About Us

Hughes Escott Ltd is a family business that was set up in 2011 by Mark Escott and John Hughes, between them bringing over 60 years’ experience in the construction and retail industry.
Since then the company has consistently grown year on year, with a multi-skilled team delivering projects across the UK to a broad range of commercial and retail clients. The directors continue to oversee every project, providing a personal service to each client. The cornerstone of our philosophy is a dedication to service and quality; our aim is to create smart, practical workspaces for all of our clients – from small independent shops to FTSE Top 100 companies.

What makes us different?

  • A comprehensive range of services – we can deliver your project from start to finish, or provide a combination of services as required (including workspace design, electrical contracting, project management, data upgrades, bespoke joinery, flooring, decorating and much more).
  • A solid reputation – with over 30 years’ experience, we have a strong track record and are trusted by our clients to deliver projects on budget, on time and snag free (and if a project comes in under budget, we’ll refund the difference).
  • A personal approach – we take pride in our excellent customer service and will ensure that all of your needs are addressed; our directors oversee every project and are available to talk to clients.
  • A commitment to the environment – we are experts on energy efficiency and can help businesses reduce their carbon footprint as well as their energy bills.
