We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Forestside Construction. We couldn’t be more pleased with our rear extension and the quality of works undertaken by Steve and the team.
As someone who works within the industry, with an inspecting role, I have a keen eye for detail and I have to say that I couldn’t fault any of the works undertaken. I was more than satisfied by the quality of the works throughout which were carried out to the one of highest standards I’ve seen. In particular, the brickwork; which was immaculate and carefully detailed to match the existing characteristics and features.
The team were extremely well organised with fluid transition of trades resulting in minimal delays. They were reliable, efficient and easily approachable – it was a pleasure coming home each day to see the progress of works.
 I couldn’t recommend Forestside Construction enough and wish them every success in the future.

Mr & Mrs Osman, Marchwood 


Marchwood Parish Council would like to thank  Steve of Forestside Construction. It has been a pleasure working with them for the extension of the Lloyd Pavillion in building the Marchwood Youth Club.

Throughout the course of the build, Forestside were consummate professionals and were clear with instruction and information to the Parish Council. Any sub-contractors were well managed throughout the project.The build was done with care and precision and they were clean and tidy throughout. The standard and quality of the workmanship is there for all to see.

Marchwood Parish Council


Thank you doesn’t seem enough to say to Steve of Forestside Construction and all of those who worked on the Youth Club.

They were one of the most pleasant, approachable bunch of lads that you could of wished for, and nothing, however trivial was too much trouble to do. Thank you all so much – the impressive standard and quality of the workmanship is there for all to see.

Derek Hawkins, Handy Trust Youth & Community Worker


I have been using Forestside Contruction to carry out work in forming new foyers and wardens offices to the front entrances of our tower blocks in Weston, Southampton, for over one year.

The standard of work has been excellent. They have had to work whilst allowing the tenants to move in and out of the flats at all times. Also the works consisted of digging foundations and cutting slabs which they carried out without upsetting the tenants by constant liaison.

In addition, they had to work together with other large/specialist contractors and everything went like clockwork. They have always been punctual and kept to programme, specification and tendered costs.

I would have no hesitation in using them in the future.

Philip Ohmke, Southampton City Council

We would not hesitate to recommend Forestside Contruction as a quality builder. We found them professional and cheerful throughout the project and our delighted with the finished extension. In particular, we were impressed with the quality of workmanship of some of the more unusual features. We also felt we could work with the company to make any alterations as the project unfolded.

After deciding to have a conservatory built onto my detached bungalow, I obtained information and quotations from three companies. I chose Forestside Construction to do the work based on two factors 1. Price. 2. I felt comfortable with the company personnel that would be carrying out the work.

Forestside Construction were quick, clean and efficient workers. The finish was excellent and the whole project looks very professional. I am sure it has added value to my home.

I have already recommended Forest Construction to friends and family, and will have no hesitation in recommending them to others in the future.

Mrs I Hosey, Brockenhurst

Our work was carried out on time, and to the highest standard I have seen. I will also add that the building inspector commented on the high quality of work. I would recommend Forestside Construction to who wishes work to be carried out.

Forestside Construction came highly recommended to me to convert my garage into and additional room.

One of the directors came to visit me promptly and I was impressed with the attention to detail he recorded to produce an accurate quotation.

The works commenced on time, throughout which noise and dirt were kept to a minimum, the men attending site were very pleasant and friendly, my home and privacy respected and the standard of workmanship first class. Once completed, I could find no fault and was delighted with the standard of carpentry, brickwork and decoration involved. After- sales service was also very good.
