At BuildX, we consider ourselves to be one of the best and most reliable Property Services contractors in the south-west region covering Devon, Cornwall and West Somerset. We specialise in the top-to-toe refurbishment of void and occupied properties for local authorities, housing associations and community housing projects, with particular emphasis on insulated render systems and energy efficiency measures.
We’re established, we’re well known and we’re confident enough to know that we’re good at what we do. This is the reason why most clients are repeat clients, and we strive on a daily basis to produce the very best work we can through our directly employed workforce and network of trusted and reliable supply chain partners.
At BuildX we’re big enough to handle any project that comes our way yet small enough to care about the detail. Our business is built on three very simple, guiding principles. The quality of work we do, reliability in the way we do it and the consistent customer focused approach that we take at every turn.
When it comes to commercial renovation and refurbishment work, every firm always says that they’re reliable, professional and even ethical. The difference with us a BuildX is that we don’t just say it, we actually mean it and it’s the way we run our business every single day.
