Hannah Walkiewicz

Founder, The Build Bristol Group

The Build Bristol Group is a Design & Build company who provide full design and construction services for Residential projects within Bristol. There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.” When you think of an industry dominated by men, construction might be one of the first that comes to mind. Of all the people working in construction, women comprise only 10.3 percent. Even smaller is the number of women on the front lines of a job site—only one for every 100 employees in the field. “When I come up against male-led competitors in the city, it hasn’t always been easy. But the relationship I build with clients has shown I’m more than capable in a ‘man’s world’.” It has shown my 15-year-old daughter Matilda that you can do anything you want to with hard work and determination.” Established in 2014 we have grown from a team of 2 to a multi-disciplined team of 26. 2022/2023 expected turnover to be over £2,000,000.00 • In 2021 Hannah was one of 10 Women to be awarded the prestigious NatWest Female Founders Campaign. There were over 3000 applications for the award. The campaign highlighted careers not usually associated with females! • We have won a ‘Best of Houzz’ award for the following years 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023. • Shortlisted for Bristol Life Awards, Bath Life Awards, Bristol Property Awards and Bath Property Awards. • Hannah won ‘Female Entrepreneur of the year’ at the 2023 EntreConf Awards in September 2023.

Statement:

"The Build Bristol Group is the only Female led & owned Design and Build Company in Bristol. It was founded at the end of 2013 by Hannah Walkiewicz realising the gap in the Bristol market for not just a good builder but an excellent builder."
