"We used Datum Point Construction to build our single storey kitchen/shower room/unity room with a vaulted ceiling and roof lights. From the very start of the project we liked that Paul and his business partners all visited site together and discussed our options. We were able to discuss ideas that we had and suggestions they had, nothing seemed too much trouble. Datum Point seemed to have a man to do anything and everything!! All work was carried out with care and precision and everyone that worked on our house extension were some of the nicest people we have met. We would not hesitate to recommend Datum Point Construction."

"I have been wanting an extension on the rear of my property for a long time but never found the right people. Datum Point have been professional and hard working from start to finish. The high level of care and quality of work produced by the team was outstanding, I'm extremely happy with the work carried out and cant thank them enough. A friendly bunch of lads who I will be recommending to all my family and friends. I strongly recommend the services that they have to offer - BEST construction firm around."

- Marion Wilkinson

“I have been hugely impressed by the work carried out at my home and it's clear to see that the dedication and attention to detail applied by each Datum Point Construction Ltd contractor working at my house has paid dividends. The end result is incredible and my refurbished house is everything I could have asked for. Throughout the refurbish all workers were clean, tidy and very polite. They were considerate of the fact that this was my home and made sure that everything was as clean as possible at the end of each working day. I'd recommend these guys for a high standard of work and an impeccable work ethic.”

- Daniel Jones

“Really pleased with the work carried out, they handled the issues that arose (including issues that were not due to anything they had done) quickly and efficiently. Work was done to a high standard, very approachable and happy to come back to make sure any snagging is dealt with. Would recommend them.”

- Sarah Wimlett

“From the very start of the project we liked that Paul and his business partners all visited site together and discussed our options. The kitchen extension was to include a utility room and cloakroom/shower. As things progressed we were in consultation with Paul, Greg and Nik about fitting out the kitchen, utility and cloakroom/shower. We discussed kitchen units, paint colours, tiles for the floor and tiles for the walls! Datum Point seemed to have a man to do anything and everything! The building work was carried out with care and precision we would not hesitate in recommending them.”

- Adam Chennells

“They refurbished one of the bathrooms in my house. The end result was better than I expected, they were really organised and kept the place really tidy, while being friendly at the same time. Would definitely recommend.”
