Refurb are a group of businesses offering a complete construction solution for commercial and domestic clients.

Meet the team

Refurb was founded by David Simmonds and Matthew Boyd, with a mission to bring new levels of service to clients by exceeding their expectations. We pride ourselves on making a difference to clients by the personal way we deliver all projects that we work on; from the support staff in the office to the teams on site. Refurb have many years of experience in the building trade and understand not only what’s involved in delivering a successful project but the challenges and concerns of clients, both domestic and commercial.

We want people to feel their interactions with us and what we deliver does make a difference.
