What Our Customers Say...

I would like to thank you for all the support you give to the group.

Carlisle Riding for Disabled Association

We would like to pass on our thanks to all the builders who were involved in creating our new workshop. We were very impressed by their punctuality in getting the job done efficiently but also safely. Any queries we had were answered immediately in a straight forward manner. The electrician had also commented how good the duct was & how it was the best one he had ever seen.

Environment Agency

"Everyone that sees the finished article comments on how wonderful it is. The lads should be truly proud of what they have created, and I would be very pleased for you to pass those comments and our thoughts onto them".


It's official. We've completed!. Thank you so much for all your hard work and patience. Thank you also for our flowers, treats and card.

Calvert Way

All of the trades that attended were excellent, from Tom and his building crew who did a splendid job of what was not a very pleasant task of knocking out brickwork. Dan has created a superb deck for us which looks great and has been used already, and Marcus who has finished off the job with a tidy finish of the plastering.


My inspection showed this to be a good well run site at the time of my visit. Your supervisor's helpful manner and co-operation were appreciated.

HSE Inspector - Crossthwaite Gardens Keswick

I would just like to pass on my thanks to a couple of the lads….. going above and beyond.... we are certainly very grateful - they are a top bunch and a credit to the company!


I just wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you again for your support of Anthony Nolan last year.  The fundraising Atkinson Building Contractors did was fantastic and has been a huge help towards our goal of saving and improving the lives of people with blood cancer.

Anthony Nolan Events Coordinator

As always Nick was courteous, considerate, efficient and thorough; he is certainly a great advertisement for your company.


the guys have been superb in really demanding conditions ... they've turned up and made progress ... we're really pleased.


the staff were helpful and very hardworking and good to have about the house


A very big thank you on our behalf, to all of the Atkinson team who have been working on our house at Keswick;

….their productive and efficient work made a very good first impression;

….we’d like to say thank you for their efforts;

…..your “team” have provided helpful and constructive ideas and have again produced quality results;

….the electricians have made a great job of the first fix electrics and we appreciate their enthusiasm and helpfulness;

….the plumbers (mainly Ian) have created an amazing boiler room on the second floor and there are a myriad of neatly labelled pipes going all over the house. We are very pleased with his work.

...the bricklayers have made a great job of reconstructing the chimneys and Atkinsons guys have also been involved in works to the roof, tidying up and coordination of the roofing work.

We’d like to make a special mention of Alan Wills who is outstanding, and on whom the success of the whole project depends. Our decision to use Atkinsons was mainly because we were promised that he would be our site manager. We had already seen how excellent he is on our earlier flood repair project and we appreciate work that is done well.

A special mention also goes to Tony Ripley as he has been extremely helpful, courteous and amazingly efficient. Having someone who always responds immediately to queries and concerns seems to be a rare asset in the building industry and it has made it much easier for us.

Janet Ruffley has come up trumps with the planning application. We appreciate what that involves as we have had to do this ourselves in the past.

There are others, for example, Martin and Kayleigh, and probably more, working in the background who have also contributed and we like to thank them too.

All of your staff are committed, friendly and helpful as well as being competent and knowledgeable. So they are a pleasure to work with.

And finally thank you Barry for responding to us helpfully and promptly in the first place and keeping us informed of your developments in Keswick
