“I didn't have to look any further”
Wary of building industry I decided to self-manage my renovation project and at one point needed to involve a professional. I contacted various companies and once I met with Jeff it became apparent I didn't have to look any further.
He promptly answered my enquiry, knew exactly what needed doing to achieve what I wanted, was professional, respected the schedule and really took the stress out of the whole thing by arranging and coordinating different professionals. He was always true to his word and explained things. The work was completed to a professional standard and the flat was left neat and tidy.
Jeff is such an adept, knowledgable and decent guy who selflessly provided me with a valuable advise on other aspects of my project he is not going to be involved with.
This industry should have more people like Jeff.
“Jeff and his men did a fantastic job”
We hired Jeff at Big Bean Construction based on Houzz reviews, so we had concerns. These concerns were allayed pretty quickly once Jeff and his builders started.
Firstly, we received a quote and Jeff basically stuck to it even though we asked him to do more tiling around the windows (originally we had thought to just paint around the windows, then we changed our mind) which means the job took longer than expecting.
In terms of craftmanship, Jeff and his men did a fantastic job replacing a bathroom and a cloakroom. I would highlight the great attention to detail (especially when it comes to tiling) and the fact that Jeff's main builder always cleaned after himself and left the "building site" in clean conditions every night. The finish is very good and everything works very well (shower, toilet etc).
We will get Jeff in again to do more work in the future and would not hesitate to recommend him.
It couldn't have been easier dealing with jeff throughout the whole process.It was quite a big job in a beautifu house in North London. Thanks for the opportunity and we hope to work again with Big Bean Construction soon.
— Plantation Shutters
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jeff and the Big Bean team for renovation work at my primary residence in London. As ever, there is a lot of mutual trust involved in contracting a builder for a home-project. From the outset, this trust was established with Jeff - he was extremely competent, insightful and totally up-front. He also made me feel very comfortable that he and the team would take any problems/snags in his stride. My trust proved to be well-founded, and I would like to thank Jeff and the team for all their hard work - the apartment looks great!
“Fantastic, Professional, Knowledgable”
Jeff and the team did a renovation project for us in 2015, and they were fantastic. Professional, knowledgeable, always easy to deal with they were flexible when it mattered but have good direction and advice consistently. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
“Transparent, Open and Honest”
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that the builder we get to do up our precious home is a cowboy and doesn't care as much as we do. Jeff is not that guy. He is transparent, open and honest and will listen patiently and respond kindly as you worry about the transformation your home is undergoing.
Big Bean construction helped design a new kitchen and living space for my family home, and oversaw the complete refurbishment. From the design stage to completion they were not only innovative, but incredibly attentive, and prompt. I was particularly impressed with the aftercare, which wasn't contractural. Recommended.
