We have recently completed three new builds in the picturesque village of Maidencombe. The ground floor of each of the houses was sympathetically constructed using reclaimed stone from the derelict buildings that previously occupied this site.

European Builders Confederation

EBC - European Builders Confederation

A Representation for construction craftsmen and SMEs in Brussels!

An increasing number of national regulations are little more than national adaptations of European legislation in the social, fiscal and standardisation domains, usually implemented without properly assessing their impact on SMEs or providing neither special arrangements nor SME specific support.

Craftsmen and SMEs are unable to rigorously comply with a regulatory regime that has become too complex and is unsuited to the everyday facts of life.

Those representing construction craftsmen in several European countries therefore joined forces and, in 1990, founded the EBC – European Builders' Confederation. Through its 19 member and partner organisations, EBC represents 2 million craft and SMEs employing 2.5 million workers.

Via its permanent office in Brussels, EBC works in close collaboration with the European Union of Craftsmen and SMEs (UEAPME) and the Office of Craftsmen and SMEs for Standardisation (NORMAPME), organisations of which EBC is a member.

"In all things, LJC has been open and fair regarding costs, particularly as our lists of adjustments grew. Final invoices reflected original estimates and the costs of all works were at all times totally transparent. We would recommend Richard and his team without hesitation."

Dr. G Bown, Paignton

"Nothing was too much trouble for LJC Construction in the building of our new house. We have a shared access driveway and they were always able to keep everything tidy and out of the way. We hardly knew they were there. As for the final result – we were amazed at the quality and high level of finish. I would recommend them to anyone."
