“I used Ken Biggs Contractors for a major rebuilding project in Dorset. It involved six buildings and took three years.
They did an amazing job. The quality of their work, their friendliness and their communication were all outstanding. Most importantly they cared as much as I did. Nothing was too much trouble.
I would happily use them again and recommend them to anyone.
They deserve continued success”.
“I was advised to go for 4 tenders but took the view that there was only one firm I wished to build my new house.
It was suggested that I would be taken for a ‘ride’ without competition but I insisted and I was not disappointed with my choice.
The quality of work and the efforts that all staff took was of great satisfaction to me.
My home has been greatly admired by the entire neighbourhood – all credit to the staff of Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd.”
Private Client/Retired Builder
“Selecting Biggs as the contractor for an extensive extension and renovation project to our listed home proved to be a good decision. Nothing was too much trouble, the work was carried out whilst we remained in residence. Site management was excellent, accommodating and skilful as were the labour-force who undertook the work.
The joinery from the company’s own workshop through the building is of a quality which would be difficult to achieve anywhere else.
The company has retained traditional values in a modern world, training and retaining genuine craftsmen and tradesmen able to work to demanding standards set by its directors and clients.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them strongly for any project where quality and professionalism is required.”
The careful selection of the right contractor was absolutely critical to the success of the £5m project at Wells Cathedral, and following staged interviews and tendering, Ken Biggs Contractors were selected.
They demonstrated throughout the long duration of this project their support and dedication to the Cathedral’s objectives, seamlessly managing the very complex construction processes and sequencing, whilst producing a series of new hand crafted buildings of great quality.”
The contribution of Ken Biggs and his team has been recognised by the Cathedral in the naming of the new building.

“Thank you so much for all your hard work, it is much appreciated and I consider the skills you have used and the final product are excellent.
When I initially approached you I was full of fear and trepidation having to cope with such a mammoth task on my own, however you all helped and guided me through.
Thank you so much.”
"I just thought I would drop you a quick note to say how pleased I have been with the work that Ken Biggs Contractors Ltd have carried out at our clients' property in Marlborough. This was a very large residential project, including substantial extensions, internal alterations and complete refurbishment of the existing farmhouse as well as the erection of a separate oak-framed outbuilding.
KBC managed every stage of the project extremely well, overcoming a number of difficulties with the programme such as the Listed Building status of the building, the presence of bats, the need for a watching archaeological brief and various client changes to the scope of work.
You have used highly skilled workers on all aspects of the build, which has lead to the desired outcome of a unique family home of the highest quality.
For all the reasons above I would highly recommend KBC and your Foreman to any future client or professional who is looking to carry out a similar building project.
