“When our 150 year old, listed garden wall suddenly collapsed due to tree roots undermining the minimal foundations, Martin’s team worked diligently to rebuild it, liaising with the heritage officer from Wychavon to ensure the new wall was constructed to incorporate modern techniques whilst preserving the original character. We were delighted with the final result, the team were accommodating and flexible and the craftsmanship of the bricklaying first class.”
“We wouldn’t hesitate to use Martin Bruno again.”
“We are delighted with the build quality and workmanship that Martin and his team have provided for our dining room extension. We chose Martin because he was able to give us a very detailed breakdown of the costs involved and also his consideration of the impact of the building work on our neighbours.
Martin is very personable, reliable, informative and easy to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”
Rose and Huw, Droitwich
Thank you very much for restoring our faith in builders after being really badly let down by our previous company. Your friendly and professional manner really put us at ease and you and your team understood exactly about our anxieties.
The work that you carried out for us was of a very high standard and completed efficiently.
We would have no problem in asking for your services in the future should we require them, and we would also be very happy to recommend you to anyone who asks if we know of a good building company.
Thank you once again.
Kind regards, Jayne and family”
“We have no hesitation in recommending Martin Bruno & Co who diligently undertook to replace our 6′ high garden wall in a conservation area to the highest standard and with the appropriate materials and to the complete satisfaction of the Local Council Conservation Officer.”

“Martin and his team have been great to work with throughout the project. Martin stayed in close contact so we always knew what was going on and he was always on hand to offer advice and to talk through sensible solutions to problems before they became headaches.
There was someone on site from start to finish and each one of his team worked cheerfully and professionally to help deliver the project on time, with pride and on budget.
We would recommend Martin Bruno to anyone who wants an efficient, business-like and friendly service.”

“Martin Bruno has worked on two major projects at our house, which is a converted 19th century hop barn with two circular hop kilns.
The first involved the repair and refurbishment of a 1980s two storey extension to the barn. A long sagging oak beam had to be reinforced by the insertion of a steel plate, the ceiling/floor between the upper and lower rooms replaced, and various other faults corrected before the rooms could be reinstated. From the first moment we met him Martin showed a ‘can do’ attitude to the considerable building challenges involved, researching possibilities and solving a number of unexpected problems as they arose.
The second project was the complete renovation of the 1980s kitchen in the house. This involved demolishing walls and stripping back the floor to bare earth and the walls to stone. Not only does Martin have great problem solving skills, and extremely high standards of workmanship mirrored by those of his team on the ground; he is also very good at listening to clients and adapting plans as projects develop. He made a number of design suggestions for our kitchen which we adopted and are very happy with.”

“We would recommend the work of Martin and his team without hesitation.
Martin’s ability to come up with a solution to a unique building repair job gave us great confidence to go ahead. Our garden store with balcony and railings on top required complete re-roofing to stop water penetration. Technically this was complicated by a wrought iron spiral staircase being connected. The work was all done with precision and for a reasonable charge. It’s made a big difference and now looks very smart.”
Mr & Mrs Inman
“Following our recent conversation as I suggested Shelia and I would like to express again our satisfaction for the work completed on our property. From inception to completion the project whilst not hitch free was carried out with a good deal of professionalism, common sense and understanding on all levels. The attention to detail and level of communication when the occasional problem did occur made the entire process more tolerable.
We are very pleased to be able to recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks again.”
The Harrison Family
“The kitchen is great, and we’re very pleased with the design and, of course, the excellent workmanship. Please pass on our best wishes to Malc & Steve; it’s hard to imagine two more competent and co-operative people to carry out such important work for us, and we’re very grateful for the care and attention they took to make sure everything was as it should be.
Thanks again. It may be a while before we have anything else done to the house – it’s looking in better shape than it’s ever been – but we know where to come.”
Sue & Colin
“We engaged Martin Bruno to build our extension as his tender was competitive but more than that he was very diligent in understanding not only what the architect had drawn but what we wanted in a completed project. He was always available to answer any queries we had and give us an update on progress. His men were tidy, polite and considerate and mess was kept to an absolute minimum. Most importantly we are delighted with the end result. Subsequently Martin has done a number of smaller jobs for us with his usual professional competence. We would not hesitate in recommending Martin Bruno to anyone.”

Just taken a breath to catch up with some admin rather than painting!! Yes I’m still painting… Having spent six weeks of upheaval Michelle and I would like to pass onto you our sincere thanks for the very professional, ethical and cooperative way in which you dealt with the work to our home. I am always sceptical, not knowing what to expect from trades people but feel blessed that our choice to work with you and the team was the right one and that we were in safe hands throughout.
Please pass on our thanks and best wishes to Malc, Steve and Richard for the competent and professional way in which they carried out such important work for us. Thanks again. It may be a while before we have anything else done to the house but we know where to come should the need arise.
We are very happy for you to use this as a future testimonial and are very pleased to be able to recommend your services to others.
Michelle & Peter”
