About BH Basements


Who We Are

The Directors Thomas Job and Chris Barry set up BH Basements 12 years ago. Chris & Tom have 35 years’ experience in the industry and personally oversee each project in conjunction with their experienced team. BH Basements have become a market leader in the central London area. Being a ASUC member which is the benchmark of excellence within our industry means we invest heavily in health and safety and training our workforce, nurturing talent and fostering creativity to solve the daily challenges of our industry. The BHB team are at the helm of innovation and progress so we continue to be a key player in our department.

Whilst BH Basements specialise in complex structural shells we also are able to assist private homeowners with their project from conception through to a high end fit out.

BH Basements set the highest standards when it comes to our financial standing, technical knowledge, staff training and Health & Safety. We set annual targets which are monitored throughout the year to ensure we are set up to deliver what our client wants on time and on budget.

From piling to Basements extensions BH Basements are the perfect partner to work with. Whether you require a basement extension or you are adding a swimming pool under the property BH Basements brings a wealth of experience to deliver the project.

Above and beyond the product warranties and our company warranties for the install we can also offer and insurance backed guarantee on solely our tanking works if the overall latent defects cover for the entire project is not adopted.

“Really enjoyed working with BH Basements on our Project. Tom and Chris were very helpful, experienced and proactive. It was a tight difficult build with occupied neighboring properties but they managed to complete the works with great success. Would be very happy to work with again!”

Our Values

Our foundation is built upon unwavering values that define who we are and how we operate.


Health and safety and well being

Prioritising health, safety, and wellbeing in the construction industry and across each and every of BHB’s projects, this not only protects workers from harm but also has other benefits for the project as a whole. Ensuring health, safety, and wellbeing in our industry requires a proactive approach from BH Basements management and operatives. By adhering to regulations, implementing best practices, and fostering a culture of safety and wellbeing on all our sites we can create a safer, healthier, and more productive workplace.


Integrity and trust

Integrity and trust are foundational elements that underpin successful and sustainable businesses. BHB prides themselves in fact that all of our previous clients along with clients consultants are return clients. In today’s competitive and fast-paced business environment, maintaining a reputation for integrity and earning the trust of our customers, employees, consultants and partners, is more important than ever.


Building safety Act

The Building Safety Act will have significant implications for the construction industry in the UK and BHB take it very seriously the possibilities that can arise from previous shortfalls in design and planning the projects . This includes the client, the principal contractor (BHB) and the principal designer. It will require industry professionals to adapt to new roles, responsibilities, and regulatory requirements. There will be a greater focus on building safety throughout the design, construction, and management of buildings, with stricter requirements for compliance and accountability.   In summary, the Building Safety Act represents a major reform of the building safety regulatory system in the UK, aiming to improve building safety standards, enhance accountability, and protect residents and occupants of buildings.


Environmental Philosophy and Sustainable design

Environmental and sustainable design has become a cornerstone of modern construction practices in the UK. By integrating sustainable design principles and practices into building projects, the construction industry can contribute to addressing climate change and reducing and offsetting the environmental impact our projects may have. BHB will ensure that we use recycled materials, cement replacement wherever possible and all material taken off site are responsibly recycled and disposed.


Staff Career Progression and Training

Career progression and training are vital aspects of how BHB approach the longevity of our business, enabling employees to develop their skills, advance their careers, and contribute to the success of BHB. As the construction industry continues to evolve with technological advancements, regulatory changes, and shifting market demands, investing in staff training and development is crucial for staying competitive and ensuring high-quality project delivery for our clients.
