Behind Abbott

We work with developers and architects across Kent, creating new, high-quality buildings across multiple sectors in the construction industry.

Our strong values have been maintained across 75 years and three generations of the Abbott family: honesty, integrity and reliability. Through these, we achieve exceptional results and mutually respectful relationships with our clients.

We have extensive experience in several different building sectors, and a significant proportion of our previous and current work is in partnership with our valued, repeat business clients.

We are constantly seeking and sharing knowledge about the industry to learn modern, methodical and sustainable ways of working. Abbott Construction is strongly committed to adapting to the industry changes and strive to maintain and develop on our existing accreditations to highlight our company values and demonstrate our processes.

We’re a locally trusted Canterbury-based company consisting of around 25 loyal employees that have the ability to establish and build long-lasting relationships with our clients, subcontractors and supply chain. The level of commitment and the relationships we build are what we believe help our projects stand out from the competition.
