What our clients have to say about our work.

“I would highly recommend Mitchells Construction without reservation when considering any small our large building works.”
Mr Welch, Eastbourne
“I have been working with Ben and Joe since 2018 (in 3 separate phases) as the Project Manager on the refurbishment of a 1970s church administration block, toilets, kitchen, adjoining Victorian church hall, sanctuary and construction of a lift shaft. Due to the various historic construction methods that were previously employed numerous unforeseen problems were encountered. During these problems and at all times Ben and Joe have shown the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. The standard of their work has been exemplary, the lift installation company fitters commenting that it was the best lift shaft they had worked on.

The first major problem was the imminent collapse of a substantial Victorian internal wall (which could not have been foreseen) and that could have had catastrophic repercussions. The second being the discovery of floor joists that were failing despite having been previously repaired by others. The collapse of the floor could have resulted in critical damage to new boilers that had previously been installed below. Ben and Joe reacted to both situations with extreme professionalism and with constant communication with myself. They came up with both cost effective and safe solutions that were implemented.

The standard of work and the finished results has given the church modern facilities that are light, spacious and welcoming.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and Joe (Mitchells Construction) for your building project.”

Mr Batten (On Behalf of Beulah Baptist Church), Bexhill
“Ben & Joe worked tirelessly over 7 months to transform our tired Robertsbridge cottage. In that time they were never less than professional, honest & easy to deal with. They made a complex subject for novices like us much easier to understand. Their advice was always helpful & their eye for detail always good. More importantly, what they built was everything & more we could have hoped for. Thank you both.”
Mr Pexton, Robertsbridge
“The successful delivery by Mitchells of a new clubhouse was a game changer for our club. Although the club was successful, for many years its home was woefully short of basic contemporary standards which had become a limiting factor in its development.

The club undertook a rigorous procedure to ensure the selection of the builder who would be supportive of the challenges of a project that was primarily funded via public grants.

The project itself faced many challenges including architectural oversights, the late discovery of a high voltage cable close to the building which cause significant delays and time pressure to be ready of the start of the cricket season. By maintaining a close working relationship with Mitchells we were able to overcome these and successfully deliver the project.

The new clubhouse is widely regarded as a huge success by the club, the local community and the regional council who were key stakeholders in the project.

Throughout the project Mitrchells Construction demonstrated exceptional levels of professionalism and formed a close working relationship with the club’s committee to ensure its successful delivery.

As the project was primality funding via public grants, cost management was an overriding consideration and Mitchells were instrumental in helping to identify innovative solutions that delivered cost efficiencies whilst maintaining quality,

The project faced many challenges and Mitchells were proactive with resolving these issues which allowed the committee to focus on the remaining aspects of its responsibility. Mitchells always made themselves available, including outside working hours and weekends, to answer questions and discuss any matters in relation to the project.”

Mr Whittick, Horsham
“The key reasons I chose Mitchells Construction to build my house were that they would incorporate project management and see the project through every stage of the process themselves. This was my first house build and I wanted sustainability to be at the heart of the process and reflected as much as possible in all the details and decisions. I had researched many of the aspects of environmental building and knew what was important to me. Living alone on site it was important that I had a well-kept site with builders who were respectful, communicated well and had a good attitude.

I am so pleased Ben and Joe did the work as I just love the house and garden I now have. Not only do I love the result but neighbours and passers-by tell me they appreciate this lovely home that blends into the environment overlooking a nature reserve. They paid great attention to every detail and met and overcame the many challenges that this project presented. Neighbours commented on how tidy and polite my builders were especially important as building on a one-way track with access issues. Importantly they both advised me on products and were guided by what I wanted and where necessary helped me choose, obtained quotes etc. I presented many new challenges with my eco build such as a rainwater harvester which needed to be converted to a grey water system when deciding this after installation. Moving the sewage treatment plant when the high-water levels were discovered; Laying brick paths instead of Indian sandstone to enable a smaller carbon footprint, working with Natural England guidelines on bats (which have returned), the list goes on.

