Kieren Betts

I have been in the construction trade for the past 20 years and have worked in partnership with Jamie for the past 2 years.

I started my career alongside my step dad (a local builder in the area) where I undertook all aspects of building work.

I decided in 2004 to branch out on my own, continuing with the high quality of service and workmanship I had been taught and also extending my portfolio of work.

It was then in 2014 I went into partnership with Jamie, bringing our expertise of Building and Carpentry together and aiming to work alongside our customers to achieve what they are looking for.

Jamie Cranfield

I have been involved in the building industry for almost 20 years. I started my career and trained as a site carpenter working on new build properties. After a couple of years I moved on to high specification refurbishments and extensions where I learn’t to fit kitchens and many different finishing techniques.

Over the years I have been involved in many different aspects of the building trade from loft conversions, extensions and refurbishment work, working alongside and learning from some brilliant tradesmen. I have been project managing for ten years now and self employed for almost 15 years.

I pride myself in providing a fast, clean and high quality finish to every project I have taken on.

Kieren and I have worked on and off for many years before finally teaming up as Betts & Cranfield. Our company has gone from strength to strength and we remain committed to building our reputation in and around the Colchester area for many years to come.
