About Us

We are a well established building company set up in 1969 by Brian Huntly.

In 1988 Brian unfortunately passed away and his son-in-law who worked for him inherited the business. Soon after it was agreed that CAW Associates and Brian Huntly Builders would amalgamate and form Brian Huntly Builders Ltd.

The Brian Huntly name was retained out of respect and we have gone from strength to strength since that time building up an extensive list of clientele, many of which we have worked for numerous times.

We are a traditional building company able to tackle any project large or small, new or old, listed or in conservation areas. We specialise in extensions, refurbishments, decorations, listed building renovations, conservatories, patios, drives and footpaths, We have a full complement of tradesmen and an extensive relationship with specialist sub-contractors built up over 25 years.

Whatever the problem or requirements we have the knowledge and expertise to put forward cost effective solutions.

Please take the time to look though the few projects illustrated. If these do not meet your requirements, please talk to one of our knowledgeable staff.


We chose Brian Huntly Builders for our refurbishment and extension based on two factors: the price quoted and recommendations from two other local residents they had done similar work for. The recommendations centred on the quality of the work undertaken and the excellence of Huntly’s project management skills.

Our experience accorded with the recommendations we received. The project was conducted efficiently and communication was excellent, we were kept informed regularly of what was, or would be, happening. Quality control was strict. We are extremely happy with the work and it has attracted favourable, unsolicited comment.

This is the second project for which we have employed Brian Huntly, the first being an extension on our previous house. It was a relatively complex job on a sloping site involving non-standard building technologies including an integrated solar thermal and photovoltaic roof, sealed construction with mechanically ventilated heat recovery, large areas of polished concrete floors, integrated balcony with full-width opening glazed wall, oak-lined winding staircase, and so on.

The job required demolition of a bungalow and significant excavation to provide a bottom floor with retaining walls set back into the hill, with two further timber-framed and slate and cedar clad floors above.

Brian Huntley completed this job to the highest standard which has been remarked upon by our many visitors, many of them knowledgeable about construction. We have now lived here for six months, everything works and snagging items to date have been trivial.

Above all, they are pleasant, responsive and reliable people to work with, and indeed live with, as we moved in some time before completion.

We have worked with Brian Huntly Builders on a recent project in Prince Edwards Road, Lewes. The nature of the project was to create a new build low energy dwelling incorporating renewable energy, airtight construction and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery technology. Brian Huntly Builders were able to achieve 3 air changes per hour, a reflection of the care and attention paid to the implementation of air tightness membranes and tapes. The building was constructed using retainin~ elements built into the ground, a timber frame structure above and steel supports for the large 1st floor balcony.

The project included an integrated PV tile, solar thermal tile and rooflight system. Brian HuntlyBuilders went out of their way to collect and install the Swiss roofing system, which was one of the first of its kind to be implemented in the UK.

I would have no. hesitation in recommending them for future projects.
