Marshal Construction and Building Services

We asked Bruce Marshall of the above company to quote for and subsequently undertake building and renovation work at the above address in September 2014.

The work carried out was the construction of a large single storey extension with vaulted ceiling containing Velux windows and two large multi-fold oak patio doors.

Also a complete renovation of the ground floor of the existing property including new ceilings throughout with low energy lighting, new engineered wood floors, new oak effect internal doors plus skirting and architrave.

A new state of the art kitchen and upstairs bathroom were also installed including all electrics and plumbing.

Bruce handled all of the project management and organized building inspections, deliveries and waste material removal according to strict time slots.

Upon completion of the building work the gardens and block pathways around the property were restored to their former condition.

We are now the proud owners of a beautiful home and are very grateful to Bruce and his team of consummate professionals for the outstanding workmanship and attention to detail he afforded us during the entire project.

Bruce and his team are friendly, hardworking, knowledgeable, trustworthy and reliable and we would not hesitate to use them again or recommend their services to others.

Any inspection of their work at theirs address can be arranged through Bruce.
Top Job, top Team!

To whom it may concern

In September/October 2011 Marshall Construction and Building Services carried out internal and external work to my property in Oundle.

Internally they converted two separate rooms to form a new kitchen diner.  This involved removal of an internal wall, the blocking off of one doorway.  The old ceiling was removed and replaced including new lighting.  Radiators and electrical sockets were relocated and a large portion of the room was re-plastered.

In addition, Bruce converted one hell of an existing attached garage to form a new dining room with direct access from the house.  This required the removal of part of a supporting wall before building the new room.  The new walls, floor and ceiling were constructed, and insulated before installation of lighting, radiator and electrics.  A garage door was removed and replaced with a double-glazed window, all in accordance with building regs.

We were delighted with all of the work carried out and the quality of finish which was to the highest standard and to our entire satisfaction.  The project was completed on time and to schedule.
From day one, Bruce and his team arrived promptly each day until the work was finished.  They were friendly, professional, helpful and there was remarkably little mess.

I have no hesitation in recommending Bruce Marshall and Marshall Construction and Building Services to anyone considering having work carried out on their property.

Re: Bruce Marshall & Marshall Construction of Oundle.

I am very happy to provide a reference for the above company.
In the summer of 2014, I contracted Bruce to build a boundary wall and a double garage with an integrated office.

Bruce was flexible and completely reliable.

The workmanship was first rate and I am very pleased with the finished project.

It is exactly what I wanted and the cost was kept at the original price we agreed.

The work was completed on time, there were no problems and I would have no hesitation in employing Bruce again on other building projects.

Reference for Marshall Builders

Marshall Building have carried out two sizeable projects for us: a barn conversion/rebuild and a kitchen/dining room conversion.

The barn work included:

A complete rebuild from the window up
Excavation of the foundations to lay new floor and damp proof etc
Electrics and plumbing
All the interior work and fitting of a bathroom and kitchen

The kitchen/dining room work included:

Wall removal and supports installed
Folding doors and windows fitted
Electrics and plumbing
Plastering walls and ceilings

We have been really happy with the quality of work carried out, the finish and the attitude of the people carrying out the work.  Both jobs were completed on schedule and Bruce kept us up to date with what was happening, why and when.  This really helped to keep the stress of having building works done to a minimum.

I have recommended Marshall Building to friends and family and would definitely use them again!


Steve Sillett

Dear Bruce

Many thanks for the work you carried out for us recently.

The conversion of one of our garages to an additional room to our house was completed to a high standard and within the proposed budget.  We were abroad for some of the time you were here and we appreciated the fact that we were able to leave the keys with you safe in the knowledge that the work would progress in our absence.
It was pleasing to employ a builder who was reliable, courteous and professional.

If any of your future customers require a reference I would do so with no hesitation.

Kind regards

Re: Two Storey Extension

Dear Bruce,

Many thanks for you hard work over the past couple of months.
Despite complicated ground conditions I am grateful that you still managed to finish on time and, most importantly, within budget.
The works have been carried out to a high standard and the new extension has really opened up our kitchen and lounge area’s making them feel bright and spacious.

It was also pleasing that you paid particular attention to detail with regard to the finishing and also the clearing of the site, as everywhere was left extremely clean and tidy, inside and out.

If any of your future customers would like a reference just give me a call, I would be happy to chat about your work.

Best Wishes

To whom it may concern.

Marshall’s carried out a really excellent and highly professional job. They clearly know their stuff and showed their experience via a close attention to detail to get everything right.  Bruce and Kevon were as unobtrusive as was possible to be and focused throughout.

We can unhesitatingly recommend Marshall’s based on the work done for us.


Sarah and Chris Haines

Dear Bruce,

We are writing to thank you for the excellent work that you and your team did at March Cottage in April this year.  You were extremely reliable and efficient and got the job finished in a very short time.  Knowing a builder that phones when he says he’s going to phone; arrives when he says he’s going to arrive and finished the job when he says he’s going to it is a rare find indeed.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to future clients and would be happy to show anyone the work that you have done for us.

Thanks again Bruce

Yours sincerely


David & Denise Wilson

Dear Bruce

I would like to express my thanks for the work recently carried out on my property, you were professional and competent, and the site was cleared and left immaculate.

I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and will hopefully use your company to block pave my drive in the future.

Yours sincerely


D.S. Akroyd

In the past five years I have employed Marshall Building Services to build a garage, to build a porch and to carry out emergency repairs when both were seriously damaged by a falling tree some two or three years later.

I have no hesitation in recommending them for any kind of building work which they may be required to do.

Bruce Marshall produced the drawings and obtained planning permission, he carries out the work himself, is a first-class craftsman in brick and stonework, in tiling, in working hard and efficiently.  He takes a pride in his work.

In my opinion his particular advantage is that he works on the job himself and does not employ labour which may less competent and slower.  As he operates with a minimum of overheads his charges are usually extremely competitive.

I am glad to commend him to anyone who may be intending to employ him.


Tim & Judith Herring

Marshal Construction and Building Services completed a large kitchen extension for us over the summer of 2013.

This was a single storey kitchen extension to the rear of our house, constructed of natural stone with a reclaimed slate pitched roof.  The project also included the fitting of multifold doors and two large conservation roof lights.

We were very very impressed with the service provided by Marshal Construction throughout the project, from the initial quote process and drawings to the final attention to detail including full decoration.

We would recommend Bruce without hesitation and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.


Sue & John Butcher 

Dear Bruce, 

We are absolutely delighted with the finished work and would like to thank you for your courteousness and professionalism.  We hope that you may be able to carry out any further building work we may require in the future, and we will be very happy to recommend you to all our friends! 

Kind regards
