Gainsborough Builders – No Project Too Big Or Too Small

Ken Wood and Sons Construction Limited is a family managed business founded by the late Ken Wood; and has been established since May 1991. The company is owned and run by Philip Wood and Roy Wood, with Daniel Howitt (Company Manager) managing and developing the company on a day to day basis.

We have become a leading competitor in the local construction industry, especially within the Gainsborough area and we are well known for our high quality of workmanship. We started out from a small office in 1991. From there on Ken Wood and Sons has grown quickly. This resulted in the need to build a central office from where all our operations and works could be co-ordinated. So in 2002; we constructed a development of 4 industrial units, keeping one for our new base.

Our growth has resulted in an increase of workforce, turnover, regular business clientele and respect within the industry, where we were ultimately rewarded with the West Lindsey District Council’s Built in Quality Award Winners and are also members of the NHBC, the Guild of Master Craftsmen and the Federation of Small Businesses.

Ken Wood and Sons are a Limited company offering services that include design and build packages, new build developments and refurbishment and maintenance works to various schools, residential properties and commercial, retail and industrial businesses within the Lincolnshire, Humberside, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire area.

Let’s Build Something Together

How Do I Choose The Right Building Contractor For Me?

You should always look for reviews of building contractors, this means you’ll get a good idea of what previous customers think of them. It’s important to consider experience – how long have they been trading? Make sure that when you meet them, that you feel you can trust your building contractor. You’re going to be spending a significant amount of money so it’s vital you feel like your building contractor is trustworthy.

Will Costs Be Agreed Before Work Starts?

You’ll receive a thorough quotation with a full breakdown of all elements of your project. All costs will also be broken down so you know exactly where your money is going. Whatever your budget is, our project managers will make sure you don’t exceed it.

How Are Prices Worked Out?

When we take on a project there’s lots for us to consider when pricing. Of course there’s materials, time and labour, as well as this we also must take into account risk. Finally it’s margins and overheads. If you get a price that’s dramatically more or less than you expected it’s often a red flag. Something has been missed or misinterpreted – don’t be afraid to question your builder on costs. 

Do You Use Sub-Contractors?

Here at Ken Wood & Sons we use sub-contractors that we trust. Usually tradespeople that we’ve worked with numerous times and are confident in the quality of their work. We know where our expertise lies and aren’t afraid to delegate work to specialised traders. With so many years experience we’ve developed strong relationships with recognised businesses.

What Kind Of Building Work Do You Do?

Our team are vastly experienced in both residential and commercial construction. From listed buildings to new builds our team can do it all. Our commercial experience spans from large industrial buildings to office extensions, we make sure each project is on time and on budget. As well as this, we hold all of the necessary accreditations to carry out Insurance and Grants work.
