Nightingale Design & Build believes no other home improvement comes close to loft conversions. A fantastic way to create more space in your home and add more value to your property. 

In most Victorian properties, you can achieve 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, occasionally more. It is also a fantastic way to avoid the cost of moving, create a room with a view and increase the intake of natural light in your property and facilitate an open , easy way of life.


There were bumps in the road, of course. On any building project, the unexpected will happen. What counts is how the contractor deals with the problems, and Kevin sorted out issues promptly and professionally. He has turned a cramped cottage into an airy and bright home fit for the 21st century, and we are thrilled with the results.

Nightingale Design & Build redid our house from top to bottom. Under the beady eye of his excellent foreman, Marcin, they constructed a fantastic loft conversion and rear extension. Our unmodernised house was taken back to the brick, replumbed and rewired, re-plastered and re-painted. Our water supply upgraded and fuse box replaced; a new kitchen and two new bathrooms installed; our gardens landscaped front and back. Throughout, his people were considerate, tidy, polite, punctual, flexible and most importantly of all meticulous about the quality of their work.

Nightingale Design has been working with us on our extensive renovation project for the last 6 months. Kevin is very hands on and present throughout all stages of the build process – from managing the planning application and drawings to the structural engineers and party wall officers. He has also been very good at guiding us through some of the more difficult design and interiors elements and helpful in pointing us to the right decisions.

It says a lot about an ambitious home building project when at the end of a nine-month slog you’re as delighted to see your contractor coming through the door as you were on the day you accepted his tender in the first place. We would recommend Kevin to anyone – and that’s testament to him and his professional, skilled team.

Kevin Doran and his Nightingale Design and build team take the concept of considerate construction to a higher level. Kevin is highly motivated, cost-conscious and aware of clients’ priorities. Not only is his team’s expertise wide-ranging but also together or individually each knows how to work with and around clients and their families while work is going on in the most efficient, courteous and considerate manner.
