Meeting the needs of the area

Building in Peterborough has a long history that is in a large part linked to the very soil that the town is built upon – brick clay. While ancient Britons were still building their homes with mud and wood, the invading Romans first discovered clay pits around Peterborough and though other than evidence of their brickmaking work there is little trace of the Romans’ lives, this region has a rich history of brick built buildings that goes back millennia.

Britons had moved on in their techniques to stone and wooden frames in the 18th Century. Nearby Peterborough is the ancient market town of Stamford, which was made the UK’s first Conservation Area in the mid 20th Century. Over 600 of its buildings, generally made of stone and wooden frames, were built in the 1700’s and are Listed for their architectural merit. Build Peterborough have the ability to help you with your building and decorating work with due regard to local restrictions and regulation even in Conservation Areas.

In Victorian times the business of industrial production of bricks turned Peterborough into one of the national centres of brickmaking, something that is shown in the post industrial landscape of the modern town today.

Planning consultancy

Getting planning permission can be a real headache, even with recent regulation making it far easier to develop your home in the way you would wish. Getting planning experts who know the local regulations can save a lot of time and money simply by knowing what is possible and what will be refused altogether. Planning experts can ensure fewer costly rejections by the planning committee, and having to revise your plans time and again.

We work into the Conservation Areas in and around Peterborough and have the experience to know what is and isn’t feasible whether in an area that has relatively low regulation or in a Listed building where the authorities are very demanding as to the extent you can modernise your home.


There are a large variety of different bricklaying options that our bricklayers can use for different reasons. Whether building cavity walls for an extension with blocks and facing bricks, or decorative brick garden walls, you can be assured that our Peterborough bricklayers have the expertise to build what you need, quickly and to a high standard.

We can also produce decorative brickwork such as basketweave or herringbone brickwork if you wish to celebrate Peterborough’s history as a brick making town! Build Peterborough are experts in meeting the requirements of Conservation Area extensions and construction too and can work with a range of different materials to achieve the high standards you and your community require.


Build Peterborough have a team of plumbers who are available around the clock for emergency repairs as well as permanently resolving any issues from blocked drains to broken pipes. Don’t think twice – call us now to discuss your needs!

Our plumbers can provide the necessary work required for extensions and room conversions, conforming to all regulatory requirements and ensuring the best aesthetics in what we put in.


Carpentry can involve decorative and visible work as well as invisible and structural work. Our team of carpenters have decades of experience between them in helping build extensions, installing structural and non structural walls, as well as helping finish your space to the highest specifications.


Our specialist team of plasterers have many years’ experience in doing a large variety of projects, from extensions to refurbishments. Over the years we have worked on new homes as well as very old ones, and can produce your desired finish to whatever specification you require!

There are a number of areas of your home that our plasterers may end up working on. Insulated plasterboard inside the outer walls of the home and lath plastering on the internal walls are the bread and butter of the work we do. In addition our plasterers in Peterborough can render the external walls of the house as well as screed the floors of the building, perhaps as part of installing underfloor heating.

Painting and decorating

Often the final part of a construction and extension, and the most frequently changed part of the home is the painting and decoration.

Though many people think they can do a good enough job painting and decorating their home, when is ‘good enough’ as good as a professional’s work? Our team of painters and decorators in Peterborough can paint or wallpaper your entire home in as little as two weeks, perhaps while you take your family on holiday. You can return from your two weeks of relaxation to find your walls and ceilings done to the finish you desire – what better thing to come back to after your break?

On average it takes around 2-3 days to do per room, causing minimal impact to your home life as we paint and decorate the space to your requirements. Whether a new build or a complete redecoration of your home, we can help you with your needs.

Give us a call today and tell us your requirements – we are looking forward to hearing from you.
