Decking Project – Bickley, Bromley, London

Decking, Bickley

We installed a decking system with hardwood smooth decking on a property in Brickley, Bromley.


  • It’s a “clip-in” decking system, featuring hardwood smooth decking.
  • No fixings are on show to give it a great finish.

Here are more photos from the completed project.

Property Refurbishment project complete – Brockley, London

OBC Building just completed its latest refurbishment project, for a property situated in Brockley, London.


We refurbished the property inside and out, which included the following work:

  • New electrical wiring
  • Central heating
  • Took moulds of original decorative details that were existing and copied them in other parts of the house.
  • The external arch work was restored back from flaky old red paint using the traditional method called Tuck Point (aka “The Grand Illusion” as the Victorians called it).

Here are more photos from the completed project.

OBC – Completed Project – Sevenoaks

Completed Project - Sevenoaks

OBC has completed its latest project.

We added a side two storey extension to this lovely cottage in Sevenoaks, which dates back to the 19th Century. OBC also helped install an aluminium glass house in the rear of the property.

The materials used on the side were reclaimed to match it into the old.

More details on this project is available here.

OBC – Current Project – Sevenoaks

OBC are working on a contemporary garden room in Sevenoaks. The building will have a crisp finish with the use of a zinc soffit overhang and smooth hardwood decking it will be a beautiful contrast to the Historic farmer’s cottage that occupies the main plot. The garden room will be fitted with a sump pump system to allow for a wet area including shower, wc and basin allowing the client to use this as temporary accommodation whilst the main house project is carried out.

Main project

This historic cottage dates back to the eighteen hundreds and is full of charm. The red brick and half peg tile hung façade will be sympathetically continued to create a new two storey side extension. At the rear of the property the existing PVC conservatory will be removed and replaced with a larger aluminum glass house. The inclusion of some large steel will allow some internal walls to be removed and allow a much better open plan living and dining space.
