We were commissioned to develop an old single garage into a new double eco garage with an upstairs studio and shower room. It's eco because it houses a plant room for pumps, storing water heated from the bore holes in the ground on site. A totally energy efficient way for the house to extract energy and keep warm or cool depending on the season.

In 2017 Hever Castle contacted us to work closely with their specialist architect FRLA in building a brand new adventure playground in-keeping with their Grade 1 heritage site.
Our role was to excavate the site, build a retaining wall and steps up to the Tudor Towers, tarmac the surfaces and add stone pathways. We sourced boulders from Wales specifically to match the dimensions on the plans and filled the playpen with high quality sand suitable for children to play in.
Take a look at the designs and videos of construction and completion.
Steadleaze House located in Hammerwood required an impressive new driveway with better sight lines for pulling in and out of the home.
The new driveway offered great views of the church whilst driving up the 215 meter road between the trees.

“In 2018, Apsley Wall were appointed to undertake the groundwork's for the second phase of a playground that FRLA designed for Hever Castle in Kent. The works included the construction of a retaining wall, a complex set of steps, a path, the installation of over 40 boulders ranging from 1 to 7 tonnes (13 arranged in a series of steps), grading of the site, preparation of areas for planting, tarmacing and the constriction of a 450m2 sand pit.
Throughout the project Apsley Wall endeavoured to understand exactly what it was that we wanted and went out of their way to help us achieve it. Their staff were enthusiastic about the project and this was reflected in the quality of the work. Their manager Ricky Wall was good at communicating their schedule of works and how they were progressing on site. Despite some challenges, the groundwork's ran smoothly and Apsley Wall completed the work when they said they would. Whenever issues were encountered or they had queries about something, they were quick to bring these to our attention and often provided suggestions for possible solutions.”

I am only too happy to recommend you to others because the work your team does is excellent. I think it is also telling that many of your team have been with you for over a decade and they are always friendly to the staff here and our visitors.
Thank you again and I look forward to phase two of the Astor Wing drive - the car park, next winter.”

“I recently had to move out of my home for a massive underpinning work and my heart sank. However, it was my good fortune to have the builders, Apsley Wall. They started on the appointed day and completed it on schedule.
Every member of the team was professional, thorough and pleasant to work with, they went that extra mile. The work was excellent and the finishing also.”

“I write to advise that vkhp-consulting ltd have regularly appointed on behalf of our clients Apsley Wall Ltd over a period in excess of 20 years to undertake various construction works for us.
The typical works that have been undertaken could range from small refurbishment or structural alterations to more complex underpinning and subsidence damage repairs with contract values ranging from a few thousand pounds to £250,000.
Apsley Wall have remained on our tender list over this entire period due to the good quality of the work they have produced and their friendly and professional approach when dealing with our clients.
We have always found Apsley Wall to be fair in their valuation of extras and accommodating when changes are needed during the construction phase.”
