When it comes to the success of projects like property refurbishments, shop fit outs, groundwork installations and extensions, choosing the right construction company remains key. With the ideal balance of affordability, reliability and superior workmanship, you drastically reduce the chances of encountering problems with your project while still ensuring results of the highest quality. As a time-serve building company, UK Maintenance & Construction provides a complete service package for our clients in the Southampton area, including services as shop fitters and groundworks contractors.


We recognise how difficult it is to choose a construction company for your project, so we strive to set ourselves apart from the very first point of contact. Below, we have taken a closer look at some of the key points to consider when it comes to choosing the right building company, shop fitters or groundworks contractors for your project.



Ask for References – If you have narrowed down various companies to a shortlist, ask for references from their previous clients. Any reputable construction company will happily comply with your request as these first-hand accounts usually verify their claims. Whether you want to hire us as a building company, as groundworks contractors or as shop fitters, UK Maintenance & Construction provides references upon request at initial consultations.


View a Portfolio – Building projects represent highly specific undertakings, so it’s vital your construction company, groundworks contractors or shop fitters can actually do what you want them to do. For example, if you need a property refurbishment, you need to see photographic evidence of previous property refurbishments for peace of mind. As with references, we happily provide a portfolio of completed work for clients in Southampton during the consultation stage.

Evident Interest – While you may ask a prospective building company many questions, a reputable contractor will ask just as many in return before committing themselves to any project. Property refurbishments, shop fit outs and general building work represent their livelihood, so they want to get a clear understanding of your proposed work. It’s vital for them to know if it’s something within their skillset, otherwise they risk wasting time and damaging their reputation.


Clear Communication – The ability to prioritise communication is often innate and can be clearly ascertained from the outset. Good communication includes concise, clear answers about proposed projects in Southampton, not long-winded or vague responses with a lack of detail. This should then continue to manifest itself in multiple ways as your working relationship progresses. For example, when it comes to a quotation for property refurbishments, shop fit outs, groundworks or any other service, a reputable construction company provides detail, particularly in regard to how they plan to spend your money.


From groundworks contractors to shop fitters, UK Maintenance & Construction takes pride in the quality of the service we provide from start to finish. For commercial construction work of any kind in the Southampton area, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
