Over 100 Years of Construction...

Over 100 years ago Arthur Simms, a carpenter joiner moved to St. Albans to work on the building of St. Saviours Church. He married and settled in St. Albans, set up his own building company and built many houses in and around the city during his lifetime.

Arthur Simms earned a reputation as an honest man and craftsman. This tradition was maintained by his son and daughter in the family business through to the nineteen sixties.

The third and fourth generations of the same family are now continuing the family traditions by building new homes, converting old buildings, and undertaking a wide range of building contracts.

Pushing Rethinking and Innovation Within Our Work and the Industry


We have pushed towards more sustainable solutions of construction and reevaluated ourselves as a company to help improve our products and service to meet:

  • Environmental concerns
  • Economic climate
  • Rising fuel costs
  • Government drivers and targets
  • Higher levels of build & thermal quality
  • The needs and concerns of the general public
We are continuing to expand the company and operate a policy of continuous improvement.

Here at Lansberry, we are constantly looking for building opportunities and land to purchase and develop. Please contact us by phone or by email if you have any land that you believe may be suitable to develop. We can advise and could help you to obtain necessary planning approval.

We are also open to Joint Venture Contracts where we can undertake a development on a profit share basis with as much input/project management as required.

  • Mr R Evans

    "From the onset Nick was very personable and seemed very knowledgeable about the task ahead. He is probably more used to undertaking larger projects but he seemed to give this his full attention throughout the process. He coordinated his colleagues well and I was impressed with the final results. Good value for money particularly as we were working to a tight timescale which he met. Great Results, On Time, High Integrity."

  • Mr Veasey

    "Nick and his team at Lansberry are in danger of giving builders a good name! Aside of there competence in building to architect's drawings and managing the many obstacles en-route they also possess the necessary attributes of any quality service provider. They were punctual, attentive to detail, clean (as much as possible!) and treated me like a paying client as opposed to just the next meal ticket. I will be hiring Nick and Lansberry again and would recommend them to anybody doing extension or new build development in Hertfordshire"

    "I was so happy with the work carried out by Nick and his team. They were all really friendly and always happy to answer any of my questions. As well a checking with me that I was happy with how progress was going and if any issues came up, I was notified straight away. I would recommend them to all my friends who are having building or extensions work done in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. And when I have some more work done I will definitely be going back to Nick"

    "In January 2011, my family and I placed our trust in Lansberry, to build us the house of our dreams. The house is unique with an imaginative design, combining the latest in technology with cutting edge ecological innovation in a traditional barn appearance, build in sympathy with the local environment. It was a leap of faith involving all our savings plus some and I am delighted to say the building was completed on time and on budget and surpassed our expectations, with the after service you can only get from a family firm who take a pride in their work."
