Words from the Director of London and Kent Construction Ltd, Scott Bennett.
I have resided in Eltham, Royal Borough of Greenwich, for over 35 years and have seen many changes, some good and some bad, but these changes are going on all over the world everyday and sometimes we need to just adapt and carry on. I had spent many years as a youngster riding my bike around the streets of Eltham taking in my surroundings. After entering the building trade in 1989 I went on to buy properties in the Eltham area, renovating them and then re-selling them. This has given me great knowledge of how these buildings have been constructed. This is the knowledge that I brought to London and Kent Construction Ltd when I started trading in 1995 and we have used this information to our advantage to grow and help the residents of Eltham. Whether you need a loft conversion, basement conversion, house extension or almost anything to do with the building trade, we are here to help.
After living in Eltham for so long I have discovered that it is a close knit community with very friendly and helpful locals. I have found it to be a safe and welcoming place where I have raised two children who enjoy living in the Eltham area. Now it’s my turn to give something back to the community by providing a fair and loyal service. Knowing that when we work in your property and around you family there is complete trust at all times. We would like to be looked at as your trustworthy local builder in Eltham SE9.
What is London and Kent Construction Ltd doing for its local community?
When undertaking our jobs we always like to use local resources and businesses to assist us. This could be from the local DIY stores, local printers, and stationery companies and using the local mechanic to fix our vans. We see it as giving back to our community, helping it grow and develop into a place that can help make a difference. Around 90 per cent of our staff are local,
We sponsor local charities whenever we can and find it fulfilling that we can help people, not just in the construction trade, but in the trials and tribulations of day to day life.
We recently helped out a local charity called ‘Rocking to Beat Cancer’ to put on a show at our local Bob Hope Theatre. They raised an astonishing £4,250.00 which was distributed to chosen charities. WELL DONE GUYS!

Men in Sheds Eltham SE9
Men in Sheds is a great charity, We visited them back in July and these guys loved getting together working as a team and producing some very nice items. We donate small amounts of materials to them over the year.
Men in Sheds is a place where retired men can get together to chat and learn skills and also tinker around with tools and stuff and do some practical things for themselves and the community.
