J. Greenwood (Builders) Limited was established in 1971 and has successfully been undertaking new build and refurbishment works for over five decades. Our head office is located on the Manchester border, undertaking a wide variety of projects across the North West of England.


"I am very happy to recommend J. Greenwood Builders as builders who go out of their way to work with the customer to make the process as smooth as possible. We now have a new building we are proud of, which delivers on our sustainability values and was completed on time."

Malcolm Johnson – Greenbank Preparatory School

"In the summer of 2022, J. Greenwood Builders carried out essential works to enable us to increase our pupil intake. We had a great experience working with J. Greenwood Builders. They were reliable, professional and kept us up-to-date all along the way of the project and were very amenable when we had any queries. The project manager Lee Parkes was great to work with. I would highly recommend J Greenwood Builders Limited."

Linda Melia - Lancasterian School

"J. Greenwood Builders completed the scheme on behalf of Jigsaw Homes North. Their work was immaculate and their attention to every detail was faultless. They took on board all of our requirements and provided us with a dream scheme on completion, not only in terms of quality but with the all-important paperwork being well presented. J. Greenwood Builders, at their own expense, went above and beyond their remit and carried out external improvement works at the Community Centre located next to the site. The Manager of the Community Centre was extremely grateful to receive works to improve the communal areas outside the Centre, which added real social value to the Peel Lane scheme"

Alison Dalton - Jigsaw Homes

"Wythenshawe Park Athletics Track is a much loved and heavily used community space that was in great need of an up to date, accessible changing unit. The site has numerous stakeholders who were involved right from the start of the process; I was really impressed with the way that J Greenwood Builders worked with everybody involved, enabling community decision making wherever possible. On site, the team were flexible to the changing demands of the groups using the facility; professional and friendly when dealing with members of the public and responsive to any last-minute challenges. Communication with the team was simple and straight forward and we couldn't be more pleased with the result!"

Debbie Marsden - Manchester City Council

"J. Greenwood Builders did a good job on the Gate Street scheme. The team worked with us to get the properties built to a high standard and ready for our customers to move in. I enjoyed the process with J. Greenwood Builders and was happy with the results of the scheme."

Jessica Emmott – Mosscare St Vincent

"J. Greenwood Builders carried out the extensive internal refurbishment of a Grade II listed Victorian Building that was successful through to completion. All works including bespoke heating and lighting installations, finishes and decoration were completed to a high standard that complemented the interior of a combined art gallery and public library. The JGB project team provided a high level of contract and site management to achieve a successful outcome for this historic building."

Ron Lister - Calderdale Council

"J. Greenwood Builders were prompt in providing their build costs despite being engaged late on in the project, with a prompt start on site required by the client, which JGB were able to achieve, working closely with the pre-contract team. Once on site, JGB delivered a quality scheme and on time and have promptly resolved any defects that have inevitably arisen. We’re looking forward to working with JGB on more projects again in the future."

Richard Johnson - Jigsaw Homes

"Working with J. Greenwood Builders was a pleasure. The team were dedicated and committed to making sure the project and club house was a success. The service received from involvement in the early design stage right through to practical completion and beyond was first class. Their continued support and involvement of the club through sponsorship is invaluable."

Chris Irwin - Wellbeing Through Sport (Salford Roosters)

"I am writing to you to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work you authorised and which your guys carried out in our garden whilst working on the Peel Lane scheme. It is the most fantastic, precise, and perfect job! couldn't have wished for more, your guys were so professional, hardworking, and conscientious it was a pleasure having them work on our garden area. The completion of these works have enabled our community to get the most out of the space, which has been opened up and made more accessible for those with a disability and for the children to play out on. In the summer we can now buy tables and chairs and enjoy the space, along with building a raised bed for us to grow our own food. I can't thank you enough, it's companies like you and your guys who make this world a better place for those who have little."

Jane – Back O' Th' Moss Community Centre

"I just wanted to give some positive feedback following today’s handover of the 11 houses at Peel Lane. I have to say this is one of the best handovers that I have ever attended and as you know I have done hundreds over the years, the properties were immaculate, the site was spotlessly clean and tidy, gardens finished, tarmac completed, bins delivered, everything was spot on which is a refreshing change. All the hugs packs included a USB stick that included all the user manuals which I thought was a great idea. The site manager is excellent and would appreciate if you can feed this back, I would highly recommend using J. Greenwood Builders again."

Samantha Elliott - Jigsaw Homes

"Following on from the fire restoration works at Wythenshawe Hall, J Greenwood Builders Ltd were brought in to bring the staff offices and community spaces back to life. Working in a heritage environment can be challenging, and attention to detail is all important. As contractors, Greenwoods were responsive to our needs and requirements on site, approachable, friendly and did a great job on the final product."
