About Us

Who We Are

Acorn Construction is a well-established Eltham-based business, with our office located in a friendly parade of shops just a few moments’ walk from Eltham train station. Many people meet us for the first time by dropping in for a chat, which we always like.

And of course, you will always know where to find us. No anonymous white vans here!

We operate across South East London and within Central London.

We have an excellent reputation for having delivered many successful projects, some of which can be seen elsewhere on the website. As a result, we have a robust network of tradesmen and suppliers to fully support our activities.

Our directors and senior managers are degree-qualified and our site managers are very experienced tradesmen, ensuring a combination of technical excellence and craftsmanship expertise in all the work that we undertake.

As a professional company dedicated to delivering a dependable, friendly and supportive service, we carry all the necessary insurances and accreditations to assure you that nothing should go wrong in the first place – but if very unusually there is a mishap, it will be fully resolved to your satisfaction.

The business is owned by Colin Forrest, formerly a senior executive with a number of large engineering and construction companies. Having personally suffered the distress and disappointment of trying to get reliable work done on his own home in the past, he was keen to ensure that the standards of service provided by Acorn Construction will set it apart from its competition. Please feel free to contact Colin on 07721 748190.

What We Do

We specialise in two separate, but complimentary, types of work:

Residential Extensions, Conversions & Refurbishments

Whether you are looking to make improvements to your home so it is better suited for your lifestyle and tastes, or are interested in adding value when you come to sell, we can help.

Whatever your individual requirements, from decorating, through bathroom updates or new drives & patios, up to large fully managed house extensions, we can utilise our wealth of experience and ideas to accurately interpret and deliver your design concepts and dreams.

Commercial Fitting Out, Alterations & Major Maintenance

We understand that busy and successful businesses need a very efficient and professional business to deliver improvements to the properties. With many years of experience in the fitting out, alteration and major maintenance of hotels, restaurants and offices, we are just such a partner.

Above all, we understand that such projects need to be delivered with the twin priorities of certainty and quality, so are very used to working to tight deadlines, often working around occupants whose ability to continue their normal duties – as well as their personal safety – is paramount.
