Established Sussex-based Building Contractors


Colbran & Wingrove Building Contractors are based in Eastbourne and work across East Sussex and Brighton & Hove, managing domestic and commercial building and renovation projects.

 

Our multi-skilled team of tradesmen includes bricklayers, groundworkers, carpenters, joiners and decorators, giving us the resources and expertise to undertake wide-ranging projects. We’re also experienced partnering with different trades, including electrical and plumbing and appointing specialist skills where required.

We work closely with several excellent, independent architectural practices in the area. Our flexible approach means we can work with your chosen architect, refer you to a good local architect, or contract directly with a reputable architect whom we can employ under and a design and build contract.

 

What You Can Expect

  • Detailed quotations
  • Clear communication
  • Meticulous project management and attention to detail 

And we offer free initial consultations so that you can discuss your ideas, explore your options and identify likely costs without obligation. Many of our clients come back time and again and happily recommend us. Read what they have to say.

 

What We Do

  • Commercial projects
  • Residential projects
  • Full building service

We have been creating, adapting, extending, repairing and maintaining buildings for over 40 years. In this time, we have worked in public spaces, such as churches, schools, offices and more. We’ve transformed home interiors, brightened and modernised exteriors and turned dreams and plans into beautiful new buildings and spaces. View some of our recent projects.
