About us

1st Choice Improvements Ltd has it’s office in Bognor Regis, West Sussex and has over 20 years experience in the building trade/ construction industry covering Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey undertaking the full breadth of building work. For more information on the services we provide see our services section.

With a great reputation, 1st Choice Improvements provides building services for both small and large projects from inception to completion for individuals, lettings agents, estate management and large companies – no job is too big or too small.

We cover all aspects of building offering a friendly, efficient and cost effective service and, because we are available 24 hours a day, you know we're always here when you need us.

Our work is carried out to the highest standards thanks to the quality of our professional workforce of builders and tradesmen and the use of highly experienced sub-contractors that take time and care over the work they carry out for our customers.

1st Choice is owned and run on a day to day basis by Nick Underwood who has consistently achieved a high level of satisfaction amongst his clients by maintaining control and accountability from the inception of the building project right up until completion. His open communication with all parties means the customer can understand the progress made against the plan and know precisely which activity will be undertaken during the following days and weeks. This mitigates any risk that is inherent in all projects, both large and small and obviously helps avoid misunderstandings.

We can work to your own approved plans, or we can offer a complete project management service, including:

  • design consultation
  • architectural drawings
  • engineering calculations
  • submission to your Council for planning and building control approval
  • construction
