My name is James Catt. I started my building carer when I left school at 16. From there I went on to Sussex downs college to study brickwork. this is where my passion for brick laying started.
Whilst at college I was nominated to compete in regional brick laying competitions and won Trainee of the Year in Sussex and Surrey.
I was very fortunate to have been accepted for a day release apprenticeship with a local reputable company in Eastbourne which helped me achieve my NVQ 1, 2 and 3 Advanced Craft, I stayed with them for five years and gained a lot of experience in refurbishments, listed buildings and lots more.
When I left I went self-employed and worked for a local builder, Andrew Nuttall for 5 years. This is where I really started to learn building and gained most of my experience in new builds, extensions and a very good all-round knowledge of building and all its trades. I left Andrew when I was about 26 and started to pursue my own dream and build my own business (James Catt Building Contractor) and my own reputation in the Building Industry. I am extremely passionate about bricklaying and building, and I’m always looking at ways to improve myself and expand my knowledge in the Building Industry. Recently, I completed a course in Flint work and working with Lime. I’m also looking to do my NVQ in Heritage Brickwork.
Above all I have a strong belief in honesty and hard work and believe this is what has served me best in my career to date.

I don’t normally do reviews. But James and his team did such amazing job for me I felt credit where credit is due.
I originally had a builder from hell ;( James came to see me at 7am in the morning before he start his job he was on. I told him want I wanted . He quoted me later that week . Told he how long it would take. A start and finish date . And did exactly and a bit more what he quoted.
James and his team are very polite . Clean and tidy and very trustworthy. So if your after a high quality of work and peace of mind that the job is going to be done right 1st time .
Look no further.
Take it from someone who learnt the hard way.
After having a number of issues with our previous builder, which resulted in us losing valuable time and money to an extension which was left incomplete and with a number of issues, we were then only prepared to use a builder who was recommended to us. James came highly recommended by various people we know and came out promptly to talk about the work we needed done.
We discussed that we wanted the extension work to continue as quickly as possible and for all issues to be resolved. James and his team started the work the following week and have completed everything to a very high standard.
One of the key things for us was that we maintained good communication with our builder after our previous experience, this is definitely one of James’ strengths. As well as being trustworthy, honest and reliable. His team are extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled in what they do. They have literally transformed the house we have renovated.
We have since asked James and his team to complete a number of further jobs and we will be recommending him to family and friends from now on.
