I’m Nico, a builder, carpenter and decorator, and I’ve been working mainly on residential properties in the Islington area for the past 15 years. With my team of trusted workmates, we can take on any job, delivering a perfect result at a reasonable price.

Nowadays, as a consequence of our ever-growing reputation, we typically tend to be commissioned for larger projects. Extensions have become an important speciality for us – and we do all types, from wood structure to brick and beam, one or two storeys. However, we’re still happy to tackle much smaller tasks, especially for our many returning customers.

Please browse through this website to learn a little more about the range of work we carry out – including all kinds of building projects, together with interior and exterior decorating to the highest standard – and to read a few comments from our satisfied customers. You can also view a selection of photos of our work.

What our clients say

“The main thing about Nico that separates him from many builders is just how conscientious he is, he never cuts corners, can’t stand sub-standard or imperfect work and is very respectful of budget.”

James Anderson London, N4

“He produces work of a high standard and makes sensible, practical recommendations when appropriate, including cost conscious solutions. He has become part of the firmament of Highbury.”

Barry London, N5

“The finished product is far better than we could have imagined, and his quote was incredibly competitive. Little wonder he’s become Islington’s builder of choice.”

Will Anderson London, N1

“We have used Nico and his team for many years now, and have always been pleased with their work. He is very reliable, his men work hard and are pleasant to have around.”

Vanni Treves London, N1

“At the end of the initial project, we were so pleased with Nico’s work that we immediately asked him to take on additional work – and we would definitely use him again.”
