About Axminster Design and Build

A friendly professional team dedicated to bringing your project to life.

David Bastin – Director

David started out in the construction industry with an apprenticeship for trowel occupation, living and working on a farm in the middle of the countryside. Working for this company for 6 years took David from apprentice to fully mastering all Masonry and all wet trades. After reaching the level of expert of Masonry, David decided to leave the farm staying close with his previous employer whom he feels indebted too and went out on his own setting up Axminster Design and Build Limited.

His first job after setting up was as a mason on the Lyme Regis sea defence project where he carried out general mason works building stone walls and manholes. After this project, he set up a bricklaying team that worked on building hundreds of houses for well-known construction company’s. He decided to move into the private sector completing his first full extension in 2013, since then through word of mouth and working closely with local architects he maintained a constant flow of work delivering consistently high standards of extensions and new builds.

Through the years he has carefully sourced the best and most reliable subcontractors to work as a close-knit team working as one of the most efficient and hardworking building teams in the local area holding themselves to high standards and professionalism.
