About Bellco Construction

How Bellco came to life

Bellco Construction is the brainchild of two good friends, Addison Dethridge and Joe Linch. With over thirty-five years’ experience, they wanted to improve the somewhat poor image held by so many construction companies. The name Bellco was actually an amalgamation of the names of the two friends’ dogs: Joe’s dog Bella and Addison’s dog Kalico.

Joe started his construction life as a bricklayer, going on to found his own small building company, specialising in extensions and new builds. Addison started his construction journey as a carpenter, meeting Joe when his team worked on one of Joe’s projects. Having built a strong working relationship, they both discussed their visions about creating a new image for builders, one that was founded on customer satisfaction, reliability and trust. The rest, as they say, is history.

A highly trained team

Our highly trained team covers the whole of East Sussex, delivering a personable, polite and highly professional service. We are passionate about our work, having spent many years operating within the building sector. We know exactly how to build in a way that makes the best use of our skills and extensive knowledge.

Peace of mind for our clients

Our work is fully guaranteed, and we pride ourselves on our quality of workmanship. Our Contractors All Risk Insurance covers the entire value of our customer’s project, something that many other contractors do not offer. Our valued customers have peace of mind that although their home insurance policy may not cover them during building works, our comprehensive policy protects against damage and burglary for the entire duration of the project.

Growth through recommendation

Many of our customers come to us via recommendation from existing clients, who often share their positive reviews with family and friends. For added reassurance, we are proud members of the FMB (Federation of Master Builders).

Why should you choose Bellco Construction?

Quick, reliable and meaningful customer communication

We will keep you up-to-date with all programmes and processes, ensuring you fully understand the project at all stages.

Experienced and qualified tradesmen

We will use only experienced and qualified tradesmen. Each of our apprentices has an appointed expert, who will mentor and coach until they are confident to undertake tasks on their own.

Flexible approach

We offer a full turn-key package — from design to build — removing worry and stress. We have a flexible approach to every project; our clients’ preferences vary hugely, for example, you may prefer to supply your own drawings, or want to complete the interior decoration yourself. We listen to what you want, and work hard to accommodate all your needs.

No obligation quote

Our fully detailed transparent no-obligation quote is totally free, as is the expert advice we offer. We take no money until the point of booking; we want you to feel safe in the knowledge that you are fully informed and know exactly what you will be paying for.

Transparent quotation breakdown

We provide a detailed and transparent quotation breakdown, making it easy to see what is included and what is an addition; we guarantee there will be no hidden extras or unwanted financial surprises.

Detailed programme of works

A fully detailed programme of works is provided and agreed before we start. Major works or any works that may cause inconvenience are discussed in detail, meaning there are no surprises along the way.


Where appropriate, a full end-of-build clean is undertaken, prior to handover, by one of our experienced cleaning teams.

Quality insurance

We are fully insured with both Contractors All Risk Insurance and £5,000,000 public liability. These policies are sourced from a reputable insurance company, not a cheap online-only insurer.
