Whitehall Construction has the expertise and experience to take any building project from design to completion
‘I’m hands-on – that’s how I work. I’m on site every day and I always like to be a point of contact for clients.’ Jason Wilkinson, Build Director of Whitehall Construction, is explaining his business philosophy – and the passion is shining through.
‘I think my approach stems from the fact that I started at the bottom of the trade as an apprentice bricklayer and worked my way up,’ Jason continues. ‘I’ve learned how important it is to be available – there’s no better way to create a positive relationship and find solutions to issues.’ Jason co-founded Whitehall Construction three years ago and, since then, it has grown rapidly through word-ofmouth recommendation.
Focusing on the West London area, the company specialises in whole house renovation, loft conversion, kitchen and side return extension, basement excavation and bathroom re-design.
‘We have the knowledge to take any job from Planning and Design through to Build,’ Jason tells me. ‘We’re used to liaising with architects and structural engineers and, when it comes to construction, we have a permanent team of high quality, reliable craftsmen.’ He is convinced that clear project management is the key to every successful build. ‘It’s crucial to explain the process – why something will work and why it won’t.
‘It’s all about being open and honest. In my opinion many builders today have become more like salesmen. They get jobs in and then farm them out. So you lose that line of communication and individual contact.’
Jason is equally emphatic about pricing and delivery. ’I always give a realistic quote – not a deliberately cheap price to secure a contract – and our fees are fixed from the beginning, so there are no nasty surprises. Also, we deliver what we promise and on time. I like to think that 30 years’ experience enables me to anticipate most problems and come up with practical answers.’
With many satisfied clients, Jason encourages potential clients to check out his previous work. ‘We’re proud of what we do,’ he says. ‘Whatever the project, we stick to what we say, we don’t cut corners and craftsmanship means everything to us.’
