Our Story

Builders with a difference, creating better spaces in your home in the South East

My name is Alan Norton and I run Equilibrium Building Solutions Ltd.   We are builders in Hastings, covering East Sussex, Kent and the South East. Equilibrium meets the needs of private domestic clients, specialising in major home refurbishments, extensions and remodelling.

So. That’s the basics.  Read on, there’s more. Lots more.

Is this your home?

In short, if your kitchen or bathroom is in the wrong place, of if these rooms are no longer fit for purpose, we can help.

Maybe you have an internal wall that sort of gets in the way. Perhaps it’s time for a total change.

If so, you’re on the right page.  If you’d like to turn your garage into an office, your office into a gym, extend upwards into the roof or backwards into the garden, we can do all of this – and much else besides.

New doors, floors, or painting?  Yes, no problem. Perhaps you need structural steelwork, bricklaying, roofing, new electrics, plumbing or heating services?  That’s us, too.

How is Equilibrium different?

How do YOU perceive the building trade?  Well, we’re poles apart. Atypical. Distinct.  How? Because not only are we excellent, gold-standard builders, we also offer a complete design service, via a professional team of architects and structural engineers.

There’s more.

Equilibrium can also liaise with your local planning authority, taking care of everything, including building control notices.  Permission granted, thank you very much.

In a crowded, competitive sector, we’re punctual, friendly, professional and very, very good at what we do.  If you’re looking for builders in Hastings, we’d be pleased to offer you the benefit of our experience, so contact us today.
