“Turning one’s dream into reality is not something an ordinary company can do! Ours was not looking to be an easy construction project by any means. An extension, loft conversion, full scale renovation, hard landscaping and a list of unpleasant surprises a dilapidated property from the 20th Century would inevitably have. 7 months on and we are living the dream in our wonderful new home, for which we are extremely grateful to Keith and his hard working team of skilled craftsmen.
Projects like ours are never stress free. Throughout its length we always felt we had Keith’s full support and professional advice to rely on, whether it was construction design (architectural drawings often do not take account of practical situations!) or which skirting boards would go better with the doors and which paint or roof tile we should use! A multitude of decisions one has to make in the course of the project can be overwhelming. Keith’s exceptional responsiveness at the time when we required his professional opinion or simply needed a chat hesitating about something made it certainly a less stressful experience. Every detail of every construction stage was given a lot of thought by Keith – we were finding ourselves guided through the process in a very professional way. For both of us, who had never had any experience in construction it was extremely reassuring. We found Keith and all of his team to be very reliable, considerate for the space they work in, and very friendly too. All of them were praised by many of our neighbours who were able to see them work very hard through the length of the construction work.
We would like to thank KAT Construction for their professionalism and would have no hesitation in recommending KAT Construction to anyone, however complex a project.”

“KAT Construction recently completed an extension and remodelling of our property. We are very happy with the quality of the work that has been undertaken and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
As this was the first project we had undertaken we approached the work with some trepidation but Keith made the whole building process painless (well, as painless as it can be!) and we always felt like our project was in a safe pair of hands. Where he felt better results could be achieved by changing our original ideas and plans, Keith would pro actively make suggestions and the whole process felt like we were working collaboratively and in partnership.
We also have to comment on the professionalism of the whole KAT Construction team who did the job. We found everyone involved to be incredibly hard-working respectful and tidy and we have had many positive comments from our neighbours and other residents in the cul-de-sac where we live, about both the quality of the work undertaken and professionalism of the KAT Construction team.
Please feel free to call us for a reference and anyone wanting to see the work that KAT Construction has done is welcome to visit our property and see it for themselves.”

“Keith and his team were recommended to us by friends for our renovation project. Hiring KAT was one of the best decisions we could have made. Keith’s team are very professional and complete perfectionists. No corners were cut and they frequently made suggestions to improve the final look of our project – Keith has a great eye for small details. The quality of the work throughout has been exceptional and the final product is better than we could have hoped for. One particularly impressive aspect was Keith’s ability to find solutions to the inevitable unforseen issues that arise without worrying us about it, and real integrity with managing the pricing of the overall project.
Keith’s team were really respectful of the property, too. As we were living in the house while it was being improved, Keith’s team were extremely considerate in keeping the site clean and tidy, and more importantly, safe. We were aware that we would have a building company at our home for at least four months so it was important to us that we got along well with the team and felt comfortable with them in our house. Now that it’s all finished, I think the kids quite miss having them all around!”

“KAT Construction provided a complete and all-round first-rate service on our renovation project. After a very disappointing start with a design company, which delayed our project by six months, Keith and the team stepped in to get us back on track. From planning through to completion, we received excellent support and advice, and Keith was happy to discuss each and every detail until we were satisfied.
We previously lived in Germany and were often told by friends and family who visited us that we could never expect the same quality of workmanship in England. In fact, we can honestly say that the detail and quality offered by KAT is better than that in our German house and this is a direct result of the pride and care which Keith and his team take in their work.
We are very happy to recommend KAT Construction and would have no hesitation in using them again ourselves.”
– Mark and Kathryn, Langton Green
“Our project was complex and due to the origial build date of our property (circa 1750), further compounded by the need for some creative budget management and the absolute need to meet a daunting project deadline.
After a lengthy tender process we were pleased to discover KAT Construction via a trade recommendation. KAT Construction breaks the mould and usual preconceptions associated with the building trade. From initiation to completion we found all at KAT Construction to be hard working, courteous and committed to a high standard of work.
We would have no hesitation in using KAT Construction again due to their competitiveness, quality and integrity.”
– Joe and Laura, Wadhurst
“KAT Construction have carried out several projects for us. I have found them to be reliable and their standard of work is second to none. Keith takes pride in his work and often makes suggestions that enhance final results..
I would have no qualms in recommending them to anybody.”
– Neil and Saffron, Tonbridge
“Our experience with Kat Construction has been fantastic, we have been thrilled with the work Keith has done for us. Previous jobs done by other builders were always stressful but I can honestly say that all the work Keith has done for us has been totally stress free. I completely trust his judgement and his advice is spot on. He and his team combine high quality work and efficiency with a reasonable budget, they are always courteous and thoughtful with nothing being too much trouble. Keith obviously takes pride in his work and I would definitely use Kat Construction again for any of my building works. I would confidently highly recommend Keith and Kat Construction to anyone. .”
