Cube lofts were great on all counts. Firstly, the simplicity of having everything in one place made the project that much easier. Any concerns about what could, or could not, be done were dealt with swiftly and double checked with building controls etc. whilst we were there which gave comfort that we were dealing with people who knew what they were doing.
The build itself was very smooth. Radek and his team were fantastic. They came up with quick workarounds to problems on site which will always arise no matter how much planning you do! They were also very courteous without us asking them to be. We had a six month old in the house at the time of the build. It was noticeable (and hugely appreciated) that they would try and do the quieter work when the baby was asleep. Not something we would have ever asked for, but it was the little things like this that made working with them so easy. Would absolutely recommend them!
We found Cube extremely unprofessional and would not use them again nor recommend them. We hired them to "project manage" at significant cost, as I had a demanding job in the city, my husband runs his own business and I was pregnant. For many weeks we did not see a project manager at all. They also did not forsee basic issues which considering this is what they do they should have highlighted - ie issues with building control / foundations due to a tree being within 2meters of foundations - surely they should have noted as the "experts". This added about £9K to costs. Issues with build over agreements with Thames water. It was also never explained to us that we would only deal with Quad build and never Cube often needing to pay cash. The finish was terrible. The dishwasher kept falling over - very dangerous, cupboard doors were skew and hinges not right. Plumbing leaked etc etc. Towards the end of the build i left numerous message and sent emails - no reply. The build would NEVER have finished if my husband didn't work from home. We project managed. In addition Cube advised us we could save costs by purchasing our own kitchen and bathroom which they could install - terrible idea. My husband kept having to assist with the kitchen fit. They are not kitchen specialists. I wouldn't do this again. My father is a project manager and eventually had to fly from abroad to get the finish needed - ie get the dishwasher installed properly, get the plumbing sorted with new underfloor heating. Communication was terrible. In the last month (which was now over running by a month) some days there was nobody here, as times just one guy sweeping - whats the point of this. Its just went on and on and on.
My partner and I were considering a large project which included building an extension to the rear and front of the property with a new kitchen and bathroom, refurbishing the remaining rooms, putting in underfloor heating, building a loft conversion and all decoration.
We spoke with a few builders but after our initial meeting with Roy from Cube Lofts, we were very impressed that he then provided a clearly itemised schedule showing exactly what building work would be carried out. It gave us some confidence that there would minimal or no surprises adding to the cost at a later stage. Once the work had started we saw very rapid progress as on some days we saw 6 – 8 builders on site depending on what was being done. The company just increased the workforce when additional hands were needed. The guys came every day throughout the work including some bank holidays and did not ever disappear to do other projects! Throughout the work (6 months) the guys were really pleasant, polite and were even happy to help us with other things like moving furniture and gardening materials.
The end result is stunning! So many of our friends have asked ‘who did your building work?’ Even our architect visited and was really impressed.
Quite apart from the high quality of the work, we were impressed with the overall professionalism of the company. The staged payments gave us security, we had regular meetings with their project managers to discuss progress and any issues. We had some delays due to our council’s planning procedures, but the work still finished on the estimated date, otherwise we feel it would have been ahead of schedule.
Not only did the original quote remain fixed but they also saved us money by passing on significant trade discounts for various materials. Would we recommend or use this company again? Absolutely without hesitation.

In 2014 Cube built a wraparound extension on the back of our house and remodelled the downstairs. We were so happy with their work that we asked them to refurbish and extend our existing loft. Overall we are very happy with their work.

I am very pleased to have chosen Cube. They stuck to the original fixed price except where I chose to include extras. The team of workmen varied throughout the project but our project manager Mariusz stayed in control and met up regularly to discuss progress. I often communicated directly with the builders as this proved more effective than following the official route through project manager. Overall, Cube were an experienced, honest and hard-working team, including their contractors. We are really happy with the end result.
