"Thank you! Ship Shape is officially the most professional contracting team I have ever worked with!"
Lidia Denino, Open Studio Interiors Ltd
"Ship Shape were the main contractor for a £1.4m project which involved the sensitive protection and restoration of a grade 2 listed building; an extension of the basement and ground floor; a Skyframe rear extension; large amounts of floor strengthening and the removal of several load-bearing walls within the listed building. Joel, the Site Manager, was committed and passionate about the job. The site was run well with particular emphasis on how tidy and organised it was. H&S was good. The project was particularly pressured as we entered into a tight contract with a thin set of production information at stage F1. I would be happy to recommend them (indeed, I recommended them to others in the practice and we are now working with them on a £4m+ scheme in Windsor)."
Ian A. Pedley, Michael Jones Architects
“Their management and trade personnel are friendly, professional and deliver the quality of build we want; we continue to recommend them to our clients”
Robert Dye Associates (Architects)
“Having worked with Ship Shape Construction last year on a £360k residential refurbishment Project we will certainly be looking to use them again. They provided a comprehensive tender on time and then completed the works on site within programme, within budget and to a high quality finish that satisfied both the Client and Architect. A very good professional Contractor that made the whole Project very easy for all involved.”
Ian Swaysland, ABA Quantity Surveyors
“ORMS have recently worked with Ship Shape Construction on a fast track, high quality residential refurbishment project in central London. The project was well managed, delivered on time and finished to a high standard. We found Ship Shape to be team-orientated, non-adversarial and quick to respond to client change. The quality of their direct-employed site labour was high and they showed a keen attention to detail throughout. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”

“We recently completed a residential extension and refurbishment project with Ship Shape Construction. Their on site staff were hard working and client friendly and their overall management of the project ensured easy communication and adaptability to change. This culminated in a high standard of finish which was delivered on time and to the clients’ budget.”
Wilkinson King Architects
“I have worked on four projects where Ship Shape has been selected for the building work, and each one has been carried out with utmost professionalism and care, achieving a high standard of workmanship. All four clients were more than happy with the final results, and there is no other Building Company who I would recommend as highly as Ship Shape.”
Peggy Prendeville (Interior Designer)
“I could not have wished for a better experience – you were reliable, helpful, sensible, patient, quick, efficient, careful and respectful and above all you have done the most beautiful job. It is, and will be a constant pleasure to be living in this house. Every day I see the thoroughness and detail and time that you have spent making my house so beautiful.”
“Ship Shape came recommended to us by our architect and we negotiated with them to hit our budget. We are extremely happy with the finished result and have just appointed Ship Shape to undertake another project for us. We continue to recommend them to others without hesitation”
Mr and Mrs Marovitz
“We were abroad during the entire construction period but our trust in Ship Shape’s integrity, diligence, and professionalism has proved to be not mislaid. They have maintained a constant dialogue with us during this period. Their cooperative approach and their experience in building works resulted in a seamless collaboration with other vendors. When we inspected the final product three months later, we were elated to see our vision has been beautifully materialised”
“Thank you for an excellent job, completed early and on budget.”
Mr C. Barrow
“Ship Shape Construction have significantly exceeded our expectations and completed the work to a uniformly high standard. Reliable and courteous, they have been a pleasure to deal with. Any problems have been addressed very quickly and have been accommodating of our very specific and demanding requirements. They had no difficulty overcoming tricky problems that occurred during the renovation, and have also contributed to the architects' design. The project was completed within reasonable time limits and best of all, within budget! We have no hesitation in recommending them to friends, and have done so. Thank you for a very smooth, pain-free renovation.”
Mr & Mrs Streater
“Following all the horror stories you normally hear about builders and refurbishment projects, we were very pleasantly surprised with our experience with Ship Shape. Anthony was courteous and professional throughout, always on hand to help and advise and even attended the property a number of times with a surveyor even before we contracted him to do the job. Ian and his team did a great job and we are very pleased with our new home. We would have no hesitation to recommend Ship Shape to others—our friends are amazed at how smoothly it all went! There are always small hitches with projects such as ours but thanks to Anthony’s calm manner these were kept to a minimum! In all, we are very grateful and Ship Shape does the building trade proud. Thank you for all your hard work!”
“From start to finish Ship Shape left its mark and showed that it was different from the pack. Detailed budget/quote, diligent work, courteous staff, helpful/guiding construction team and a company that actually speaks the same language as the client. Best of all - proved all our friends wrong and finished ON TIME. A big thank you!”
“Ship Shape were a pleasure to work with. The project was completed on time, and any problems that we encountered along the way were handled efficiently, professionally and amicably. We are delighted with the results and would definitely recommend Ship Shape to others”.
“Responsive and Customer friendly. Always aimed to please. Staff hard-working and knowledgeable. Very happy with finished product.
“We found Ship Shape professional to deal with, having a project manager gave us a simple route all communications. All staff were polite and easy to work with. The project was completed on time.”
