About

Cox Format Developments Limited is a professional building company. The majority of our work is through personal recommendations. We are always happy to show previous work and our customers are happy to let you look! We pride ourselves on quoting a good price and sticking to it. Unless you instruct us to, we never add on "extras" as some less reputable builders do as their standard practice.

Because we are professionals, we can see what work is necessary to achieve your objectives, and we price accordingly. Others may quote cheaper initially, then add on what they see as "unforeseen extras". We believe our work is cheaper for the client in the long run.

On Budget... On Time... Everytime.

We used Cox to completely renovate our loft and some of the first floor. Our job was not at all straightforward as the old loft conversion had to be ripped out and effectively started again - but we were impressed with how quickly and professionally they completed the job, which finished on time. They are on site every morning by 730 and work solidly until 4. Communication was fantastic and we were particularly impressed with how they resolved inevitable issues that came up in the build. All their people are lovely, entirely trustworthy and very respectful - by the end of the build they felt like part of the family! Most importantly, we completely trusted them and would definitely use them again or recommend to others.

We used Cox Format to extend and upgrade a 20 year old loft extension and also to remodel other areas including moving the kitchen into the middle of our mid terrace house. They were recommended by our architects and also by several neighbours which was a good start. After meeting Mark and Peter I was convinced that they were highly motivated to get the whole job complete in around 12 weeks which was important to us as we would be living in the property. I was extremely happy with the whole process and the end result. The Cox Site team expertly lead by James were all a pleasure to have in the house and made the whole job as stress free as possible. James does an incredible job of juggling shifting priorities, weather and people, very impressive. The subcontractors (Plumber, Electrician, Tiler, Plasterer) brought in were all equally likeable, honest and clearly part of an extended family of trades well used to working together. There were a couple of unexpected issues during the project (there always are some) and they were dealt with minimum fuss and cost. At all times I felt at ease and as a client and treated with empathy and respect. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Hip-to-gable loft build in 6 weeks

Having seen their mostly 5-star online reviews for loft builds, Cox Format were amongst the quotes solicited and were subsequently selected for what was a first major house project. The basic loft quotation was itemised professionally to an admirable level of detail, with optional additional works listed separately for any desired upgrades (e.g. Juliet balcony instead of standard dormer window). Work commenced per agreed date and proceeded quickly, with site attendance being daily (Mon-Fri) whatever the weather. Few builders would claim to deliver a quality loft build in just 6 weeks, but with Cox Format’s efficient and experienced project management team (thanks to Mark in the office and James onsite) this must be the norm as the 6-week completion was easily achieved. When issues arose, as they usually will, these were dealt with promptly. You’ll need to be proactive if wanting certain preferred finishes (e.g. valley tiles vs. more common zinc flashing for roof valleys) as most builders are creatures of habit and will go ahead with their standard practices if you don’t request otherwise. All in all, a potentially stressful experience went smoothly so am happy to recommend this company as, true to their word, they delivered the build “on budget, on time”.

I am delighted with the transformation of my home, which involved much more than a loft conversion, adding complexity to the project. Communication was excellent from the pre-contract stage to completion. I appreciate the time taken before building started, to work through the plans in detail (design as well as costs). The foreman and his team were friendly, reliable, hardworking and efficient, with the work completed on time. His communication with me, my neighbours and suppliers was always timely, relevant and helpful. I am very happy with the quality of work and would confidently entrust CFD to deliver other home improvements I am planning.

Cox Format built our single-storey ground floor extension, incorporating a new en suite and dining area and preparing the existing kitchen space for new units. As well as extensive construction, the works involved a new boiler and radiators, updating electrics and installing lantern skylights. In addition, they refurbished our upstairs bathroom, which involved re-routing drainage pipes and the digging of a new manhole. Their costing was fair for the quality of work provided and included the provision of drawings and the obtaining of planning permission. Where potential problems arose, they were proactive in recommending solutions and quick to reconsult both the architects and structural engineer to produce the desired result. Their workers were polite, punctual and skilled at their jobs, with a clear contact structure in place, involving a knowledgeable foreman and efficient, friendly project manager. I would highly recommend them.

As well as a loft conversion, Cox Format also remodelled the middle floor of our house. Communication from start to finish was excellent. James was fantastic managing the work and was always available and willing to offer time to talk through different aspects of the job. He has a great friendly and professional team who were ready to go at 0730 and worked through to 4pm. The work is of very high quality and it has transformed our house and the space we live in. Our home is our most valuable asset and we're pleased and grateful that we put our trust in Cox Format.

Excellent Loft Conversion - so happy.

We are so pleased with our loft which the Cox team completed before Christmas. Overall the team were friendly and approachable, always happy to answer our questions etc. All the guys were great with our two young children and were always a pleasure to have on site - there was no bad behaviour or rudeness and they were so helpful when it came to moving furniture etc when the works were moving from room to room. Charlie and Luigi in particular were super helpful and Luigi's woodwork is excellent. We're really happy with it. We have also been super happy with the trades Cox put us in touch with: - Alan and his son did an excellent job on the tiling. - Del, the painter and decorator . But none of it would have been possible without James, the Project Manager/Foreman. We thought he was excellent and made the whole process run so smoothly. We know there were a few weeks when it was a crunch point on a few of his sites but he never made us feel rushed, always made time for us and was happy to help us understand more before we had to make any decisions. The client we met at Windsor Drive before we signed up for the works to be done gushed about him and now we can totally understand why. So professional and helpful and just generally a lovely bloke. The works were completed on time and in budget and no additional works (which we had asked for) were done without clearing costs with us first. Overall so glad we chose them. Everything worked out just how we wanted.

The whole process from start to finish was first class. Mark the project Manager was efficient and great to deal with. James the Forman was fantastic. He was very knowledgable, patient and really helped us make the right decisions. All the lads that worked on the job were highly skilled and very hard working. All in all we couldn’t be happier that we used Cox Format.

We wanted to say thank you so much for helping us renovate our house exactly the way we wanted. We have been very impressed with CFD, from our very first contact over a year ago all the way through to completion. During our initial meeting with Peter and Mark, we could see how professional, organised and honest they are, and this continued throughout our build project. Communication was clear and in writing, with no hidden costs or surprises. Any queries we had were always promptly dealt with. We had a loft conversion and extension done. All the work was done to the highest standard, and with incredible care, attention to detail and moreover respect for our home and family. They said our loft would be done in 6 weeks, and they were done bang on time. Our extension, 3 months - again right on the money. They turned up on time, every day come rain or shine and cleaned up after themselves at the end of the day. Not only did the builders do a sterling job, but so did all the subcontracted tradespeople. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Cox Format Developments for your building project: their slogan is they are “on budget, on time…every time” and for us they certainly lived up to that promise. Thanks to the whole team at Cox Format, what could have been a nightmare project has become our dream home. If you have a building project in mind and don’t know who to turn to, give Cox Format a call, you won’t regret it!
