Our story


Our past . . .

Wallace Baxter was founded in 2011 by husband and wife Alex and Claire Baxter, but the company's roots go back much further. 

Alex's grandfather, Wallace, ran a successful building firm with his son, Alexander Senior. As a teenager and young man, Alex worked for the firm, gaining experience across all areas of construction and developing a specialism in groundworks.

In 2011 Alex and Claire decided to start their own construction and renovation business, using the family name which is so well respected in West Sussex and the surrounding counties.

Wallace Baxter Ltd grew rapidly, its success reinforced by the support of a dedicated team of highly skilled staff and contractors.  With decades of combined expertise, the business has built an enviable reputation for reliability, efficiency and attention to detail.




Our present . . .

Today, our focus is on residential new builds and renovations, but we also work with commercial clients and estate managers, as well as on smaller domestic projects such as loft conversions and extensions.

We are always keen to liaise with architects and planning authorities at the early stages of a proposal to ensure a cohesive and efficient approach that benefits all parties.

Fully insured and with rigorous health and safety standards, our work is guaranteed to be carried out with true craftsmanship and exceptional care.



Your future . . .

If renovation is your interest, we are experienced in working on listed buildings, sourcing local materials to ensure a sensitive finish that meets all planning guidelines and respects the environment.

New build and construction developments are a passion too. We love to see a project right through to the end, and can provide full landscaping services, working with landscape architects to achieve breathtaking transformations to gardens large and small.
