Structural Alterations & Kitchen Refurbishments


I employed 5KC to demolish a supporting internal wall and fit a new kitchen. I was impressed by the professionalism and straightforward approach of Kirk Smith who talked me through the job and how it would be done. His estimate proved accurate and a couple of unforeseen problems were dealt with without fuss. The people who did the work were pleasant and we got on well with them, they went the extra mile to get things just as we wanted. We are delighted with the finished result, and would recommend them without hesitation, and will use them again if we need any more building work done.

"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"

Refurbishment & Remedial Works


Date: 08th Aug 2016 Dear Kirk, We have been so pleased with the works that your company 5KC have undertaken on our behalf over the past 18 months that we just had to write and tell you. Your company has undertaken various works for us now and we have been delighted not only with the finished works but with the different professional team members who have worked at our home, especially Kevin, Steve, Danny, Ian and Mark who have been courteous throughout, arrive on time (sometimes 15 mins earlier), stay on the job not disappearing like other builders we have used in the past, have kept things tidy, cleaned up when finished and have accommodated changes to works when we have changed our minds. Your own attention to detail and project management of the works has been excellent, we originally obtained 3 quotes for the works we needed doing over the time period and your company have carried out works that others chose to overprice as they obviously did not want the works , they perhaps deemed the job of tanking the downstairs toilet and utility room too small. They obviously did not see the bigger picture as to where this may lead with other maintenance works at our home. damp proofing, plastering walls, roofing and the recent K rend of the rear house wall and shared party wall now looks amazing. We are so delighted with the quality of the works that are truly value for money that we now will not ask anyone else to maintain our home on our behalf, and we have no doubt that we will see you and your team again in the near future. If you are looking for builders whether for home or commercial you could not do better than to use this company. All our best wishes to you and your team.

Structural Alterations & Refurbishments


“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!”



“5KC are a professional building firm with integrity. Kirk, the owner, came to give me an estimate. He was honest, upfront and informed me that our garage roof was probably asbestos, which no other builder mentioned when quoting. An asbestos firm confirmed this and removed the roof safely. Kirk was very knowledgeable and clearly cared about the field of work he was in and his company. 5KC weren’t the cheapest quote, but it was worth hiring them because now, I have found a building firm that do a great job, quickly and professionally and more importantly, one I can trust. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone”

Structural Alterations for Open Plan Living Space


5KC Builders were very impressive from the outset. When Kirk first came to look at the job he instilled a complete sense of confidence in me and I felt reassured that he and his team were both professional and knowledgeable. Kirk and his team completed the job in the time predicted and we are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen. We would highly recommend 5KC”

Kitchen Extension


We chose 5Kc to cost, design and extend our kitchen area. They are efficient, reliable, clean and work to time. Plans were clear, costs identified and explained and options discussed. They oversaw and/or carried out all aspects of every stage of the work and we could not have been happier. The result has been a successful transformation of the kitchen area to increase space available and to make better use of space. Highly recommended.

Single Storey Extension


5KC completed a project for us in the Summer and Autumn of 2014. This involved gutting an existing kitchen, knocking through an outside wall to a new construction extension, and the complete fitting out of a new kitchen, utility and shower rooms, together with adjacent rebuilding of a garage with a new roof. 5KC's director Kirk Smith supervised the project closely, being on site very regularly. His team of in-house and sub-contracted artisans were without exception friendly and produced high quality work, resulting in a wonderful (and much admired by others) expanded facility at our property. Whilst we may have just a few reservations about the quality of some individual items installed in the kitchen (supplied by a kitchen manufacturer, including bi-fold doors specified by us), the shower room and guttering, these are minor compared with our enormous satisfaction with the improvement to our property and our lives which the completed project has afforded us. We have recommended 5KC to several people as a result, in the knowledge that they can expect work of the highest standard.

Case Studies

Double Storey & Single Storey Extension


Here we have a double storey and single storey extension carried out by 5KC LIMITED as main contractor. We took an old building in need of complete refurbishment and totally transformed it into a large spacious and grand looking property.

It is far more cost effective to extend on to your existing house these days and 5KC can carry out all extension and refurbishment works.

Works to this building included a double storey extension to the side and a single storey wrap around extension to side and rear. We took care into preserving the existing character of the building and even built new bay windows to the front elevation of the new extension to ensure it matched the original windows to the main house that were left as they were.

The existing property was completely gutted and we even restored the original period cornicing to the property that had been lost over the years. The property was finished with a new kitchen, bathroom, garage and offices and also the driveway to the front finished in a period looking paving with the addition of new boundary walls and electric gates.

5KC managed all planning, building regulations and the health and safety of the project

We are very pleased with this project.

The Function Room


The Function Room, St Helen's, Merseyside

Status: Main Plastering Contractor

5KC were incredibly proud to complete work on The Function Room. This building is outstanding and the finish is absolutely second to none. We created domed ceilings, arches and added many characteristics that just aren't seen in modern construction anymore.

The Function Room opens its doors in September 2011 and we are so proud to have worked on the project.

Renovation works


Project: Princes Park Mansions, Liverpool

Status: Principal Contractor

We have carried out work so far to this grade 2 listed building in phases. The first phase was to ovehaul the main roof structure and carry out repairs to all lead box gutters and slates etc, and the second phase was the internal renovation and refurbishment works to a number of flats.

We have now started the structural refurbishment phase which is to carry out major structural repairs and refurbishment works including the rebuilding of retaining walls, mass concrete filling and resurfacing etc.

The project thus far has been exciting and such a pleasure to be part of, particularly working on such a beautiful building.
