our clients say
“We approached Campbell to help us renovate an old cottage in Coledale. Our plans included building a new kitchen and living area extending out from the original house, maximising the floorplan to include another room and updating the interior where needed. An important part of the brief was that we retain as much of the original building as possible.
From our first meeting, Cam’s approach was honest and thorough. Through initial discussions with Cam and our architect, we knew what to expect and what everyone’s roles and responsibilities were. We understood how our choices would effect the building process, so were able to plan for that to help facilitate a smooth build.
Cam took care to keep us well informed once the building was underway and worked hard to ensure there were no surprises (other than pleasant ones!) There is a singular intention with Cam’s work, from the way he has built a team of like-minded building professionals around him, down to his calm yet determined drive to deliver quality work. On this project, he was able to balance his passion for a high quality build with the constraints of a finite budget and fixed timeline. With everyone taking responsibility and working together, Cam and his team were able to bring to fruition a bespoke renovation with quality in all the right areas.
We were delighted that the process ran so smoothly and resolved on-time and on-budget, a rare and delightful outcome for any building project! The joy of living in a house with such a fine level of craftsmanship cannot be understated. Heartfelt thanks to Cam and his team!”

“I’m so grateful to have had Greensmith & Co. build my house. Not only because it was built with accuracy and precision, but because materials were selected, sourced and used with great sensitivity to the site and wider environment. The house is beautifully made and this can be seen and felt when you inhabit it.”
- Jim, Otford House
“We used Greensmith & Co. to build a granny flat in 2018. We wanted something environmentally friendly but stylish and modern. We are very pleased with the finished space. It has already been very useful for friends and family and provides extra entertaining space undercover. The builders were all very professional, polite and punctual. Campbell Smith, himself is very consultative and we have recently reemployed his firm to do a renovation at the front of our house.”

“Our lovely little reno was achieved with minimal fuss and maximum delight thanks to the talented Greensmith & Co. crew. Cam led the process with warmth, clarity and kindness. Greensmith & Co. and Barnacle Studio collaborated with us to understand our needs, budget and values. Cam is a principled advocate for sustainable building, who has nurtured a talented and focussed team of people who were a pleasure to have on site. Great design and the magic of carpentry has reconfigured a frustrating miners cottage layout into a playful, functional, adaptable and very beautiful family space. It's full of love, care, and thoughtfulness and we couldn't be happier.”

“Campbell Smith provided a professional service in the delivery of this project. His communication in the preliminary costing phase was clear and helpful, with ample time to discuss the details of the project and costing breakdown. During construction, His workers proved efficient in the carrying out of tasks, and were cheerful and inviting on the site. The building phase was carried out without difficulty or delays and was run smoothly. Communication to request further information on details produced good outcomes on all occasions, and the level of finish was of a high standard.”
