Meet the team

Martin worked in the Northampton building and construction industry for many years before founding the company over 20 years ago.
As well as being an outstandingly friendly guy, he is a fountain of knowledge with a huge range of experience in all aspect of building in both commercial and residential projects.
Luke is Martin’s son and “L” in the company name. He is a father of two and a bricklayer by trade, but he’s also pretty awesome at plastering, tiling and landscaping.
These days Luke has taken on much of the day to day running of the business, but he still manages to get his hands on the tools when he can.
Sam is Luke’s brother-in-law. He is a fully qualified carpenter with over 20 years experience in the building trade. He is a brilliant all-rounder, and just at home plastering and rendering.
He’s even been known to create pretty amazing birthday cakes.

Sam (B)
Ok, his surname isn’t “B” but when you’ve got 2 Sams we had to use something! He’s one of our carpenters and to be honest another fantastic multi-trader with a great eye for detail.
Jordan trained as a carpenter, he is a hard grafter and always keen to learn new skills.
Nick is our main plumber and bathroom installer. He’s an amazingly reliable and helpful guy, but watch out for his singing!

What our customers say

Luke and his team have done a fantastic job on our bathroom, tiled the whole room, fitted a shower and towel rail. The whole job was done in a very professional manner and clean. I would definitely recommend them.


They are professional, reliable and honest. Furthermore, there’s no bad language or loud music on site. If you want a job done properly, with care and attention to detail, I recommend them.


My biggest worry is leaving my house with people. With the Bannisters, I never felt this. Every employee has made me feel completely at ease and the work is top draw!! Just great tradesman and trustworthy guys.


Just wanted to say how happy we both are with all the work you have done, it’s all to such a high standard, nothing was too much trouble, and it looks fab. From the extensions, staircase to the garden, I can’t recommend you all enough. Highly professional, friendly, and great with letting me know what was going on.
