Established over 130 years ago in 1878, Bakers of Danbury are a building company with a reputation for providing high quality craftsmanship. Based in Danbury, Essex, We employ a team of experienced stonemasons, carpenters, joiners and other tradesmen, some of whom have worked with us since our apprenticeship scheme. We work throughout East Anglia, London and parts of Kent and Hertfordshire.
Bakers of Danbury specialise in, and have worked on, some of the regions' finest historical and listed buildings, churches and monuments, including St Paul's Cathedral. OUr repetoire also encompasses new builds and refurbishment in the educational, commercial, housing and health sectors. Due to the type of work we do, we have a dedicated insurance repairs division that works closely with leading insurance companies, specialist loss adjusters and engineers to repair structural faults in buildings. We have traditional skills and ethics, but also stay up to date with the latest building techniques.
As a principal contractor our projects benefit from our in-house stone masonry and joinery workshops which offer specialist stone cleaning and stone carving, woodcarving and architectural timberwork as well as full design/manufacture service of bespoke joinery and furniture.
Bakers of Danbury recently won a RICS East of England 2017 award for Building Conservation (for the restoration of a disused church in Quay Place, Ipswich) and a RIBA East 2017 award for Conservation (for our conservation work on St Albans Abbey).
