The project finished on time and did not exceed the Budget. The process was painless for us, we were kept informed every step of the way, and consulted regularly about any changes. The building site was kept tidy, the team were very polite, respectful, jolly and efficient. The workmanship was top quality and we are delighted with the result.
New & Tilley have now undertaken 2 major renovations for us (1890s town house and 1860 stone Villa) plus a contemporary 8000 sq ft new build over the past 15 years. During all of those projects they have not only completed the projects to a very high standard and to budget but have also made a major contribution to the overall result. Always looking for cost effective options that don’t impact the end result they are pleasure to work with. Incredibly high standards down to the site at the end of each day being immaculate. Over the years we have recommended them many times and every time they have delivered.
We were awarded a Civic Award for the extensive renovation of Douro Villa as this previously run down villa was restored to it's former glory. The quality of the renovation was to the highest standard and the judges were most impressed by the quality of the stonework. It was described as a fine restoration of a Lansdown villa for 21st century living.
New and Tilley was founded by Paul New and Simon Tilley over 30 years ago after attending school and college together. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and high standards from traditonal craftmenship to embracing new technologies. During the 30 years we have worked together we have learnt a great deal and gained a lot of experience. It is because of our high standards of workmanship that we have been leading the building industry throughout Cheltenham and the surrounding areas.
We apply the same level of detail and commitment to all of our projects, whether a small extension to your home or a new build. We also specialise in the renovation of old properties, using our specialist craftsmen and working with our clients to source original materials.
The long-serving team of highly-skilled builders and craftsmen are key in consistently delivering quality projects. We also employ new apprentices each year to ensure there are quality craftsmen for the future.
Much of our work is through recommendation from clients that we have previously worked with. Take a look at what our clients have to say about us on the testimonials page.
We price a job on the basis of what it will cost to complete to a high standard and not what it takes to win the contract – the apparent cheapest often works out to be the most expensive. We would rather be transparent and realistic with our pricing so everyone knows where they are and all the energy goes into the end result.
