Professional Building Contractors Near You

Welcome to the Axiom Construction Limited website. Based in the heart of Cambridgeshire, we deliver bespoke, high-quality builds in line with any vision. Whether we undertake building and maintenance work, house extensions, loft conversions or new builds, our company ethos remains consistent: quality comes as standard on every project. As a team of dedicated, experienced building contractors and new home builders, we offer the complete service package. This includes a full design-and-build service with planning control guidance.

Operating out of Barway, we cover surrounding locations in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk. Some of our key service areas include Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket, to name a few.

What We Do

House Extensions

In most cases, extending your home is less stressful and costly than moving to a larger house. Working together, we change the layout of your existing property to make it work better for you and your family. This means you can stay in your neighbourhood and community while enjoying a better quality of life.

Axiom Construction guides you through every step of your extension. From concept to completion, we cover all your needs, not just the physical build. Our building services includes design help, budget management and the planning permission application, if required.

New Builds

Axiom Construction provides a turnkey package for the building of new homes. Our new home builders work closely with you from the outset, as well as your preferred architect, if you have one, forming an experienced, well-informed team capable of moving your project forwards in a smooth and efficient manner.

From traditional styles to contemporary designs, we deliver properties of any type or size on time, within budget and to impeccable standards.

Carpentry and Joinery

Axiom Construction has a team of joiners working alongside our builders. Bespoke and carpentry services are the backbone of construction projects, covering everything from unseen structural elements to stylish finishing touches that define a design scheme.

Working on a bespoke basis, we craft pieces by hand in line with your specifications. Be it first- or second-fix carpentry, one-off or contracted work, storage, units, cabinetry or furniture – we do it all.

Loft Conversions

If you don’t have the available space to extend your home out into the garden, converting an underused, undervalued loft is the perfect solution. By creating a new room at the top of your home, you don’t need to make sacrifices in an already small or much-loved garden.

Our expert team excels in all loft conversion styles:: rooflight, dormer, hip-to-gable and mansard. Whether you want an extra bedroom or bathroom, home office, hobby room or home cinema, you can rely on us for a tailor-made conversion.

Garage Conversions

Much like lofts, many garages have become dark, musty storage spaces. If you don’t park your car in yours overnight, we can perform a bespoke conversion on a full or partial basis. The former provides a new habitable room of your choosing, while the latter leaves some storage space behind.

By optimising an existing structure, we unlock your property’s full potential. Garage conversions are especially popular as guest rooms, home offices, children’s playrooms and workshops.

Barn Conversions

The building contractors at Axiom Construction have the skillset and expertise to provide a specialist service for barn conversions. This process allows us to create unique homes and workplaces with all the original character and charm of the original building.

Our company designs barn conversions around your design aspirations and lifestyle requirements. We’re equally adept with the comfort and warmth of traditional styles, sleek, minimalist designs or a blend of the two. All our work fully complies with the latest UK Building Regulations.

Experienced Building Contractors

Our team shares decades of construction industry experience, including project management. We have an established network of suppliers and connections as well as a proven reputation for excellence.

Federation of Master Builders

Our company holds approval from the Federation of Master Builders, demonstrating the consistent quality of the projects we complete. Membership represents the gold standard for building work, and that’s exactly what we provide.

Fully Insured

Axiom Construction holds significant levels of all the necessary cover relating to our services, including public and employer’s liability insurance.

Complete Package

We cover all supplementary services surrounding the physical building work itself. Our company also assists with project management, budgeting, procurement, design, planning and more.
