We are pleased to announce that we will be carrying out the enabling and structural works of The Brunel Office Building next to the SS Great Britain.

The listed building requires underpinning, new structural steels and a large amount of timber repairs internally. We will be working within Isombard Kingdom Brunel's drawing room where so many great designs and inventions were conceived and planned.

We are really pleased the SS Great Britain Trust has given us the responsibility to carry out the works to such an iconic building with huge historical importance within Bristol.


We have won the refurbishment of the UWE Glenside Library. The works include a large strip out, demolition of various areas and a new installation of mechanical and electrical services, decorations, flooring, new toilet areas and office space.

The works will be testing to complete within the time period required, however  the library will be a great space for studying upon completion.


K P Wilton & Son Ltd have secured the development of a new staff room within the Glenside campus. The project is next to the old laundry rooms and with its vaulted ceilings, lantern roof light and timber floor the area will be stunning once completed.

We will be bringing the old building back to life, keeping as many of the old features as possible as the building is listed. Our works include roof repairs, lantern roof light restoration, a new kitchen, toilet blocks and a high spec finish to the area.


In the centre of Bath lies the John Wood Building student accommodation block. We have won the contract to replace the windows to the 4th Floor. Our works comprise of erecting a scaffold and hoist, removing and replacing the windows and making good.


The Marlborough and Salisbury buildings are on the Bath University Main Campus. We have secured the window replacement project which consists of removing seven curtain walling sections and replacing with timber opening window casements. The project is phased across the summer break completing before the return of the students in September.

Client Testimonials

The fact that I have employed the services of K P Wilton & Son for 28 years is testament in itself! Wilton’s have consistently made me feel that my custom is important to them, whether it be a £50 minor repair or a £50,000 refurbishment, the service is always of the highest standard.

Rob and his staff have always been friendly, helpful and courteous and I have received many positive comments from my own work colleagues following works carried out by their tradesmen in our various business locations.


K P Wilton were very professional right from the start of our renovation project.  They project managed the renovation from start to finish.  This took the stress out of having to organise different contractors for each component of the renovation and meant there would be just one point of call for any issues that might arise. 

The workmen were all excellent, with fantastic attention to detail.  Any changes in the project were dealt with swiftly and without hassle.  The outcome was brilliant and the workmanship excellent, with the project being completed exactly on schedule.

I would highly recommend them.


We worked with K P Wilton and Son on two phases of the Girlguides Briarlands Activity Centre in South Gloucestershire and throughout the process the office and site team contributed in an efficient and collaborative manner. The end product was a credit to all concerned, with K P Wilton providing a key role in delivering a high quality facility for future generations to enjoy.


K P Wilton and Son are one of the few remaining general contractors who maintain a skilled workforce within their organisation and are therefore able to offer a quick, efficient and friendly service on a variety of building projects from a small internal fit-out to a large new-build project.


The work was completed on time and in budget with the use of skilled and professional staff, I would certainly recommend the company to others.


Contract involved Structural underpinning and Extensions to the Wigwam at the Red Lodge. 

KP Wilton & Sons undertook a very complicated contract to stabilise the building which showed evidence of serious structural failure at “Platform” end of the Wigwam. It involved extensive bored piling and underpinning to the external and some internal walls. In addition new toilets and a larger store area were built.

In all KP Wilton completed the work very much to our satisfaction and the quality of the resulting work was very satisfactory.


Having worked with KPWilton and Son on a number of complex refurbishment projects, we have found their approach to be friendly and co-operative with both clients and consultants. We have been satisfied with the quality of their work at the end of the project and have found their team both helpful and knowledgeable.
