At Hutchinson Builders we regularly work with many different local councils, including:
- Cambridgeshire County Council
- Cambridge City Council
- Central Bedfordshire Council
- South Cambs District Council
On this occasion our contract was with Dacorum Borough Council. Due to a change in circumstances, one of their residents was in need of an extension to house a bedroom and wet room extension.
Our first job was to remove part of the joint shed that was shared with the property next door. This was necessary in order to gain access to start the extension. The neighbouring property needed their half of the shed to remain structurally sound and watertight, so the new external wall was made good and the remaining shed re-roofed.
The residents remained in their home whilst the work was carried out and we understand that it’s impossible to negate all disruption, but we strive to minimise it, and at all times we are:
The requirements of local government projects often differ from those of the general public and high quality workmanship at an affordable price is essential. As an approved contractor we have
completed numerous local government projects and will consider any project, large or small.
"Hutchinson’s are without out doubt one of the best firms (of builders) I have ever dealt with. They are very thorough, their staff are excellent, and they are very focused on quality. The close involvement of Martin West and Robert Hutchinson made sure that no details were left unattended and Peter Dolling’s very close and hands-on management of the project gives great confidence that everything aspect of the job gets finished to a high standard. They have been a pleasure to work with and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them."
"The Gamlingay Eco Hub – A terrific use of space bringing the whole community together. Superb finish and attention to detail."
"Thanks to Hutchinsons building the Eco Hub so well, the Eco Hub has just been entered for another national award, this time by SCAMBS District Council themselves. The LABC Award is for Building Excellence and is all about the essence of good buildings shown from a construction and technical building control point of view. As an architect, I am not surprised that Hutchinsons are starting to win national recognition for high quality construction. Here’s hoping we win this one too."

"The wall at the entrance has been rebuilt and widened, the shop has a much needed new storage area and there is a much larger and welcoming Visitor Reception building to meet and greet visitors."
"G&S Hutchinson provided a very helpful, flexible and friendly service under difficult circumstances with Huntingdon Bus Station remaining operational whilst the works were being carried out."
Harrogate Civic Society Judging Panel
"Achieving the seemingly impossible task of bringing the building back into use without damaging any of the historic features which make this building part of Harrogate’s heritage."
