Kingston Construction, building your dream house since 1987

Based in Barnstaple, North Devon, Kingston Construction have been delivering small to large scale construction projects to a number of clients since 1987. Our construction specialists make sure your dream house, building, conversion or extension gets done on time and within budget, without compromising on quality. Here is what some of our clients have to say about us and our constructions specialists.

Kingston was a great company with a polite, professional and talented workforce. It was a pleasure to have them here and their work was of a very high standard.

Mr. A Gothard

We would like to thank Kingston Construction for all the work done on the restoration of the old buildings at Challacombe farm. No more slipping slates and rain water running down stone and cob walls; the stable is usable again and the thatched round house a transformation. We are very happy with the results, many thanks to you and all the team.

Colin Rice

We were happy to have Kingston Construction build our new home. They were easy to deal with, very professional, produced workmanship of the highest quality and effortlessly accommodated our changes. We send our thanks to all at Kingston, we are extremely happy with our new home.

Mr and Mrs Spear

Throughout the six month duration of the restoration works on the barns, Kingston Construction’s small team have been invariably cheerful, well led, well organised and effective – resulting in an excellent and sensitive restoration. We would be very happy to work with them again

Mr and Mrs JH Gabb

We are very pleased that we used Kingston Construction on our project. They were very professional throughout the build and all the team seemed to take pride in their work and were courteous, very responsive and able to adapt to the inevitable changes and modifications that were required. The standard of workmanship was high and we are delighted with the result – Well done Kingstons!

Mr and Mrs A Wislocki

We used Kingston builders following a recommendation from my father who is a former local architect. The team were very helpful and advising and ably carried out internal works, causing little inconvenience. The build has been completed and the standard of finish exceeded our expectations. We are delighted with the result.

Vicky Randle

We have used Kingston Construction on numerous large-scale projects and they have always produced a first class finish within the timescales agreed. They act professionally and always with the client’s interest in mind. When unforeseen building challenges have occurred, which inevitably they do from time-to-time, they have been very helpful to solve any design or building issues with the minimal of inconvenience, cost and time delay. I would highly recommend Kingston Construction to any party, who, I am confident, will be very satisfied with their standard of workmanship, and pleasant positive approach to the job. On each occasion we have used Kingston Construction, they have faced the challenge of an open tender process, and in every instance, have not only been the most competitive but also the most committed to agreeing an attractive completion date. Every project we have undertaken with Kingston Construction has been professionally run, plus within the agreed quote and time scales.

Hexan Property Holdings

Kingston completed a loft conversion and total renovation on our property which included extension works, re-wiring, re-plumbing, replacement windows and doors – almost a re-build. Kingston completed on time and within budget and was extremely co-operative throughout, even adding and doing works which were needed but which we had not thought of. The foreman was brilliant.

Gillian Clennett

I am writing to say how pleased I am with the way this project has come to completion. The Threshing Barn, Roundhouse and Chicken Shed have been splendidly restored by Kingston Construction, carefully overseen by PWH as project managers. There is no doubt that unless I were to win the lottery, these farm buildings could not have been restored by me. As it is they are good for the next 75 years or more, and that is a tribute to both Kingston and PWH and most of all to Natural England without whose vision, policy and funding few of these farm restoration projects would be possible. To that end I am grateful to you all.

John Gabb

We wanted to give Swiss Cottage a thorough make-over which would make the most of its location overlooking Woolacombe beach and still respect the house’s 1930’s legacy. Kingston Construction worked with our architect to deliver us a practical and comfortable home with interesting features. Dave and Steve were great in finding cost effective solutions and, with their experience, gave invaluable, honest advice throughout. The site was run efficiently and considerately which meant the project went smoothly and made it a pleasure dealing with Kingston Construction.