Now I am living in my new home I am really enjoying so much of what my house offers. To list a few: a warm home with low electricity bills, open plan living with ability to close off spaces through a pocket door etc, feeling a part of the landscape, a beautifully finished timber frame home with attention paid to interior and exterior finishes. With the growing challenges of climate change, dwindling resources and biodiversity loss I have a home for the future that uses minimal resources and is part of and aids its habitat.”

Ms Munro, Winchelsea Beach
“We have both been Estate Agents in West Sussex for the last 30 years, have moved house ten times, and have seen many building projects come and go over the years. When we bought a house in Eastbourne we were keen to use a local building company. We are very grateful that Ben and Joe made the refurbishment of our house a very easy and pleasant venture. We are delighted with the quality of the finish and only wish that Mitchells Construction was local to West Sussex and we would recommend them wholeheartedly to our clients.”
Mr Ward, Meads Village, Eastbourne
“Mitchells Construction have just completed a rear extension to the kitchen of my property in December 2011. The scope of works included, enlarging openings from dining and kitchen area to the extension, construction of new footings, laying new flooring, construction of external walls and roof, plumbing alterations, decorations and installation of new kitchen appliances.

The works commenced on the date agreed and were completed on time within the six weeks as per schedule.

The work carried out was very professional and of a very high standard. The builders were always on time, organised, flexible, efficient, very polite and good humoured from providing the quote for the works to the completion of the project. The team were also willing to give sound advice during this time.

Ben Mitchell, Company Director and his team have done an excellent job and I would highly recommend Mitchells Construction without reservation when considering any future small or large building works.”

Mr Welch, Eastbourne
“Mitchells Construction carried out the conversion of a dilapidated existing three car garage at our home. The work involved a number of features including the erection of an oak frame to provide structural support, provision of under floor heating; creation of a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and the creation of new windows and doors.

Mitchells Construction also carried out various external works in association with the project, a grass banked Ha-Ha wall and a Folly wall of traditional appearance together with a formal pond and related pathways.

We were and still are extremely pleased with the quality of the work and the final outcome. We have since asked them to build a front extension in oak framing and a first story bathroom with which we are also delighted.

I am happy to recommend the firm and Ben and Joe the people most involved in the works.”

Mr Wilson, Ticehurst
“I am absolutely delighted with the fireplace. You interpreted what I wanted; the work was done very efficiently and tidily in the time frame and your choice of oak beam was spot on.

Everyone who has seen the fireplace has been impressed by the standard of work, and those who met you whilst the work was being done commented how polite and considerate you both were.

The work was completed in line with the free quote and whilst you were not the cheapest of the three quotes I received your professionalism and practical knowledge when you came to quote was the deciding factor.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you.”

Mrs Sayward, Rustington
“Mitchells Construction is a reputable firm of local property developers who Shuttleworth Estate Agents are pleased to be associated with. We have acted on their behalf on the sale of properties they have built and refurbished and because their standard of work has always been high, we have

been able to secure buyers for them without difficulty. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Mrs Hodge, Bexhill-on-Sea
“Ben and Joe carried out extensive refurbishment work to my kitchen, lounge and dining room. I was overwhelmed by their friendly and professional nature and the consistent high quality of their workmanship. My friends loved my new kitchen and Ben and Joe ended up replacing their kitchen too. I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
Mrs Cains, Hooe
“Mitchells Construction completed a garage conversion and side extension in 2008 to accommodate my elderly mother. Work was completed promptly and with minimal disruption despite limited working space. We were so delighted with the quality of the work in the annex we have since had Ben and Joe replace our kitchen, bathroom and en-suite. Thank you boys for all your hard work over the years.”
Mr Steele, Eastbourne
“Ben and Joe worked on an extension and large landscaping, fencing, patio and driveway project between June and September 2016. They have transformed my bungalow into a beautiful home. They are dedicated, professional and honest. Their willingness to share their experience and knowledge has been outstanding. For me the best part about them has been that have always had my best interests at heart they took all the worry’s and stresses away from me. They are my heroes and I would now consider them as my friends.”
Ms Glynn, Bexhill
