Eric and Matt , what a great team
Munna Patel
"Having had Eric and Matt create a wonderful garden studio in 2016, there was a slight leak in the roof which needed fixing. As ever, there was no issue with repairing the fault, free of charge, as it was still in warranty. Eric and his team renovated the whole house in 2009 and we are still amazed, as too are our family and friends , at the high level of finish! We having been using them ever since and have recommended them at every opportunity!"

1st floor and loft conversion
Marco Gerlinger
Eric and his team on site, which was led by Matt, simply did a fantastic job on our 1st floor and loft conversion which included some complex strutural alterations. They were efficient, reliable and every aspect of the conversion, from re-roofing over new floor level construction to finish and carpentry, was done to very high standards. Their experience with period house conversions also helped us and the architect to solve a few unexepcted structural problems which became apparant during the building works. I highly recommend OpenSpace!

Open Space project in Chiswick
Anthony Foot
Great project and excellent finish.  Matt and his team went above and beyond to get the job done to a high standard, and then came back a year later to pick up some minor issues without any charge.  Recommend highly.

Recommended for House Extension Work
David Noades
Open Space undertook a reasonably sized project for us about 18  months ago involving a dormer, juliet balcony, new central heating, new bathroom and re-designing two existing bathrooms.

They had a great team working for them (special mentions for Andrej and Matt) and the work was completed to a high standard with a good finish.

About a year after completion of the works we did spot a leak through the dormer roof, but Matt came back to us quickly and repaired a faulty rubber seal on the roof without any questions, thus validating their promised 5 year warranty.

Fantastic Service - going the extra mile
Simon Finch

We have just completed a series of works on our house in Chiswick and we could not be happier with the results. open Space have done a fantastic job from start to finish. They work extremely hard and nothing is too much trouble. Matt who was in charge of our job worked tirelessly to ensure everything met our expectations and when we made changes he was able to accommodate them easily within the programme. Since completing the kitchen extension, bathrooms and some chimney removals we have had them back to do the rear garden and front patio and path. I highly recommend Matt and Open Space.

Great results
Catherine Foot
Open Space Ltd did a fantastic job extending our house and replacing a bathroom. They were extremely reliable, very hard working, finished to time and we're delighted with the quality of the finished work. The team also provided great expertise and guidance throughout to help us finalise our ideas.

Just thought I would say that we are really delighted with the kitchen extension and all of Eric's work. Searching for a builder I got his contact from this website and his good references helped me to decided and now I can honestly recommend Open Space to others looking for a local company.

Please relay on Eric's complex knowledge regarding run of the project. His experience has saved us lots of hassle and money and we appreciate it. 

It's been a year now and everything still looks nice and fresh. 
Thank you Eric, Elizabeth and the whole team.

Most impressed with this Company's work.  The quality of workmanship was of a very high quality, with Andrej and Mat were very skillful tradesmen.  We found them reliable and very accurate in relation to time estimate for the work. We were told 8 - 10 weeks and they completed in 9.  The team were always punctual in the morning, working until 6 p.m., usually 6 days a week but were aware of the need to be quiet Saturday afternoons. They were conscious of the disruption the work was causing us, particularly as we remained living at the property during the works and went an extra mile to try and reduce the adverse effects of the work.  The team were professional and very friendly, with a good sense of humour.  Eric kept tight control of the project, consulting daily on our wishes.  He was supported by Elizabeth in the office, who attended very efficiently with the administration aspects.  We would highly recommend this company.  We are now thoroughly enjoying the benefits of their hard and skillful work.

Superb craftsmen, brilliant results
Judy McGuire

Eric and his team have just finished our kitchen and side return extension and we could not be more delighted with it and with them. 

They were on time, on budget and worked 10 hour days, six days a week to make sure every detail was finished to perfection. Though we lived on site throughout, the team did their upmost to disrupt our lives as little as possible, and genuinely were a pleasure to have around!

There was no question of them disappearing on other jobs, Eric was always available, they were cheerful, friendly, tidy, helpful and supremely professional.

They were brilliant at problem solving, and were prepared to go over and above the original brief without complaint. They weren't the cheapest, but I chose them because their quote was itemised down to the smallest detail, and they stuck to it, so there were never any unpleasant cost surprises. 

They returned as promised to fix small snagging details and I know that if anything else shows up they won't hesitate to come and adjust.  

I've already recommended them to other neighbours and friends (usually a risk, but not this time, I'm certain) and urge you to go with Open Space, They are simply the best I've ever come across in a long life of home improvements.

Such brilliant work - a great team.
Liam Foley
Eric and his wonderful team - Elizabeth in the office keeping track of everything, and Andrzej, Mat and various other specialist crew on site - have made our recent building work hassle-free from start to finish.

We were lucky enough to have a kitchenette in our attic whilst our kitchen extension and downstairs loo were built, which meant that we didn't have to move out. Eric's team made sure things stayed on track, on schedule, and as smooth as possible. Incredibly hard-working - on site 6 days a week - the quality of craftsmanship is superb. A great attention to detail and no corners cut.

Very good communication throughout the project, which was very reassuring.

We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Open Space and hope to use them again in the future.

