“We recently worked with Datum Point Construction transforming a beautiful Victorian house back to its former glory in preparation for resale. We all worked collaboratively ensuring that the finished product not only looked aesthetically pleasing and took advantage of the space and light but also offered something unique.

All the fixtures and fittings were perfectly constructed down to the smallest detail with excellent craftsmanship. All parties brought their own experience to the project for a stunning end result.”

Director – Minnie & Grouse Interiors
“RDA Architects have worked together with Datum Point Construction on the ambitious Magnolia House project to add to and totally transform an ordinary house into an extraordinary house to match the client’s unique requirements.

The challenge was to fit the client’s flamboyant style into an ordinary house that had already had numerous adaptations and additions.

The existing shell, as work went on, was discovered to fall significantly short of acceptable standards. This presented complications that were admirably dealt with by Datum Point Construction including being proactive at finding and agreeing solutions and the prompt execution of those solutions to successful outcomes for the client.

I have found the team at Datum Point Construction knowledgeable, reliable, helpful, able and good at collaborative problem solving and therefore have no hesitation in recommending them for similar work.”

Craig Dobson

Director – RDA Architects
“Working closely with Datum Point Construction on the project at 41 Market Hill, Royston has proven to be a very professional and enjoyable experience.

No project is without its challenges and I was very impressed with how Datum Point Construction dealt with these with ease and reassurance. I visited the property a few times as the works progressed and felt very confident in the guys that were working on site.

I recently returned to the property to view the finished article and was very pleased with the quality of workmanship. The client's, David and Charlie, were also very happy with how the project had gone which is always nice to hear.

I would happily recommend Datum Point Construction to my future clients.”

Chris Low

Director – CPL Architectural Design Ltd
“I have worked with Datum Point Construction on a number of projects over the past two years and am consistently impressed by how professional they are in dealing with the intricacies of each unique design and build project.

Their valuable input has positively influenced architectural and design decisions, and every client we’ve worked with has been notably impressed by their conduct and of course, the high quality outcome.”

Clifford Turnbull

Director – Turn2 Ltd
“Until working with Datum Point Construction we’d never really spent too much time discussing design with a building company – it was something that builders we’d previously worked with were happy to just leave with us.

But Datum Point Construction were keen to be involved and brought very valued opinions and building knowledge to the table.

I can honestly say that the team of Directors were a pleasure to work with and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other professionals in the industry.”

Reviews from Homeowners & Commercial Clients


“I employed Datum Point Construction to build a single storey kitchen extension at my property in Holwell Road and the end result is more than I could have hoped for. Throughout, the team were very polite, tidy and hard working. It was great to find a construction company that have their own in house joinery team as this meant I didn’t have to find someone else to manufacture and fit my kitchen. Overall, a great experience with Datum Point. Thank you for bringing my vision to life and exceeding my expectations! I would highly recommend.”

Single storey kitchen extension
"The project took 4 months and we couldn’t be more delighted with the end result. From the outset, it was clear that Datum Point were a professional operation. We chose them above cheaper builders because we felt we could trust them to deliver the project to a high standard and meet our programme dates.

It was clear that Paul, Nik, Greg and the greater Datum Point team took personal pride in their work and are driven to deliver the best possible result for their clients. In summary, they care.

They went the extra mile for us on numerous occasions – sometimes working late and on weekends to ensure things kept on track. If something wasn’t right – they would more often than not call it out before we did – and make it good. They even offered alternative solutions from a design and material stand-point that added value, often positively affecting the bottom-line.

Datum Point have office-based staff which meant that there was always someone available to speak to who knew about the project. We never felt unable get hold of anyone during or out-of-hours, and our calls and emails were always met with prompt responses.

Datum Point also worked really well with the 3rd parties we hired (architect, structural engineers, building control, kitchen fitters), all of whom have had positive things to say about Datum Point.

It can be really stressful having your house turned upside down and sharing it with strangers. While we had challenges to work through at times with Datum Point like any build, overall the team were a pleasure to have around – conscientious, supportive, courteous and fun – we almost miss them!

We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Datum Point again, or recommend them to any of our friends. They can be trusted to deliver."

Kitchen extension and interior remodel including two bathroom refurbs
“Datum Point started when they agreed, charged us what they agreed, finished when they agreed and were incredibly helpful when we changed some of the spec. They were a great team to work with and we are very happy with the finished building.”

Community project – Wigginton

Construction of new shop and cafe including foundations and most of the fit out.
“Datum Point were great from start to finish. I had a vision of how I wanted my property to look when it was completed and throughout the project, regular meetings with Paul Adams, who managed the project, meant that my vision was created beyond my expectations. Not only did they carry out the works to a high standard, the design input and creative eye of Paul was second to none. Being an old property and squeezing in extra bedrooms and bathrooms, there were always going to challenges along the way but these were dealt with brilliantly and my vision was never compromised.”

Full refurbishment of a Victorian property including a single storey extension, loft extension and landscaping
“I appointed Datum Point Construction to undertake the demolition of my existing garage, building of a new kitchen extension and fitting of a new kitchen. The team were so helpful in working with me to finalise design and build a programme to suit my budget. The workers were all really lovely, hardworking and reliable. They left my home tidy despite it being messy work and I was amazed to see how quickly the extension went up. I would absolutely recommend Datum Point to anyone looking for a trusted local builder. They're great guys.”

Homeowner – Albury, Ware

Kitchen extension and fit out
“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.”

Homeowner – Ware

Single storey extension and internal reconfiguration
“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.”

New bathroom refurbishment
“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.”
