The 'Old School' Building Company

Reigate's Premier Building Service

Welcome to The 'Old School' Building Company. The name 'Old School' was chosen as it summed up our approach to building work. We employ only the best qualified tradesmen with old fashioned, traditional values, skills and integrity that sadly seem to be lacking these days. 


Whilst we love working with older buildings we also embrace the latest technologies and construction methods available across all the construction trades so we are able to turn our hand to virtually any brief.


We are based in Reigate, Surrey and serve Reigate, Redhill and the surrounding towns and villages.


So whether your are thinking of remodelling a listed building or building a 'state of the art' extension we would love to hear from you.

We detail the latest projects and news from The "Old School' Building Company in our blog.


We discuss the latest projects we are working on, what our client's requirements are, and how we are intending to approach their building project.

We show how we use our experience as a builder to anticipate all the potential pit falls to try and ensure a smooth, well run project.


We also have information on the latest construction news. We detail topical issues related to planning, building control and listed building consent that have affected our projects.

We also share some of the more light hearted moments that have happened on site!




We enjoy our work and we love our client's! They, after all, pay our bills!

It is important that that we get a thorough understanding as to what our clients want to achieve. 


We will then put plans into place to ensure a well run building project taking the minimum amount of time, and causing the least amount of disruption.


Regular communication between builder and client is the key to ensure that the project runs smoothly and gets completed on time, and on budget!


Read examples of our previous briefs, see pictures of the work we have carried out and read the comments of our clients!
