B.D. Upton Builders


We are a family firm of builders who have been working in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire since the 1972. Originally set up by Dick Upton and then carried on by his son Chris. Dick retired at in 2012 at the age of 67 and Chris continues to concentrate on new build properties for sale and rental purposes. More about our history….

We now work entirely on our own new quality home developments.
