Englefield Building Contractors was founded in 1978 by Steve Gray and his father William ‘Len’ Gray. Based in Englefield Green, Surrey they provided building services for local residents and built up a reputation for their consistent quality and workmanship.
The company is now owned and run by Steve and his two sons, Tom and Ben who oversee every job undertaken. Together they have managed to expand the business with a team of permanent employees covering areas within Surrey and Berkshire including Englefield Green, Egham, Staines, Virginia Water and Windsor but ensuring they continue to provide the same service the company was built on.
Customer satisfaction is our main priority and many of our existing clients are repeat customers with whom we have established a close working relationship built up over many years by providing an honest, reliable and efficient service. We have built up a good relationship with local architects, interior designers, and building inspectors and were a finalist for the 2015 LABC ‘Best Local Builder’ Award, nominated for by Runnymede Borough Council. Englefield Building Contractors is also SAFE Contractor accredited.
