Who We Are

Born and bred in Sussex, we are a family-run construction company with a passion for the Sussex landscape and aesthetic. This passion is only natural, since our directors have a family history in the county going back more than 400 years.

We have a love and respect for the vernacular design of Sussex and the South East, and it is for this reason that we choose to call this beautiful area “home”.

What’s more, every member of the Nutshell team shares our ethos and we’ll always aim to make the construction process as pleasant as possible.


Nutshell Construction creates exceptional properties, including residential and commercial developments.


What We Do

What do we do? In short, we create exceptional properties, both residential and commercial, with design, longevity, permanence and empathy at the top of our agenda.

We’re always excited to put the Nutshell stamp on projects across Sussex and the South East and we love talking to our clients and partners about big ideas and new designs.

It is this that drives our empathic and sensitive approach – something which sets us apart from the industry as a whole. Our commitment to quality and communication forms the central ethos of Nutshell Construction and makes us who we are.

We are specialists in the restoration of Grade I and Grade II listed buildings, but we also deliver our skills to any project that excites us architecturally, whether that’s a renovation or a completely blank slate!
