Here are some examples of recent projects we have completed or are in progress in and around the Cambridge area.


This is also the second time we have used Neil and his team to complete major building work on our family home. We cannot rate Neil more highly and would highly recommending him to anyone considering having building work done. We have found Neil over the past 15 years to be a very knowledgeable, experienced and organised builder.

Throughout the entire process of our recent build in 2021, from our initial meeting with Neil to his regular building updates, to his ongoing liaison with a vast team of structural engineers, designers, building materials, window and kitchen suppliers, Neil is an excellent communicator which provided us with much reassurance.

Neil’s team did an amazing job building our kitchen extension in the height of winter throughout challenging Covid times in early 2021. Not only did the project run to both time and budget, but the quality of building work is excellent. Having built a brilliant temporary wall throughout the construction period, Neil’s team also kept our house, the yard and the building site itself neat, tidy and safe at all times. Since completing the building work, Neil and his team have also offered excellent ongoing advice and support.

We hope to have Neil back a third time at some point in the next few years for our final building project, before he retires!

Katie Morrish, Kitchen Extension & Utility

Even though my house was being turned upside down Neil, and his crew, were never other than a delight to have working on my house. The workmanship was good, they delivered on time and to budget and were unfailingly cheerful even in the depths of a cold winter. If you are thinking of building work, and are looking for a builder to do it I would recommend that you talk to Neil.

Nicola, Complete House Renovation Project

We are very pleased with the work done in our house by Neil Durning Construction and we highly recommend them. Neil and his team battled through a nasty winter to deliver a beautiful kitchen and lounge extension on time, within budget and exceeding our expectations. From quality of materials through to finishing details, we recommend them without any reservations.

Mr & Mrs Garces, Lounge & Kitchen Extension

We were absolutely delighted with the quality of work, pricing, advice with planning, friendly, tidy and reliable tradesmen – an excellent extension/renovation job.

Sarah, House Extension & Renovation

Having considered an extension to our home I was extremely pleased that we secured N Durning construction for this project. Their competitiveness in terms of pricing, the high quality of their work and the delivery of the finished product, on time and to budget is testimony to the skill and expertise of his team.

Declan & Claire, House Extension

This is the second extension we have had built by Neil Durning and on both occasions we have found Neil to give a good job. He is willing to listen and will give his professional opinion throughout the build. He and his team are diligent workers such that the neighbours commented on the general site tidiness. We would happily recommend Neil to anyone wishing to undertake a building project.

David & Margaret Ford, House Extension

The loft became the best room of our house; it was light, spacious and versatile. The work was professionally managed and finished to an excellent standard with great care.

Bettina & Ian, Loft Conversion

Neil Durning Construction converted two lofts for us over the past 12 years. The first one was a Victorian terrace in Romsey. Neil was recommended to us by a friend, and we immediately recommended him to a neighbour: it made a light and airy room with good storage, which when we came to sell the house we felt was a real asset. The second – our current ’30s semi in Queen Edith’s, in 2010 – was on a bigger scale and included a dormer and a shower room, once again, one of the nicest rooms in the house. On both occasions we employed Neil we found him to be very reliable, conscientious, helpful and honest. We would certainly employ and recommend him again.

Marion & Alessandro Arcangeli, Loft Conversion

Deciding on who to build our new extension was nerve racking. So when a friend recommended Neil Durning Construction we were some what relieved. From initial consultation to completion it was an excellent experience. The extension started on time, kept on budget, completed on time and we were really pleased with the quality of workmanship. We have since recommended Neil and his team and wouldn’t hesitate to have them build for us again.
