Established in 1759, Sykes & Son Limited is London’s oldest independent building contractor. Whilst the company has traded from the Essex St area in WC2 for over 250 years, Sykes has evolved over this period from being a small specialist contractor – a glazier, plumber, decorator and small builder – into a medium sized multi-discipline contractor with an annual turnover over £25m.

The company has three main workstreams: Building, Mechanical & Electrical and Maintenance. This diversity of self-delivered services allows us to offer a “one stop shop” solution to our clients. Furthermore, we have the flexibility to carry out minor works through to multi-million-pound projects.

We are incredibly proud of the part that we have played in restoring, building, refurbishing and maintaining our capital’s heritage over the years. From royal palaces to world renowned museums, galleries and universities, we continue to forge long-term working relationships at London’s finest buildings.

Whilst our heritage is a source of great pride, Sykes has continued to review working processes to ensure that up to date technology and systems are employed across the business.

Our extensive list of long-term blue-chip clients is testimony to the core values that underpin the business – We Build Relationships; We Bring Expertise; We Are Professional; We Always Care.
