Traditional Values – Innovative Techniques

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 within the residential, commercial, health & care, education and heritage sectors across Sussex and the South East.

We pride ourselves in providing a personal service and a collaborative, proactive approach throughout – from the Directors right through to the site team. This enables us to foster close working relationships with our valued customers and supply chain, and create an environment for a high level of repeat business. We have embraced the changing world of construction and continue to do so to produce affordable, sustainable buildings to a reliable time frame.

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 `can do’ attitude have meant successful delivery of contracts. Typically, our projects range from £400,000 to £7,000,000 with our focus dedicated to delivering quality, reliability, speed and flexibility in mind.

Our business is ISO 9001 and 14001 accredited, a member of the National Federation of Builders, CHAS accredited, and registered with Constructionline and the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
