. I have been involved as a QS in the execution of hundreds of commercial construction contracts over the last 30 years and am aware of the technical difficulty and skill required for this particularly difficult type of work. I must compliment Kirk Smith and Kevin with his lads on a superb job to a first class finish, the Architect and Structural Engineer are similarly impressed as is the Building Inspector. The quoted price was competitive and the the execution was faultless. 100% recommended. - David Ball BSc LLM FRICS FCIArb

Kirk and his team were professional, efficient and provided an excellent service from first phone call to job completion. I am so grateful of his workmanship and extensive knowledge. Thank you. - Laura


07 Apr 2021

I would recommend Affordable Building Projects of Liverpool. They were quick to respond to my enquiry and completed the structural work an installation of a structural support on a redundant chimney breast in my house in good time. They also took care of the Building Regulations application for me and arranged for the inspection at the conclusion of the work. Many thanks to Kirk, Kevin and the team for a job well done. - Phil C of Formby

Everyone I spoke to was friendly and professional. They helped advise on the work and got it done quickly at an affordable price. Would use again. - Sam C


24 Mar 2021

I found it really difficult making progress with some structural work that I needed doing in my house until I came across Affordable Building Projects. The team were very refreshingly reliable - always arrived at agreed times and kept me really well updated throughout process. Quick to give a detailed quote which was very reasonable compared with others. Delighted with the work done, area left clean and tidy. Very professional service. Really grateful to Kirk and the team for their help and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. - Hannah


17 Mar 2021

From first to last contact with ABP I have been impressed. From Kirk's quote to Kev and Steven's onsite work - all has been professional, reliable, and customer oriented! Everything was explained in layman's terms, communication was good, they did what they said they would do - and more. They also did it when they said they would do it. Friendly, approachable, clean, tidy and no surprises - and that extended to the final invoice too!. Minor snagging was handled swiftly and professionally too. I was impressed and pleasantly surprised at how easy the team made everything for me, minimising the not inconsiderable upheaval - all I can say is thank you very much guys, and I will have no hesitation in using your services again, and indeed recommending you to others. - Lorraine

Affordable Building Projects did the conversion of our integral garage into a new family room + a utility room extension, and did a brilliant job fitting the new floor, insulating the walls and providing power and light sockets, extending the central heating into the new space, installing double-glazed windows/door, and fitting very nice vinyl tiling in the utility extension. They also created a new base for our tall fridge and moved it into in the kitchen, and replaced various kitchen units, and fitted the attic with mesh under the eaves to keep wildlife out. The whole project was done quickly and competently, the team was friendly, a formal completion certificate was provided, and the overall price was very reasonable indeed. I would certainly recommend this firm and use them again - in fact we have already used them again for building work in our back garden, and plan to do so again. Highly recommended! - John MIller


13 Mar 2021

Everything you could wish for from a building company. Kirk was quick to arrange a visit, provide a quote and answer any concerns we had before deciding to go ahead. Kevin and the team were efficient, kept us involved of any issues and were quick to alter plans when needed without fuss. Hard working guys with attention to detail, work finished to a high standard and everything left tidy when the job was finished. I would recommend this company for all aspects of building work and look forward to using them for future projects. - Kim & Russ

Kirk was quick to respond to my initial enquiry and his site visit was professional, friendly and authoritative. The team's work on site was similarly efficient and thorough. Everything was explained to me clearly and I never felt bamboozled by technical language. The job was completed over two days and the site was left clean and tidy. The invoice was sent to me later that day, it contained very clear detail of what the job was and what I was paying for. The price was very reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending Kirk and his team. - Dave Wibberley - Dave Wibberley

Structural crack ties fitted. Whilst this was only a small job with which I am happy, as equally important to me is effective, prompt communication and reliability which was excellent. From initial enquiry to completion of the work, took three working days. It is so refreshing to deal with a company who actually do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it. I would definitely use this company again. LC - Affordable building projects

We contacted as their website stated that they were able to do both damp proofing and structural work to make our living room and dining room an all through room. From initial contact, communication from the company was great and all emails/texts were always responded to quickly. They were flexible and were able to add on a few additional requirements from us as the work was done. We are very pleased with the end result and would use again. - Kate


06 Mar 2019

Kirk and his team took on a job for us a few months ago. Kirk provided a detailed quote and also took the time to explain the works programme to me even before confirming the works to go ahead. The works were carried out in a timely manor and were of a high standard. Kirk remained in contact post completion of the work. Kirk ticked every box throughout the process. - AB


14 Aug 2018

My brick wall was badly "bellying out" above two windows at the side of my house. Kirk came to assess the work and assured me that removal of offending brickwork and replacing lintels would solve the problem, and the work would take about 2-3 days. His team, Kev and Steve arrived on time at the arranged dates and were very hard working and also very polite and helpful if I needed to ask any questions. When the work was finished, they left the area in which they had worked in an exceptionally clean state. I hope the work will prove to be successful, but as far as I can see, it looks good. I would recommend Kirk, Kev and Steve to anyone who has a brickwork structural problem. Linda, Liverpool - Linda

"I contacted Kirk after finding his details on the Federation of Master builders website. From the start Kirk was really professional and very knowledgeable. I felt confident that the work would be carried out to a high standard. Kirk made the process easy and was very efficient. I received the quote and all paperwork when promised. Everything was carried out within the agreed times scales to an excellent standard. All of the staff were professional, very helpful and they ensured everything was cleaned up at the end of each day so we had as little disruption as possible. I would highly recommend Kirk and we will will definitely be using him again" - Angela

“If you’re looking for a team of builders who competent, professional and courteous then look no further. I was skeptical at first with getting builders in after hearing all the horror stories about cowboys etc. I had few local firms around to give me quotes on a wall knock-through, a damp proof course and floor laying and none of them filled me with any confidence. I then had Kirk around to give me a quote and I received a full detailed quote , breaking down what work would be carried out, fully costed with VAT. Also offered kind advice on the options I was considering with the work. I agreed and Kirk and the team arrived exactly when they said they would (in fact 15 minutes early!). Totally professional and I left them to get on with the job. They finished on time (not like some other firms who will turn up in fits and spurts, disappear and complete jobs whenever they can be bothered). They were also very accommodating with last minute adjustments to the job spec without any issues or delays, adjustments which I myself made mid-way through the job. The best part is the actual the quality of the work. All the plaster was finished to a very high standard and the flooring was just as impressive. The wall knock-through and steel support beam was fitted to local Council building regulations and they tidied up and left the whole place clean and tidy when they finished. Its almost like they were never here! If you want a professional, courteous and friendly team with all the skills and expertise then look no further, I’ll be using them again when I come to replacing my knackered roof!” - Mike
