Award winning domestic and commercial building projects in Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West

Master Builder Awards Winner 2017

For the North-West Large Renovation Project category.  The Master Builder Awards recognise and celebrate Britain’s Best Builders. Contact us today to find out how we can build you an award-winning project.

Since 2002, the FMB’s Master Builder of the Year Awards have celebrated the best builders in the UK. These awards are particularly special as it is the clients who make the nominations. So we are incredibly proud to have three such awards, covering both domestic and commercial building projects:

2008, Low House

Nominated for the “best large conversion” North West of England category, we were awarded runner up.

2010, Epi Centre

Nominated for the “commercial project up to £3 million” North West of England category, we were awarded first place.

2012, Eller How

Nominated for the “small conversion” North West of England category, we were awarded first place.

As the Master Builder of the Year Awards are open to the whole construction industry and not just members of the Federation of Master Builders, we believe these awards are testament to our commitment to the very best building standards.

Please also see our projects pages for examples of our recent projects and award winning builds.


  • Renovation Great Langdale

    Jim Troughton has done various jobs for me over the last 12 years, commercial and domestic, including two major bathroom renovations. I've always found him to be totally professional and very competent. All jobs were completed on time and to budget and the quality of work is exceptional. Jim has employed the same small team of quality tradesmen for many years, which means you can be confident of getting the same high standard of work on every job. Jim is happy to take charge of the whole project, leaving the customer with the peace of mind to know that the job will be done properly and the site returned to the customer in a clean and tidy condition – very important in Cumbria where the job may be a holiday home where the owner cannot be on site continuously. I am currently undertaking a major bungalow renovation and I had no hesitation once again in trusting Jim and his team to do the work.
