We believe in investing in the future of the construction industry and over the last few years we have supported two apprentices in the successful completion of their courses and in becoming fully qualified in their chosen trade. Both apprentices are now working full time within the industry. We have worked in association with Greater Brighton Metropolitan College and Central Sussex College over the last few years and look forward to taking on more apprentices in the future.
I’ve contracted Portland Construction to carry out various different projects for us. Ranging from high value section 20 works where they are re-roofing 23 flats to rebuilding retaining boundary walls. They are thorough, professional and trustworthy and get the job done. I would highly recommend Barry and his team.
We have been using Portland Construction for the last 8 years and the service and work from Barry Kerrison and his team has always been very professional, on time and of high quality. Portland Construction has carried out work for many of our clients from new bathrooms to new kitchens and redecoration and I myself have used Barry for years with work both at home and my holiday let flat. I am always happy to recommend Portland Construction.
We recently bought a family home in Hove which needed complete renovation. We are very impressed with the build quality and craftsmanship demonstrated by Portland Construction. They worked with the highest level of professionalism to complete the works to our budget, specification and time plan. Barry and his team worked proficiently, showing great attention to detail in creating our new family home. They are very polite and courteous, and we would certainly recommend them for any job without hesitation.
Portland Construction was recommended to me by a friend as I was in need of urgent help to completely refurbish my newly purchased house. When I met with Barry Kerrison he offered expert advice and a great deal of patience. Having explained what I needed, and how quickly I needed it to be finished they set about the task and never once let me down. The whole team were dedicated to getting the job finished, and nothing was too much trouble. I now have a beautiful old house completely refurbished to a very high standard and exactly how I wanted it to be. I am delighted with my new home and I would be very happy to recommend Portland Construction to anyone looking to have work done no matter how big or small the job.
We have been working with Barry and his team since October 2012. In that time Barry and his team have been dedicated to helping us renovate our front office and the exterior of the building as well as updating some basic amenities. Their dedication and understanding of our clients has been particularly appreciated. Barry and his team first helped us introduce central heating throughout the building and then worked alongside an interior decorator to help transform our customer service areas into a comfortable and welcoming area. Barry’s experience has been invaluable throughout helping to keep costs down but still providing an excellent finish. Finally they have provided extensive repairs to our garages and outside walls in time with the fitting of new signage. Their informal yet professional approach makes them very easy to work with and Barry and his team have already become invaluable members of our extended team. So much so that some of them pop in for a cup of tea just because they are in the area!
I cannot speak too highly of Barry and his team. I had decided on a face-lift for my decent but rather tired kitchen and ended up with a wonderful transformation, inspired by Barry’s imaginative design and planning and carried out by an amazing group of experts in their trade. Everyone was so considerate and nothing was too much trouble, a really lovely group of personalities to share my house with. Somehow the kitchen proved the springboard for further great flights of imagination on Barry’s part and I now have a superb new bathroom, boiler, airing cupboard, updated water and gas piping and safe and extensive new electrics. A lot of work over some months and all of high quality. Busy as he is, Barry was always cheerful and patient and available to discuss the most trivial matters. I really felt throughout the project that I couldn’t have been in better hands.
