In a nutshell, Marius and his team are great. They're kind, respectful and Marius is always available to answer every question you have - he def is the most knowledgeable builder I've spoken to. You get a very transparent estimate and sign a contract, for both parties' peace of mind. If extras come up, Marius openly discuss them with you before taking any action - my job required quite a few and Marius was also great to stay competitive price-wise whilst keeping the quality of the work sky-high.

Looking for a team of hardworking, reliable, and talented builders? My wife and I highly recommend Progressive Design. We renovated an 1890s Victorian semi-detached house in St. Albans. The property was in need of total refurbishment, with no proper bathroom, no modern kitchen and limited electrics. They work hard, are smart and respectful, and very talented. This is a family of builders who take pride in their work, do the right thing, and strive to help you accomplish your vision. Highly recommended.

I found Marius and his team industrious, highly professional, and a joy to work with. I am an interior designer so the tradesmen I use must work to a very high standard, which they did. They were punctual, considerate and took good care of the owner's belongings. They dealt with unexpected problems with good humour determination and ingenuity. The job had to be completed within six weeks - a big ask - and by working long hours they managed to deliver the job on time and within budget. Highly recommended.

Marius and his fantastic team of builders could not have done a better job on our single story extension. They were professional, punctual, polite and highly skilled in all areas of their work. All our friends and neighbours were amazed at how fast and efficient they were in completing our new kitchen/dining room. They went above and beyond what was expected to make the build a success. I have recommended them to everyone I know who is thinking of having building work done.

Our project was a kitchen extension, which included creating a downstairs WC. We met with Marius to discuss every single stage of the project. We had weekly meetings to discuss the progress of each stage. This helped us to understand everything about what we needed doing. It was really useful to have a detailed itemised quote right from the beginning till the end. Marius did not change any pricing on the quotation unless if we added extra work to be done. This helped us to know how far our budget would go. There were therefore no surprises in terms of paying our bills towards the project. The project was completed well before the estimated time- this was really good . Our neighbours who both have had extensions done wished they had known about Marius at the time they employed other builders who left them in a lot of mess financially and also they did not get the excellent finish we got with Marius. Marius’ team works professionally. They arrived each day at 8 o’clock or earlier. Again this is unlike other builders I have heard about. Before the project started I was worried about mud and dust round the house, but this was not a problem at all throughout the project. Each evening the guys tidied up before they left for the day. Throughout the project there was clear communication with Marius on what was happening. His advise on the choice of products was outstanding. This was important for us because we do not know much about building. Marius understood our budget right from the start so he helped us to get products from companies with competitive prices. His knowledge and advise on products was invaluable. When people come round to our house they always comment on the quality of work and finishing touches, which were put into our extension. We are so proud of our house now so we haven’t stopped having people round since it was completed. Before we started the project we interviewed a few builders and at one point we got really confused as to whom to go with. At this time we also watched a few series of Cow Boy builders – this was not very helpful because it made us even more scared to start the project. After interviewing Marius we were confident he understood our project. He explained clearly how the project would run. He patiently answered all our questions. At one point I thought we were going to annoy him with all the questions. He was happy to answer any questions and restore our confidence in getting the project started. We found that other builders we had interviewed before were not very patient with answering questions and seemed to be very abrupt. If we had money now we would get all the other planned projects done eg loft conversion, rebuilding the garage etc. We are already saving to get these done with Marius because we believe we will not be able to find a good builder who is professional and respectful of people and their property. We have already recommended Marius to our friends and family.

Bathroom fitter

Extra work carried out in addition to the above: New double glazed window fitted. Removed coving and skimmed walls and ceiling. Installed extractor fan and moved switch. Installed new door. Fitted infra red and auto demist mirror. Under floor heating. Progress Design didn't came with the cheapest quote but price matched my second cheapest, as promised. Maruis, the boss was great all the way through. He had helped me to find various tiles and supplied me with a bathroom supplier which enabled me to choose the best products at good price. I ended up with a lot more features putting in my bathroom. i. e. An infra red light up and auto demist mirror and a heated floor. They had worked hard trying to met my dead line (they worked until 10pm one night) as I was having friends coming over from Hong Kong to stay in my place in 10 days time. They promised me they would complete the project in 9 days time but finished in 11 days which was fair enough. They had kept the place reasonably clean but had they cleaned all the wall tiles and floor tiles and vacuum the carpet in the hall way properly and to leave me the new window keys I would have awarded them 5 stars. Overall it was a great job they had done and I would recommend them to anyone.

Plasterer / Renderer

This is exactly how one would expect professional and skilled tradesmen to be!. Not only did they provide a full written quote upfront that was detailed, they also provided a signed contract to protect both parties and 3 references. The job was effectively project managed from start to finish and queries throughout followed up to the customers requirements. Our job was bigger than the original brief and the tradesmen were highly skilled, respectful, friendly, reliable and efficient. The job was completed to a very high standard and we are exceptionally pleased with the results. We would certainly use Progressive Design for future work and recommend them to others.

Maurius and his team have been very good. I was apprehensive instructing builders from this site, but I need not worry as Progressive Design have been very professional and prompt. I recommend using them. If further reference is needed, I am happy to provide same for them.

A job well done. Having met Marius and his team 6 weeks back, we are pleased to say the work he has done for us refurbishing out two bedroom flat has exceeded our expectations. A great attitude, honesty and hardworking, his team don't wait around instead get the job done as quickly as possible. I particularly appreciate the effort he took in making a large bathtub fit in my miniscule bathroom when most builders refused to even try. They have been reliable, organized and accommodating to our preferences and saved us alot of time and money by picking up things for us and collecting our deliveries on site. We would definitely recommend them to anyone. Gavin & Tanielle, West Kensington Court.

I was continually impressed by them. They undertook the mammoth task of renovating our entire house, from rewiring, knocking down supporting walls, fitting flooring, replastering, converting a loft, fitting patio doors, desiging and fitting a new kitchen, installing new radiators, there's not enough room here to write what they did but they turned our house into a palace. (Ok a mini palace it's a 3 bed semi in North London, but you get the picture) They finished on time, were extremely reliable, never said no to anything and had heaps of patience. Of course there were hiccups along the way with such a huge task but they always had a solution and it always worked out . I can not recommend them highly enough

Tommy has a very diligent and reliable team here. He was able to work towards a very tight schedule, to plan ahead and to use his resources efficiently. He and his team delivered my project on time even though they had to work very hard in the last couple of days (12-13 hours non-stop each day including the last weekend which was pretty impressive). Quality wise I guess they could focus a bit more on the detail but they were able to do all the touch-ups with a little prompt. Overall satisfied with their work and would definitely consider using them again!
