“We picked Hugh from other companies because he was the one who actually listened to what we wanted. All his craftsmen he brought in were totally trustworthy, and virtually became part of the family! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bruce & Co, and have done on several occasions"
Mel Dowling (Dining Room Extension with bi-fold doors onto the garden and new kitchen)
“Our country house was built by Bruce & Co. during 2013/14 and we are very pleased with the result. From concept to completion we were given helpful advice and despite being built during the wettest Autumn on record Hugh kept his good humour throughout. Although our stress levels rose during the weather delays Hugh’s experience meant that he kept a level head and maintained his renowned attention to detail. We now live in a beautiful family house with annex for Mother with plenty of room both inside and out for the Grandchildren”

“Bruce & Co., were very professional from start to finish. Everything I wanted was done how I wanted it. We were simply thrilled at the finished work. Our bungalow was built in the 1950s, and there was a lot to do to pull it into this century, but after a meeting with Hugh Allen (MD Bruce & Co) he carefully took note of all the work we wanted, from a beautiful block driveway, decorative walling, wonderful sandstone steps (cut and skillfully curved) through to a stunning new entrance hall. . we really love it, and when we are in the front garden we get so many comments from passers-by, some even knock on the door to ask who did the work, several of whom have also contacted Bruce & Co to see what they can do for them. I am looking forward to Bruce returning to do a 4th bedroom and kitchen extension in the not too distant future! ”

“I was most impressed with the quality of the work carried out on our bungalow, we now have a beautiful conservatory which leads directly off from the lounge with stunning bi-fold doors the whole width of the room that open up into it, giving the impression of so much more space. I would be very happy to recommend them to a friend. They were not the cheapest quote, but they were the best.”
Mr D Diamond. Bexhill-On-Sea. (Garage. Study. Feature Driveway. Patio. Conservatory and bi-fold doors)
“Worth his weight in Gold! Bruce & Co., came in and renovated much of our period home in Cooden Drive, which included replacing the whole the roof (using recycled tiles to ensure it was in keeping with the property) , removing unwanted giant chimney stacks in the house, installing new boiler and central heating system, new lighting throughout, building 2 new bathrooms, replacing all the old doors, and much more! We were totally delighted with all the work, it was exactly what we wanted and with some of the newest up to date technology we have some amazing features which we are now enjoying in our home.”
Mrs C Lambeth-Williams. Cooden Beach. (New Roof. Structural Alterations throughout and 2 New Bathrooms)
"I am happy to confirm that I was very happy with Bruce & Co’s standard of work throughout my extension works at 7 Marina Bexhill, Di Paolo’s Café/Ice Cream Parlour which now has a beautiful new fully licensed restaurant. I was also very happy with the finished project and the courteous manner in which the owner Hugh Allen discharged his responsibilities."
Mr J Di Paolo, Di Paolo's Bexhill On Sea. (New Restaurant, toilet block and extension leading into a new garden and patio area)
" As as Interior Designer I've worked with a large number of construction companies over the years and every so often a builder comes along who stands out from the rest. I can confidently say that Hugh Allen of Bruce & Co., is one of those. Hugh has a vast amount of experience in the building trade and you'd be hard pressed to find a situation that he hasn't come across and successfully dealt with before. Along with Hugh's years of experience I've always valued his advice and ability to suggest alternative ways of tackling any problem in sensible and budget conscious ways. Whenever I recommend a builder to a potential client high on my list of qualities is honesty, reliability, someone who respects the property and has a team that can work seamlessly together to create the home the clients hope for. I can say 100% that's what you'll get with Bruce & Co "
