Choosing the Right Builder for your New Build Property


In London you will find a lot of building and brickwork companies who claim to be able to serve your needs professionally but as the building trade is an unregulated industry choosing the wrong building contractors could cost you or your business thousands of pounds.

In this guide, we will help you understand how to select the right building contractors for your new build property in London and beyond.


Look for Builders with Accreditations


Almost anybody could set up a limited business and say that they are expert builders but it takes many years of experience to plan the work needed for your brickwork project. A reliable and safety conscious organisation must be used to ensure that you get the service that you need and avoid unnecessary costs in the future.


Accreditations to look out for and that Orchard Brickwork are members of are:

  • Construction Line – Orchard Brickwork are Gold Members. Pre-qualified constructors available here
  • Faction Health and Safety Group – Health and Safety is Crucial on-site and accredited contractors are a must
  • CHAS Accreditation – One of the original 3rd party accreditation groups. CHAS accreditation is a sign of a trusted builder


Always check out the Brickwork Company that you’re working with

A good building contractor will be able to show you evidence of previous work when tendering for a project. At Orchard Brickwork we keep an updated gallery of our building projects on our website which allow new and existing clients to see the type of brickwork projects that we carry out.

You are able to to see our London building projects from blueprint to reality as well as seeing our team’s progress along the way. You can see more our out building projects here.

If a builder can’t show you any previous work, it is unlikely that they understand what’s needed to complete a full new rebuild project for you.
