      What our customers think

      "So very delighted with our gazebo, it has really transformed our garden and our dog approves too!! Olympian were a pleasure to deal with throughout the ordering, building and after sales service. Highly recommend."

      Marian Pusey

      "Fantastic service from Olympian Garden Buildings. Having purchased a couple of sheds in the past we then purchased a 16x8 foot lovely garden building with a cedar wood tile roof and a beautiful Gazebo surround for our hot tub, also with a cedar tiled roof. Dealing with Nick and his team was effortless, superb knowledge of construction and design. They did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. The quality of the buildings and the construction by the team was fantastic, even in some appalling weather! You most certainly get what you pay for, and competitively priced. Coming back to put the finishing touches to the Gazebo, the team could not have been more knowle"

      Oliver Bamber

      "The team at Olympian Garden Buildings recently installed a 7x14ft Apex Workshop for us. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. We are very pleased with our workshop, it is solid and well made and is perfect for what we need. The team in the office were great at answering all of our questions (thank you Nick and Hannah!) and we received great advice on the need for a base and aftercare. The workshop went up in no time and the installation team were friendly and did a great job. Many thanks Olympian!"

      Vicky H

      "We needed to create some extra space at home to create a photography studio/ office. Having spent a long time searching suppliers of suitable buildings, we eventually had a shortlist of three, of which Olympian was one and the only one whose products we could physically see, as opposed to just trusting what is on the web.

      After visiting their site and talking to Nick, we decided to go with Olympian and can honestly say that the whole experience has been pretty near perfect.

      On-site during the build, the team were punctual and hard-working, Ian and his team were a pleasure to have here.

      I can wholeheartedly recommend Olympian to anyone considering a similar project."

      Adriano Henney

      "I have just had a 12’ x 20’ Cheshire studio designed and sited for my business. Amazing team. From start to finish, always glad to help and answer any questions. Great team of lads came and completed the work in one day, very tidy workmanship all day. Would recommend these for any buildings... we are already planning our next one."
