Welcome to Red Star Projects.

We are an all trades building contractor specialising in bespoke new builds, renovations, conversions and commercial work throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians.

As a proud member of the FMB, Red Star Projects prides itself in creating and delivering the highest quality bespoke finishes and workmanship possible to all clients. We are a family owned and run business with over 20 years’ experience in renovation, conversion, bespoke new builds and project management, with a strong and proven track record. 

Specialising in bespoke projects requires a high level of attention to detail in every area. This approach allows delivery of exceptional levels of workmanship and customer service for clients, most of whom come to us via recommendation. We are just as at home constructing a bespoke extension for a client as being on a total top to toe renovation project.  We work alongside award winning architects, designers and developers to ensure a top quality high-end finish. 

Whether your project is domestic or commercial, new or old, big or small, please get in touch to discuss how we can deliver you the best quality bespoke workmanship and finishes.

Redstar Projects did a fantastic job for us, creating a beautiful, open-plan, light-filled space in our home. They were a real pleasure to work with, at all levels of the company. The site was always tidy and well-organised and the project was delivered on time and on budget. We're thrilled with the result and I cannot recommend Redstar Projects highly enough. - Mariota

Red Star Renovation completed the total renovation of our Georgian New Town home in September 2018. This was an extensive project of our ground and lower ground apartment which hadn’t been modified in any way since the late 1950’s and had stood empty for a couple of years! Not only was this an exciting and full on renovation it was an interior designer’s dream, which we embraced fully … from 6000 miles away in Hong Kong where we had been living for the last twenty years. Dan and his team quickly earned our total trust with their ability to turn our personal ideas and designs into reality for our retirement forever home. We simply cannot speak highly enough of Dan and his tradesmen whom we found to be conscientious, cheerful, highly professional and with an attention to detail and flexible ‘can do’ attitude rarely found in the building trade these days! A project of this size and nature cannot be without surprises. However, when they did arise, they were dealt with speedily by an immediate phone call, What’s App message and a photo from Dan which enabled us all to discuss, decide and then carry on! We would not hesitate to recommend or use Red Star Renovation for any future projects. - R

Red Star provided a very professional and conscientious service for our recent renovation. Daniel had strategic oversight of an impressive array of skilled trades: liaising with suppliers, trades, architects and ensuring as smooth a process as possible. We were delighted with the end result when we could finally enjoy all their hard work in our fabulous refreshed home. - K

We have worked with Daniel on a number of projects involving the conversion or alterations to Listed and historic buildings. A recent project includes the conversion of an A-listed townhouse in Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town into 5 luxury apartments. This townhouse included the sensitive refurbishment and preservation of the existing features alongside the insertion of new alterations to create these contemporary and luxurious apartments. Daniel follows the drawing packages and our instructions diligently and intelligently, communicating to his team the high standards that are expected and consistently provided. He keeps the lines of communication open at all times between all parties, resolving any issues that arise quickly and professionally. He deals effectively with all challenges thrown at him and we would have no hesitation in working with him again and would highly recommend him and his team. - L

We worked with Daniel on the conversion of two existing Grade B listed townhouses from a single office to 9no flats. From the beginning it was evident that Daniel understood and appreciated our design and was eager to ensure that it was realised without compromise. He effectively communicated the design principles to his team on site which ensured that all were aware of the required level of attention and execution. His ability to foresee and be proactive in resolving problems that might affect either the design or the programme was invaluable. Daniel’s excellent attention to detail is clearly evident in all nine completed flats and we would be keen to work with him in future projects. - E
