New Kitchen Installation

Whether a modest or dream kitchen, we are expert fitters and can complete all building alterations, carpentry, tiling, electrical and plumbing work.


 We have been building in Cornwall for many years and have earned a strong reputation for quality and delivery. Our BUILDING CONFIDENCE promise sets out how we work – we follow these five commitments at all times.

Client Focused

We listen carefully, pay attention to detail, consult and provide sound advice at every key stage of a build and adapt if necessary, to ensure our client is delighted with the end product.

Outstanding Quality

We employ highly skilled people and use high quality materials. Our clients can be sure that our work will be right first time and completed to an excellent standard, even when budget is a priority.

Safe & Conciderate

We work with the health and safety of our clients, employees and public in mind. Whilst onsite we try to minimise disruption, tidy up as we work and are polite and communicative.

Fair & Fixed Pricing

Whenever possible, we will propose a competitive fixed-price quotation. If the project is not sufficiently defined, we can contract on a time and materials basis, providing open and fair cost estimates.

Guaranteed Results

Each key stage of a build is approved by our client.  Any final touches or snags will be dealt with before final sign-off. We will happily come back to fix any problems should they arise after completion.


We engage on anything from a simple skilled task such as plastering or a roof repair to full ownership of complex projects and new builds. For business clients, we can also operate through framework agreements.
