Welcome to the first edition of our new blog

Hello, and welcome to the first edition of our new blog, another milestone achieved! Next on our agenda is to work on the final touches to becoming a Construction line approved contractor which will sit nicely next to our Chas accreditation.

At Excel we are striving every day to surpass our clients’ who have total confidence in our ability to perform across the board. And while that is fantastic, we are determined to ensure we are constantly driving standards up by having excellent health and safety and training measures in place along with a competent workforce.

This year so far has been the most exciting of my career in construction to date which spans over 19 years and has now taken me to being at the helm of Excel and with a strong passionate like-minded team the sky is the limit! We are currently undertaking the most exciting projects ranging from architectural master pieces such as Minafon, Elephant & Castle and Forest Hill; through to government backed projects like the Balcony Walkway Project.


Minafon is a luxury seven bedroom mansion with an indoor swimming pool. A real contemporary stunner and we have been contracted to oversee all groundworks ranging from the demolition of existing building, site set up, parking area for contractors, foundations, holding down bolts, reinforced concrete shell to pool area, drainage, rain water harvester, foul water connection, ground bearing concrete slab and geo thermal heating pipes.

Elephant and Castle

Elephant and Castle once a public house with a vast garden area, is now being transformed into four luxury homes. We have the privilege of undertaking the full groundworks and the brickwork package on this contract which is now nearing completion and it looks fantastic with its old English bond brickwork to the houses and garden walls. The access to the houses will be finished off with a resin bonded permeable tarmac to create a beautiful natural stone finish accompanied with flagstone slabs to make it look great alongside the pub itself. This pub is a stunning listed building undergoing a transformation inside but still retaining its period charm from the outside.


Forest Hill

Forest Hill, another exciting project! An imposing somewhat behemoth country mansion where we are working tirelessly to deliver a very detailed package where our finesse and craftsmanship comes into its own.

Southampton Balconies

And last but not least, the Southampton Balconies project! We are working on the rejuvenation of balcony walkways throughout Southampton's OAP residential blocks and have been tasked with undertaking the groundworks in a live environment that requires a company that can evolve to an ever changing work place while ensuring everyone's safety; winning the hearts and minds of residents, and adhering to a program of works while maintaining minimum disturbance.
