We work directly with clients in the commercial and education sectors, and in partnership with larger building contractors. Testimonials from some of our clients are included below

Alabas Limited were recommended to us to help with the final stages of a grade II listed building renovation. They responded quickly and helped us reach a successful conclusion to the project. They were responsive, accommodating and the work they did was sympathetic to the building. Matthew and the team were all very experienced and professional and their support to us was greatly appreciated.

It is vital to us that any companies we work with are able to replicate the high standards synonymous with the Lifestory brand. So, to have found a local company who can respond as Alabas do and offer the level of quality they do is fantastic. Not only that but the Alabas team have been able to build trust and respect amongst the property owners, who are not only happy to welcome them into their homes but on occasions have actually requested that we use Alabas when building work is being planned. I would have no hesitation recommending Alabas to other businesses looking for a high quality, trustworthy building company to work with


Alabas have worked alongside us on a number of projects. We recommend them to our clients because we know they will complete any works to a high standard, whilst being responsive to any questions or suggestions, providing straightforward pragmatic solutions. Plus, they are generally nice people to do business with!


We have worked with Matthew Clarke and Alabas completing a number of projects together. We keep using them because they are professional, flexible and friendly and we know that any work they do will meet the high standards we require and expect. We do and will continue to recommend them to companies looking for a high-quality service delivered in a personable manner.

Alabas have completed a number of projects for Lifestory on our PegasusLife and Renaissance Retirement developments. All have been finished to an excellent standard, and the team involved have been easy to deal with and kept to timelines. I would happily recommend Alabas to businesses looking for a friendly and reliable building services company.


Alabas undertook a two-part project for us at very short notice. Stage one has been completed to our satisfaction and they are now in the middle of stage two. Matt is very easy to communicate with and doesn’t retreat into builder-speak when asked a question. I really feel he listens and tries to find the best solution for all concerned. The whole team are respectful of our premises, staff and clients: no loud radios, bad language or comments, and no unnecessary mess. They are also quick to offer help if it looks like we need it. For some time, we have been looking for a building contractor to deal with buildings maintenance for us and I think we have found the best candidate for the job in Alabas.

International House Bristol

When we recommend a building company to a client it is vital that they do a good job, or it reflects badly on us. Luckily, both the client and ourselves were very happy with the work that Alabas undertook. They project managed the build as well as completing the works, making the whole process stress free and the result is just as requested.

I’ve always been very happy with the work that Alabas does for us at Kingswood School. As well as completing all works to a high standard, the team are easy to work with and communicative, constantly ensuring that we are happy with what has been done. I would certainly recommend them to other schools or businesses looking for a commercial building contractor.

The Alabas team are always a pleasure to work with . They have undertaken a number of office remodelling projects for us, and each time we have been really pleased with the work they've completed. They just get on with the job in hand, whilst being consistently approachable and friendly.

Yeo Valley Family Farm

Alabas were appointed following a successful competitive tender for the construction of a 20 space car park extension at one of our later-living developments. Their detailed tender submission, competitive pricing and experience of completing similar jobs shone through, and contributed to their award of the project. Alabas were complete professionals in their delivery of the car park extension, working alongside our on-site operations team and liaising with residents, in a sensitive and respectful manner. The challenge of tying-in material choices for the extension to the original development, a requirement of the project, was dealt with transparently. Lighting bollards which had since been discontinued were sourced from a residual stock in Italy, just one example of Alabas going the extra mile to deliver on the quality product in which we desire. Having to down tools for a period of two weeks, at no fault of Alabas', as we looked to rectify an historic design issue which directly impacted the extension's construction, was dealt with efficiently, with subcontractors re-engaged in a timely manner to limit the impact on programme and to prevent a delay in completion.
Alabas' communication was fantastic throughout, with both our project manager appointed on the project, and ourselves as the client. I would not hesitate to use them again, no matter the size of the project given their competency.
