South Lincolnshire based D. Brown (Building Contractors) Ltd. formed as a limited company in 1983. The company has built a strong track record in all aspects of construction with a commitment to delivering every job on time and within budget.




Key to this success is the low staff turnover with some management team members having 20 or more years service with the company. A total of over 40 people are employed by the company and close relationships and long standing commitments with both mechanical engineering and electrical sub-contractors ensures close cooperation throughout the contracts it undertakes.

These contracts encompass a wide range of clients including:-

  1. South Holland District Council
  2. Boston Mayflower Housing Association Ltd.
  3. Fenland District Council
  4. The Borough Council of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk
  5. North Kesteven District Council
  6. Lincolnshire County Council/HBS
  7. Pilgrim Health Trust

In addition to those above we have worked with a large range of other organisations and services including work for housing charities, private house building and our own speculative housing developments. Please take a few moments to read through our website to see what advantage working with D Brown (Building Contractors) Ltd., could have for your organisation.



Whilst completing the Sutton Bridge Westmere Primary school, D Brown builders noticed an interest the pupils had taken in their work. They soon arranged for the pupils to have a go at bricklaying themselves. As the extension was already close to completion it was arranged the pupils would build a wall of their own. They each got to lay a brick and did a good job at that!

D Brown Building Contractors Ltd have been Highly Commended for the refurbishment work carried out on the prefabricated bungalows.      

The honour was announced during the 'Best Social or Affordable Housing Development' category at the 2013 LABC East Midlands Building Excellence Awards, held in Nottingham.

Work on the 69 properties, carried out by D Brown Building Contractors Ltd was praised.

Brenda Cook of Carlton Road lives in one of the refurbished properties. She said: 'I have lived here for the past 10 years and in the refurbished property for the past 6 months. It is an absolutely amazing home, the roof and internal works is all fantastic. There is nothing I can fault - anyone would be proud to live in a propertyy like this.'

Paul Smith, Boston Borough Council's principal building control surveyor, said: Over the years Boston Borough Council Building Control have collaborated on many projects with Boston Mayflower Housing Association and have built up an excellent working relationship. In this instance Boston Mayflower updated a group of particularly weary buildings to comply with the current Building Regulations and have given them a new lease of life, as well as giving the tenants highly efficient new homes to be enjoyed for many years to come. Although there was a strong competition, the judges recognised the quality of the project.'

Paul Benton, Boston mayflower's Senior Surveyor, said: 'It was not just about high quality finish of the properties, but Brown's flexibility in dealing with changing priorities when working with vunerable people.'
