About Us

21st Century Carpentry was founded in 1999 by Loic Bitout, a French born carpenter, who having worked in the construction industry for more than 20 years realised that there was a huge gap in the market for a quality builder to offer a more bespoke service to their customers. Many building companies were offering a standard service for all customers and not taking into account the individual needs of each customer. As a proud craftsman, Loic wanted to offer more.

Since the beginning, the majority of 21st Century Carpentry’s work has been through word of mouth recommendation. After 15 years trading as 21st Century Carpentry and 35 years in the industry, the time had come to evolve into a Limited Company and expand. Our Company has since gone from strength to strength – a true testament to the quality service we strive to deliver within both the domestic and commercial areas of our work.

Our Company specialise in timber frame buildings, roofing (trusses or hand cut roof) 1st fix, staircases, stud wall, door lining etc… 2nd fix, door, skirting and architrave, kitchen fitting etc… We work with small builders and large companies covering Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and Kent and also work further afield when requested.

All our trades people are qualified to NVQ level 2 or higher and have attended health and safety courses to qualify for CSCS cards through CITB including 2 of us with SSSTS for site requirement.

We work within our budgets and timescales to complete the work undertaken. We project manage every job on a daily basis to your requirements and will discuss any alterations or issues that may occur, to ensure our clients’ project is running to schedule.

Our Public Liability Insurance is arranged with Brighton Insurance BKRS Group Ltd (£5m Public Liability and £10m Employers Liability).

We have earned and are proud of our reputation for quality, commitment, professional service and a friendly approach. 21st CCBS Ltd should be at the top of your tender list of any future work that you are considering or are about to undertake.
