James has recently completed a large loft conversion for our 70 year old Bungalow, with a beautiful gable end and larch cladding/balcony. We were incredibly happy with the work of James and his colleagues, completing a build, during a pandemic , on a small bungalow (which for a large proportion of the build, housed 2 home schooling children and parents working from home) was no mean feat. All the team on site were efficient and polite and we were always kept up to date about progress and knew what was happening in the week ahead. James managed to solve a problem created by our architect quickly and successfully, without affecting the build itself. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend APD to any of our friends and family and will contact James in the future for any further projects we may undertake. - Jenny and Dan Wallace

James and his team worked hard through three winter storms and the Covid-19 pandemic to deliver two extensions and a loft conversion exactly on budget with only a very slight delay (and given the circumstances who can complain about that?) The standard of work was high and there was nothing to fix after completion. Given the substantial amount of work that we had done and the timing of it (over lockdown), we are eternally grateful and pleased that we chose APDCI and James to do our work. Everything he said he'd do, he did. Very professional, courteous and reliable. I'd recommend him anytime. Thanks a lot James. We really appreciate it. - Peter

APD worked on a 2 storey side extension on our last property. It was our first experience working with APD. They delivered the extension to the agreed timescale & on budget. They left the site clean, tidy & safe each night which was important as we had 2 small boys. They even gave the boys a go in the digger! James managed the project from start to finish, getting trades on site a couple of weeks in advance to finalise materials, manage building control etc. The project ran very smoothly & we didn’t need to worry about co-ordinating trades as James did it for us. Overall we were delighted with the standard of the build & the service we received. So much so, that we are have James & his team briefed to start our next renovation project. - Claire

Ultimately James wanted to achieve what we wanted to achieve. He was happy to listen carefully to our needs/requirements and to suggest approaches/solutions. We felt he kept us informed at every stage and was excellent at organising and dovetailing different services. James was able to successfully problem solve when one historical issue arose with our house. James’s organisational skills meant he kept the project moving forward. He ensured that all was left clean and secure at the end of each day and he advised us what was to happen the next day and the timings involved. We were delighted with the end result.

Our experience with APD construction was first class. This was the first time we had major work done to our house and James helped us every step of the way, we would couldn’t recommend APD more highly. Their attention to detail from start to finish was brilliant. From the quote, all the way through to the finishing stages, we were kept informed and up to date with any challenges and progress. APD were incredibly considerate builders as we have two young children and they would even try and time drilling so they didn’t interrupt our baby’s nap time! Each evening they tidied away everything so as not to disrupt our family life any more than could be helped. If we need any work doing in the future on our house, we couldn’t consider anyone other than James and APD Construction & Improvements Ltd. - Anita
