Our approach

Ship Shape Construction is unlike other building contractors. We deliver the standard of finish and craftsmanship that you expect, but what sets us apart is an unparalleled level of service and the integrity with which we operate.

We are professional, but combine this with a client friendly, personal approach. Working collaboratively, we embrace change and ensure that we cater for our clients’ demanding requirements. Regular project meetings involving the design team and accurate cost reporting throughout the build process provide transparency, control and reassurance.

We are very proud of our portfolio of work, which includes projects from the very contemporary through to delicate restoration of listed buildings. This extensive experience has allowed us to build and maintain talented site teams and each project is assigned its own Site Manager from the outset, backed up by a dedicated Commercial Manager/QS. These permanent teams are augmented by exceptional specialist contractors with whom we have forged strong working relationships over the past decade. They operate with exactly the same standards and ethos as Ship Shape.

Most of our work comes from recommendations and referrals from the clients, architects and interior designers we have worked with previously. Our portfolio includes the traditional tendered project as well as those awarded on a negotiated basis. If you would like to contact any previous client or architect for a confidential discussion of their experience using Ship Shape Construction, we would be very willing to arrange this.
