Can I recommend QPDB? 100% yes! They did a full renovation of our Victorian terrace in 2016 and I wish I could do it all over again it was that great. A brilliant team of lovely people who we felt always had our backs (yes – builders who you can trust – who would have thought?!). They brought tons of great ideas and solutions to the table, finished our house on time (another wow) and to a great standard – there isn’t one shoddy bit of workmanship here – even in cupboards and hidden away places – it’s all been done to the best standard possible. We are more than happy with what they did for us and the relationship we have them now two years on is still really helpful. Can only hope we do get to do it all over again sometime in the future!
My refurbishment project was extensive and brilliantly executed by QPBD.
We removed the roof, added a central skylight over the staircase, a rear upper extension, side extension and lowered the rear of the house to garden level giving us a reception with gallery proportions. Every detail was carried out to our drawings and having worked with many building contractors in my profession this is not always the case! They are a very easy team to work with and my project was completed in a record ten months so I have no hesitation in recommending them.

By some amazing bit of good fortune someone mentioned QPDB to me when I bought a house in Kensal Green. I have undertaken many building projects and I can genuinely say working with Nathan and his team was my best experience to date. In my opinion they have lifted the bar way beyond the normal building experience. Every aspect of the job – a side return and room in the roof – was carried out to an exemplary standard. If anything wasn’t quite right, it was corrected without a quibble. I was also extremely fortunate that my job coincided with the arrival of Trudy who was unbelievably helpful and guided me through bathroom fittings and anything else I needed help with. Additionally Nathan promised to try his hardest to finish a month early to compensate for a late start caused through no fault of his own – and he pretty much succeeded! Additionally this was all done with only weekly visits from me as I was living out of London at the time. I would use Nathan and Trudy and the team again without a moment’s hesitation.
Working with Nathan and his team was a blast from design to build completion. Nathan kept coming up with great ideas and got me to incorporate things I had not thought of into my home. He has great contacts who added the finishing touches. It was a “back to brick” build I believe they call it. When you see no walls, no floors and just the bare brick external walls you really cannot imagine how amazing it is going to be. It exceeded my expectations. Still 18 months later when I am away for a few days and come back I am thrilled afresh with my new home. Thanks to all of the team for their great work and patience
I had a dream for a very long time that one day I would live and work in my property. With the help of my sister and the skill of QPAD my dream has come true. As with all long term dreams I wanted everything. Everything was delivered with the guidance of Nathan and the skill of his workforce. Jarek, the project manager, was amazing and kind. He put up with all sorts of bad ideas on my side and replaced them with practical and skilful advice. I was constantly in touch with Trudy at the office and she was yet another guiding hand. She sourced almost everything I wanted. The architect Matthias put all the plans into such good shape that the workmen could work directly from them. Joe designed all my built in cupboards. Genius. Not to be forgotten the budget was on the button and the timing was fantastic.
I employed QPDB to entirely refurbish my house. It was taken right back to the rafters and completely remodelled from top to bottom. Nathan and his team of builders were a pleasure to work with; they were efficient, on time with the build and very tidy. Nathan was always available to chat through any problems and gave excellent practical advice, his team was quick to react to changes. I found the level of workmanship and finishing excellent. They would always be my first choice for any future building works and I would 100 per cent recommend them.

It’s rare to find a team who are fun to work with, have a great eye for design, a wonderful attention to detail and the ability to push what you thought was possible. But that’s what you get with QPDB who are an absolute joy to work with from beginning to end. I can’t speak highly enough of what they do or who they are.

We were absolutely thrilled with our new kitchen extension. The quality of the workmanship was superb, the attention to detail amazing and the whole team incredibly polite and hardworking. We stayed on budget and on schedule. For everything from cost through to planning, design and execution they were just brilliant. We would not hesitate to use QPDB again.
Nathan and the guys at QPDB were quite literally a dream team to work with. They were incredibly accommodating and always offered suggestions/solutions when we needed them. One of the things we appreciated most was their flexibility throughout the process: as the build progressed we were able to visualise new ideas and improvements to the architects plans and QPDB went out of their way to accommodate our numerous changes without increasing the cost or compromising the high quality finish. We absolutely plan to use Nathan and the team on our next project and would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family.
These guys are so lovely. Our extension was completed amazingly on time to an excellent standard. The team are polite and would leave the place as clean as they could every day. (We lived in the house during the work so this was a blessing!) My completed kitchen was featured in Living Etc.

We got Nathan and Andrew from QPDB to do our side and rear extension.
We were very happy with the work which was completed on time and on budget, with the least amount of disruption as we stayed in the property whilst the work was taking place.
Nathan is a charming man and with Andrew they make a great team. Our house was featured in a magazine.
Emmanuel Baumand, Purl Frost
The team of QPDB were from the very start professional and helpful in explaining how they were going to manage the project.
Both Senior and Junior team members are brilliant at what they do and gave constructive advise throughout the project.
They closed all areas such that disruption was kept to a minimum.
Available instantly outside working hours when there were any issues that required fixing.
The End result was fantastic and we couldn’t be happier.
Would recommend QPDB without hesitation.
Queens Park Design & Build have done two projects for me and both were executed perfectly. They were on budget, on time and the quality of the work exactly what I had hoped for. They created a fantastic loft conversion at my home and have also helped in the creation of Sacro Cuore Pizzeria in Kensal Rise. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nathan and his team!
Adam Clark, Sacro Cuore Pizza
We were new to property renovation, so when we bought our first London home we were very grateful to come across Nathan and his team, they took complete control of our renovation project and delivered it on budget, on time and exactly as we wanted it.
Russ and Vibeke Brask Thompson
QPDB have been fantastic throughout our building project. Always amenable, and able to provide sensible, cost-effective solutions to both external and interior problems. Nathan has great taste and a good eye, and was always willing to work with us to find the right material / look / finish for the budget. His team were always hard-working and delivered on time. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.
Amelia and David Granger
Queens Park Design have re-written the rule book when it comes to builders – fast, friendly and first and foremost brilliant at what they do. For the first time ever we had work done and are still on talking terms with our builders. Despite living through the build we almost didn’t know they were there and the end result was nothing short of spectacular.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and if it wasn’t for the fact that I’d get into trouble with my wife or the police I’d happily shout it from my lovely ‘new’ loft extension…
Guy and Naomi Templeton
I have known Nathan for 15 years…so it was quite a shock asking him to knock down a big wall in our house. He has proved then and since that he can be utterly trusted. He and Andrew have redeveloped most of our house now, and have completed every job with care, huge creative input and great attention to detail. They have come in on budget and on time, and have returned promptly and cheerfully if any problem has cropped up. They have gone above and beyond each time, and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. Building work has never been this fun.
