Testimonials/ Reviews from our clients
We would absolutely recommend ABC construction: we dealt with several contractors before, but they stand out by a mile.
Tommy, 2 storey rear extension, Glasgow, March 2015
Superb project management, outstanding workmanship.
Since day one Andrew has provided top class communication, explaining step by step all the work required, materials and processes. ABC provided a thorough breakdown of costs and a detailed schedule which they observed all the way.
Half way through the build we had a major setback due to several weeks of torrential rain and Andrew was able to once again explain thoroughly the problem and the solution he deployed. In more than one occasion Andrew suggested some alterations to the architects drawings in order to make the build more functional and more cost effective. This lead to a saving of almost 10% of the total budget!
Andrew’s workmen were very professional, clean, tidy and quite simply really genuine, nice folks. Their finishing touches and attention to details are a delight to the eye and they are noticed by every guest we have!

We are very delighted with our finished home, it’s a great space and we are grateful to Andrew and his team at ABC Construction.
Chelsey and Alan, 2 storey rear extension, Motherwell, February 2015
After deciding to go ahead with a two story extension and extensive structural changes we approached several builders for a quote. We chose to go with ABC Construction for several reasons, firstly the level of communication and friendly manner during the tender process. Secondly, the fact that ABC where one of the few companies that asked to do a site visit at this early stage which increased our confidence. Thirdly, feedback first hand from other clients and via rate my builder. Finally, the excellent level of finish we have seen when we visited other sites they worked on.
ABC did not disappoint, the team were hard working and very flexible. They adapted well to several changes we made through out the process and overcame any issues that arose throughout the build. A fixed price contract was agreed upfront and Andrew ensured that we were aware when any of the changes we asked for impacted this and to what extent – which allowed us to manage any additional costs.
Following completion and true to his word Andrew and the team have been more than happy to return to site and fix a few minor repairs.
Overall we are very delighted with our finished home, it’s a great space and we are grateful to Andrew and his team at ABC Construction for the work they have done.
Fantastic, amazing, brilliant, outstanding, hard working, efficient, friendly.
Lynne, Design & Build of a rear house extension, June 2013
Fantastic, amazing, brilliant, outstanding, hard working, efficient, friendly. There is so many words to describe Andrew & his team at ABC Construction that I would not be able to fit it all in my Feedback.
The day Andrew first walked in to our home to discuss our extension we found him very professional, friendly, helpful and honest. They say first impressions normally give you a good indication of a person and their work ethic and this is what Andrew displayed when he visited us we definitely made the correct choice of Builder. He did the full Design & Build for our new extension which is just what we wanted having one team of people to deal with everything from start to finish. Quotes are a fixed price so there is no surprises at the end.
One of Andrews strengths is in his communication. He keeps you updated at every stage of the project and if you need to contact him by text or email he replies really quickly. They work long hours and hardly ever take a break. Their standard & quality of their work is Excellent and to the highest standard. They take pride in what they do and this has resulted in amazing results for my extension. We were so delighted with our project that we also got Andrew to do other stuff in our home while he was here doing our extension.
We have a great relationship with Andrew which was really important to us and we feel we have not only met a great builder who we can trust but have made a great friend which I am sure we will keep in touch in the future.
I can see now why they have so much positive feedback.
Robert, Rear extension, Milngavie, April 2014
Really pleased that we hired ABC Construction to build our extension. It was definitely a good decision.
Their workmanship was of the highest quality and no detail was overlooked. The builders were polite, efficient and always ensured that no mess was left behind.
We were kept fully informed about all on-going work and knew who will be doing what and when. All work was completed on-time and within budget which was important.
I can see now why they have so much positive feedback. They fully deserve it.
Disruption during work was kept to a minimum, quality of work and finish is excellent.
Stephen, Attick conversion, Burnside, February 2014
Fantastic job completed, very pleased with work. Andrew was excellent during entire process, very personable and approachable, flexible with original specification and our many revisions throughout. The whole team worked very well together and disruption during work was kept to a minimum, quality of work and finish is excellent.
Would definitely use ABC again for other work and no hesitation to recommend.
Andrew’s expertise in structural engineering and helpfulness made him stand out from the others.
Alison, Design & Build of a single storey extension in Cambuslang, April 2011
I cannot recommend Andrew and his team highly enough. The level of communication, reliability, co-ordination of trades and attention to detail was second to none.
The job was a one storey extension with new kitchen, utility and cloakroom as well as refurbishing our bathroom. We were unsure of how to achieve what we wanted as this was the first time we had undertaken any building work. We met with several builders and architects, however Andrew’s expertise in structural engineering and helpfulness made him stand out from the others. He was happy to meet with us every time we changed our minds about something and helped us navigate the process of building from paperwork and permits to finishing touches.
Andrew was available at all times and consulted us regularly making sure we were happy with the build. Everything was explained and every question answered.
Everyone that worked on the job was courteous and cheerful, always turned up and always worked hard all day; often staying late to ensure a task was completed. The team also worked weekends and our job was completed well ahead of schedule.
Building work is never enjoyable however Andrew and his team made it as painless as possible and I would HIGHLY recommend their services.
