Traditional Values – Innovative Techniques

Pilbeam Construction are building and civil engineering contractors. We deliver large-scale building projects across the south east – within time, on budget with minimum fuss and upheaval.

Pilbeam Construction started as a family firm of building contractors back in 1955. Since then, we’ve grown into a 40-strong team who design, build and manage multi-million pound projects across the south east.

We can comfortably accommodate large-scale, complex assignments across a range of sectors. Unlike our bigger competitors, we pride ourselves in providing a personal service and a collaborative, proactive approach throughout – from the Directors right through to site managers.

We have a proven track-record in delivering challenging projects on time and within budget – including those in demanding live environments. A stable, loyal team and `can do’ attitude have meant successful delivery of wide-ranging contracts from £400,000 to £5 million.
