We were very pleased with the work you and your staff carried out for us over the past year and would have no hesitation in using you again

Care Home Extension


The extension of Broomfield Lodge care home by Brighter Homes took place while the home remained fully operational. The priority throughout the build was the safety and care of the residents. I cannot fault the care , attention and forward planning Brighter Homes put in place to ensure minimal disruption to the home/residents/staff throughout the build. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Bartellas - Restaurant Extension, Toilet Refurbishment and Private Fuction Room




Brief: Contruct a new restaurant extension to the side of the existing building and refurbish the new extension area. Convert the inhabited upstairs area to a function room, toilet and office. This project was designed by the architect, client and publican. 


Challenges: Timescales - priced 2 weeks prior to commencement and in advance of full planning and building control. The final price was agreed 3 days before work began on site and completed just 5weeks later.


"I've been heavily involved in some 300 restaurant openings over the last 30 years. I have never come across such a capable, co-operative, well organised, quality team who actually work with the end user and gets the job done on time, on budget yet in a professional and fun manner".


PizzaExpress CEO 1999-2002


Eco House Building



Brief: To build a bespoke eco-friendly luxury house using the latest specialist materials and make the property air tight to prevent the loss of heat. To supply and install a full heat recovery heating system.


Challenges: Due to the bespoke design and high end specification of this project many of the materials were sourced from specialist suppliers abroad with long lead times. All materials had to be preordered to arrive at the right time so as not to affect the programme.


Results: A spectacular eco-friendly new build house completed within programme that was featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.


“Brighter Homes are a modern and progressive construction company who always display honesty, integrity and professionalism. They operate a transparent pricing and costs. The professionalism of the company is evident at all stages of the project and their skills ensure superior workmanship throughout. Projects are invariably delivered on time and within budget to an extremely high standard”
