Professional builders in Bishop's Stortford herts

Graham Ratcliff and Andy Burridge have since been the Directors for the last 20 years and have taken the business forwards and we still remain as established and reputable builders within the local area. We are now based at Cannon’s Yard in Great Hallingbury, Bishops Stortford, a 5-minute drive from Stansted Airport and this has been our home for the last 14 years.

Since moving in to Cannon’s Yard we have evolved in to a fully functional Project Management Team with Estimators, Surveyors and Project Managers as well as Site Agents and Health & Safety Co-ordinators. With the knowledge and experience to carry out not only general building works, but also design & build projects where we are able to sit down with the client, fully understand their needs and develop their idea into a project and take it through to construction. As we are a main contractor, we are able to offer a one-stop-shop which removes the need for various points of contact throughout the building project enabling the client to take a step back leaving them stress free knowing that their project is in capable hands.

Although certain aspects of the Business have changed, Ratcliff & Burridge have continued to work for the same types of clients for over 50 years within the construction sector and have gained a solid reputation as an efficient, reliable contractor with a highly knowledgeable Project Management team.