We recently employed Openspace to open up and remodel our existing side extension, connecting the kitchen and conservatory into one connected space.  The work involved demolishing structural walls and inserting box-frame steelwork, creating a new solid floor with under floor heating throughout, new boiler and electrics, floor tiling and decoration.  Eric's team began on time and worked hard six days a week throughout the 8-week period needed to complete the job.  We were able to remain in the house during the project using temporary kitchen facilities that OS created in our conservatory.  We are very pleased with the results and would be happy to recommend OS to anyone considering a project of this type.

Eric and his team at Openspace have recently completed a loft conversion and also undertaken some additonal jobs at the same time - rewiring, moving the boiler and some works in the kitchen. The work is fantastic and we could not be more pleased with the finished result - I would thoroughly recommend Openspace.
We needed to live in our house whilst the works were being completed and the Openspace team did their utmost to work around us and cause the least disruption. At the end of every day doing a thorough clean up and always letting us know in advance if they needed to work late or on a weekend.
At every point where a decision was needed Eric was helpful and always available to give advice - he also helped project manage some additional work carried out at the same time. I would not hesitate to recommend Openspace or use them again for future works.

Great Service
Stephen Valentine
We used Openspace to totally gut and rebuild our kitchen, including all foundations and exterior walls,restyle the ground floor of our house, and put in a new bathroom. Our work was done to a very high standard and we are delighted with the results. Eric and team worked tirelessly on our project and navigated us well through delays created by Building Control's demands for far deeper foundations than was expected.We felt that our builders were definitely on our side and gave us solid advice. We had continuity from the core team throughout the project and they worked tirelessly but did not compromise standards.
As we lived in the house through the build, we all had to get on. The Openspace team were friendly, punctual and considerate, they always left the site neat and tidy and helped us cope with the inevitable dust. We would certainly recommend the team and use them again.

Repeated delays then disappointment
Nisha Jani
We've just been badly let down by Openspace despite having booked and paid a deposit for a job supposed to start this week (Nov) - instead on the Friday before the job was supposed to begin, they called to say they would not be able to start until March! This is the second time we have been delayed by them but I'm afraid we were unable to wait around for them again to sort out their work flow and are forced to start the whole process again. A shame as I wanted them to do the work and it was supposed to be done before Xmas. They allowed us to buy bathroom and tiles etc and surely knew there was a problem before we knew about it. Feel they should not have taken the job on. Needless to say when we checked the T&Cs, there was a clause about start dates not being binding but you imagine that if you've paid a deposit that that consitutes a contract. They have promptly refunded the money and I'm glad they did not start the job and leave it half done but I could have done without this stress and delay. Beware!

The best and the friendliest
Charles Kingsmill
Eric and the OpenSpace team took on a big project for us - enlarging the kitchen along the side return, knocking through to the rest of the ground floor, building a new soundproofed wall, installing the new kitchen, plus a new bathroom upstairs... They were fast, efficient and very keen to do a great job. And they were friendly throughout. Projects like that are pretty stressful but Eric kept us calm despite it all.  Very strongly recommended.

Debbie Lawson
We contracted Eric and his team at Open Space to demolish an existing conservatory and replace it with an extension. It was a big job that could have, potentially, been very disruptive to family life but Eric ensured we were able to carry on with day to day life as much as possible. His team are courteous, hard-working and true craftsmen. The personal attention we received from Eric was amazing. He was always available to take a call or to come round at short notice if we had any questions. We never felt that he was an 'absent boss' who only showed up occasionally. The initial quotation we received was so easy to understand and outlined every step of the process. There were no nasty surprises or 'hidden costs' that are so often added by other builders. The finished extension is of a very high standard, no corners were cut and 18 months on we are still delighted with the work. I would not hesitate to use Open Space again.

First class work.
Richard Tindall
We have commissioned Eric, his very experienced and hard working team on a number of very successful projects. 200 sq ft extension which involved re levelling floors fitting large RSJs bespoke doors, fitted kitchen, multi light functioning and decorating through out. complete re fit of bathroom including tiling through out new, flooring and lighting. Lounge, bespoke cupboards and bookshelves, lighting and wooden floors throughout the ground floor. Renovation, painting and wood work at the front and rear of the house, and decking with lighting at the rear. The quality of this work has always been of the highest standard. The quoting has always been accurate with no extra charges and the finish date realistic always met. The team are always there on time, polite, hard working and the site left tidy at the end of the day. I cannot recommend Eric and his team highly enough, and like James O'Brien would not contemplate using anyone else. I would be very happy to talk to anyone who might be considering using him, you can get my number from him.$0$0$0$0Richard and Alison Tindall$0

The Best Builders in West London
James OBrien
I really cannot recommend Open Space and Eric, the boss, highly enough. They undertook a big job for us - side return, extension, new loo under stairs, complete refurbishment of half the ground floor et al. - and delivered a quality of service and finish that defied even our loftiest expectations.$0Despite the scale of the work, they strived to keep disruption to the rest of the house to a minimum, reacted with unswerving enthusiasm to any changes to plans and/or specifications and, in contrast to other builders we've employed, were keen to ensure that we were happy as opposed to merely satisfied.$0$0Indeed, such was the quality and speed of their work that next door-but-one hired them within months to undertake an almost identical job. We are getting the loft done next year and wouldn't contemplate using anyone else.$0$0James O'Brien (Presenter, LBC 97.3)$0
