About Nutshell Construction

Celebrating heritage

We are a family-run construction business with our roots firmly placed in Sussex. Nutshell Construction was founded when three of the its members joined forces to complete our very first project, a sustainable new green oak build.

With a family history in the county dating back over 400 years, and vast experience in the restoration of listed buildings, we are passionate about capturing the indigenous Sussex architectural style, where possible, in our modern new build projects.

Upholding values

Our values are the core of who we are at Nutshell Construction and can be summed up in just four words: design, permanence, longevity and empathy.



When it comes to design, our very first step is to open and maintain communication between our clients and their architects and designers. It is our mission to turn innovative design and creative concepts into reality without compromising structural integrity.



As long-standing residents of Sussex, we value permanence above all else. Taking much of the pressure out of the construction process, our clients and partners can rest assured that we’re here to stay. Our team are always on hand to discuss project progress and we won’t consider any build complete until it’s absolutely perfect.



Reflecting our Sussex heritage, we create timeless structures for residents to enjoy for years to come. Our focus on integrity and attention to detail ensures that the buildings we create truly adorn the landscape, whilst possessing soundness of structure to stand the test of time.



At Nutshell Construction we are proud of our professional workforce. Our team understand that they are guests in your home and will always demonstrate respect.

A good understanding of our clients and partners lies at the heart of everything we do. We recognise the common concerns of our clients and promise to maintain a dialogue so that you never feel out of the loop.
