About us

At SGBC we use our many years of experience to provide you with a personalised, efficient service throughout every stage of your project

Established by Julian and Vadym in 2011, Summit Group Building Company has earned a reputation for building high quality and bespoke homes spanning the residential and commercial sectors.

We provide a full design and build service to our residential customers.  This means you receive a truly bespoke offering from initial briefing to planning, design and project management of new builds or refurbishments.

We run a limited number of projects simultaneously. This allows us to very closely manage the intricacies of your requirements and deliver to timescales. It also allows us to achieve the right balance of providing you with a highly personalised service whilst maintaining our high standards of workmanship.

Our polite and friendly team consists of tradesmen skilled across many disciplines, all of which adhere to our tightly controlled standards. Our in house general builders, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and decorators are coordinated by a site manager who ensures you receive a seamless and exceptional building service.

We work with you

The small things really count.

We’re respectful in and around your house, we keep our work spaces in your home tidy, we won’t leave you without important utilities for unnecessary lengths of time, if needed we’ll even create a temporary kitchen for you.  Extensive building work can be very trying but we always try to make things just that little bit easier for you.

Whether you choose to stay in the property or move elsewhere, our team are accustomed to making your project as pleasant an experience as possible.

“I have no doubt that we were difficult clients to work with at times, as we were looking for such a high standard of finish, but Julian and his team were absolutely up to the job, meeting and often surpassing our expectations.”

Meet Julian

The son of an architect and 50% of the force behind SGBC.

After being introduced to his business partner, Vadym back in 2009 at a party, they became good friends. At the time, both were working for other building contractors in London. Julian specialised in finishing and Vadym worked on the structural side.  Soon after, they decided they could offer much more to homeowners by working together. They started Summit in 2011 with a mission to build amazing living spaces at affordable prices. 

Over the next couple of years Julian dug many of the foundations, plastered miles of walls and decorated a number of homes around East london to the highest standard.  This painstaking focus on the customers needs, keeping a tight leash on budget and keeping his team happy has helped Summit grow to 70+ employees who you will often see driving around in one of their “iconic” vans. 

Julian manages all of Summits projects in and around East London and West Essex whilst living in the area himself with his family. With a fantastic reputation that truly proceeds him throughout the locality, Julian and his team are working harder than ever to deliver a complete refurbishment or new build package like no other. 

Meet Vadym

Not only has he built Kylie Minogue’s wardrobes and refurbished her Wandsworth home but he’s also 50% of the force behind Summit Group Building Company. 

A carpenter by trade, he spent his early twenties working for local builders in East London. During this time he noticed a number of shortcomings often leading to unhappy customers. This stoked his early ambitions to create a building company with a difference. 

Vadym would travel across London, often working 14 hour days. He grafted and gained the skills that would later support his mission to start Summit. His aim was to excel in customer happiness, creating excellent value for money and having his team take pride in all stages of their work.

Soon after meeting his now business partner Julian, he quickly found that they had very similar ambitions. Their likemindedness and friendly competitive nature evolved into what is now a close friendship and underpins the Summit ethos.

Vadym manages his team of 35 tradesmen delivering bespoke refurbishments and new build projects in and around South East London. He relishes a unique project and is especially keen and experienced in crafting beautiful basements.