I know that we will never look to anyone else for any type of building work again and we cannot rate ABC Construction high enough.
Elizabeth, House extension Bo’ness, February 2012
I cannot say enough good things about Andrew and his team. They have been excellent and we are thrilled with the end result. In fact we have been so impressed with their hard work and cheerful, polite and hard working nature that we have already asked them to carry out more jobs for us and are busy planning more!
From the very first time we met Andrew we were impressed with his knowledge and serious work ethic which is matched by his highly skilled group of workers. I only wish I had involved Andrew from the very beginning and managed to cut out an architect and structural engineer as Andrew could have done this for us.
Andrew and his team worked hard to keep the disruption to a minimum and tidied up after themselves every day. Every day the team told us what they would be doing and it was done. They impressed everyone including our neighbours who all commented on their friendliness, hard work and tidiness and the quality of the work.
I know that we will never look to anyone else for any type of building work again and we cannot rate ABC Construction high enough. The job was completed in less than half the time quoted and came in on budget (which was highly competitive).
I know we will miss all the guys and we wish them all the best in the future. Many thanks again.
The work was done to a very high standard with little disruption.
Neil, Loft Conversion Bishopbriggs, December 2012
We would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and his team to others. They did a great job refurbishing and extending our loft. They were extremely hardworking and would arrive when they said they would then continue to work conscientiously throughout the day.
The work was done to a very high standard with little disruption. They were exceptionally tidy and the work was completed to a very high standard of finish.
Andrew kept in touch on a regular basis to ensure we were satisfied with the progress and was also available to give advice when asked. Can’t praise him and his team enough and would definitely use them again.
We felt entirely confident leaving the guys to get on with the job while we were at work and relied heavily on Andrew’s experience and design expertise to get the finished look.
Neil, House alterations Bishopbriggs, February 2013
We were so happy with the first job Andrew and his team did for us we decided to go ahead with a major renovation – knocking down walls, moving windows, doors, boiler and totally remodelling our downstairs living space and we are so pleased that we did. The new space is absolutely fabulous and it is all down to the hard work of Andrew and his team.
Andrew was always available to provide advice and suggestions and ensure there was as little disruption to us as possible while the job was underway. Andrew and his team all have an excellent work ethic and their attention to detail, quality of finish and general helpfulness is second to none. Despite us changing our minds on a number of occasions, even if the work had to be redone, Andrew and his team implemented our decisions without complaint or fuss. We felt entirely confident leaving the guys to get on with the job while we were at work and relied heavily on Andrew’s experience and design expertise to get the finished look. He would always be at the other end of the phone if needed and would often text to make sure we were happy with the work that had been done.
Yet again we would have no hesitation in recommending ABC Construction and plan to use them again for other work in the house.
The quality of the finished building is excellent inside and out and people who have viewed it are very impressed.
Ellen, Extension to a listed building Linlithgow, March 2012
I would highly recommend Andrew and his team. I agree with positive comments from others regarding honesty, work ethic and reliability. Also, Andrew is excellent at explaining things, helpful with ideas and solving problems.
Ours was a particularly tricky project in a conservation area with tricky access up a steep hill. They added a glazed gable end to an old Victorian house (accessed through a new opening where a fireplace had been) and restored a previously derelict outbuilding.
We initially knew about a well under the outbuilding and another was discovered on the first day of building! Andrew dealt with all these issues and others. For example, he discovered that the ground level was higher in our neighbour’s garden and problem solved how to damp-proof the outbuilding he was renovating. The Archaeologist commented that she found Andrew and his team the most polite and easy to work with that she has ever encountered. Neighbours have praised how polite the team were and how hardworking they have been.
I wish we had known Andrew from the beginning and avoided using a separate Structural Engineer and Architect. The quality of the finished building is excellent inside and out and people who have viewed it are very impressed.
One of Andrew’s many strengths is his communication with clients.
Fiona and Scott, Loft conversion Kelvindale, January 2013
We are very happy with Andrew and his team. They worked so hard every day and ended up completing the job much earlier than expected and to a very high standard. Each day they cleaned up after themselves which made the experience much easier for us. We were living in the house at the time of the loft conversion, along with our 20 month old toddler which could have been so stressful but the guys made it as easy as possible, working round nap times and going out of their way to keep out of ours! We decided to ask them to decorate too and I’m glad we did as everything looks perfect and so professional.
One of Andrew’s many strengths is his communication with clients. If you text him you will hear back, often within half an hour. I always felt as though I knew what was going on with the project; there were no surprises which was great.
At the end, Andrew and the guys worked extremely hard finishing off everything perfectly and I am so glad I hired them. They are all very polite and helpful beyond expectations (even carrying my shopping in one day – I’m 8 months pregnant).
His team of workers are very polite and tidy.
Brendan, Bathroom renovation Glasgow, April 2012
Andrew and his team are very hard working. They showed up on time and worked long hours to ensure that they completed the job on time. They carried out the work to high standard and additional requests that we placed on them throughout the build.
I would highly recommend Andrew and his team and everyone who has see the build have positively commented on his work. His team of workers are very polite and tidy.
