What we do

Patterson Construction never adopts an off the shelf approach to any of our projects or clients.

We provide a bespoke service based on the individual requirements. Whatever structural or landscaping package is required for our clients' needs, we will structure our response to ensure that we exceed our clients expectations. We are 100% committed to each and every project and ensure that our people will deliver a superior project in a friendly and professional manner.


Patterson Construction has worked on over 100 basements ranging in value from ten thousand pounds to over two million pounds.

We have successfully formed multi-level basement to both new and retrofit properties and gardens.

We have constructed basements for many uses including children's' play rooms, swimming pools, gyms, saunas, spas, plunge pools, cinemas, wine cellars, storage, home bars, sunken gardens, board rooms, staff accommodation, painting storage, strong rooms, safety deposit boxes, hotel rooms, etc.

Demolition & Site Clearence

Whether it is the demolition of structures within a site clearance package or part-demolition as part of a refurbishment, Patterson Construction will provide the highest quality of service possible to ensure that all health and safety matters are dealt with.   We are committed to avoiding land fill and to recycling materials where ever possible.

Bulk Excavation

Patterson Construction is experienced in bulk excavation in urban and suburban sites from terraced houses to green field sites.   We will ensure that a traffic plan is in place and our neighbours receive minimum disruption.

Super Structure

Patterson Construction will design and supply all our formwork to be used from a single storey to a high rise concrete frame.

  We are experienced in architectural visual quality concrete including black basalt and detailed finishes.

Our work is completed by our owned highly skilled carpenters, steel fixers and concrete placers. Where ever possible we will use our own internal Doka formwork which will reduce the amount of waste on site.

Sub Structure

Patterson Construction has decades of experience in water proofing, excavating, underpinning, piling, including supporting existing buildings for new basements and subterranean rooms and swimming pools.

Our experience ranges from converting vaults into usable space to multimillion pound prime underground facilities.

Hard Landscaping

Patterson Construction has extensive experience in all types of kerbs and paving, from Marshall to traditional York stone and concrete.

  Our people are highly qualified in architectural design and DDA access.

Enabling & Temporary Works

Patterson Construction designs and installs temporary works, enabling works and site access to tight city sites and rural brown and green field sites.

Our enabling works include clearing site, installation of roadways and piling mats, to support existing structures and facade retention.


Patterson Construction's dedicated underpinning teams have extensive experience in underpinning above and below the water table.

We pride ourselves on our ability to underpin in the most difficult conditions and in the most sensitive of sites.

Our underpinning experience includes underpinning the subway for the Australian War Memorial at Hyde Park Corner to party walls for the formation of basements among others.

Archaeological Assistance

London has some of the world's most interesting sites dating back to Roman times. Patterson Construction has worked in and around some of the most sensitive sites where Roman artefacts and unexplored ordnance were found.

We understand that patience and understanding is needed during excavation and to make the working area as safe and secure as possible.

Drainage & Services

Patterson Construction has vast experience in deep drainage, retention tanks as well as domestic and commercial drainage and services.

As many of the basements we construct are below the invert of the main drains, we have gained invaluable experience in pumping systems, cavity drains & non return valves which complements our knowledge of traditional drainage.

Listed buildings

Patterson Construction has the skills and resources to deliver quality projects in a safe, professional and sustainable manner.   We have extensive experience in working in all types of prestigious listed public/private buildings. We form partnerships with our clients to address issues such as noise, access, façade & structural retention, contamination, archaeological interest to listed buildings and places of interest whether vacant or occupied.

Architectural finished concrete

Patterson Construction has vast experience in basic, ordinary, plain and special finished concrete.

Some of our special finished concrete includes exposed black basalt that can be seen in the Museum of Childhood, White Chapel Art Gallery, Monica Vinader at Duke of York Square
