Year Established

The build quality of your project is very much enhanced by the knowledge of materials and skills available for the construction.

We have been building new homes, extensions, loft conversions and all other aspects of the construction industry including commercial and industrial for over 45 years. We draw on this tremendous amount of experience in understanding exactly how to fulfil our customer’s dreams and aspirations.

Using us for the complete service will not only save time and money, it will enable you to carry on normally, knowing the project is in very capable hands.

Established in 1966 by Jack Wright, Wright Ruffell (Sturricks) Ltd. was specifically formed to construct a housing estate in Sturricks Lane, Great Bentley.Well known and respected in the local area, the Wright family are able to trace their family history in the village back 250 years.

Roger’s honours degree in Building Technology from Brunel University, Uxbridge have enabled the company to be flexible and undertake a wide range of building projects.

Wright Ruffell (Sturricks) Ltd is now seeing the next generation coming through, with Roger’s sons Chris and Tony being actively involved in the team, which also includes Andy Cameron.

The building industry has had a reputation for sometimes having a confrontational attitude, but we see co-operation and understanding as being a key philosophy. We also believe strongly in the following:

  • Assisting clients wherever possible
  • Giving time to those seeking knowledge and expertise
  • Giving the best advice for the situation so that clients are not misled
  • Giving a fair price and brief specification for a good standard of work
  • Keeping the client up to date with progress and price alterations

Our most successful projects are those that combine the expertise of design with specialist construction knowledge and pricing abilities. Every estimate is accompanied by a brief but comprehensive specification so that we and the client understand what has been agreed from the outset. Particularly popular amongst existing clients and most important for cost sensitive projects, we will produce good quality designs with budget (or more accurate, if required) costings.

Once appointed, we will gladly assist clients through the bureaucratic maze of planning, building regulations and legal obligations, more often than not preventing problems before they even occur.

We have unparalleled knowledge and expertise in specialist building projects that has been gathered during our many years in business. As testament to the service received, contented clients are often providing referrals for keeps the team busy with new projects.
