About Us

Founded in 1908 by Frank Hall and Charles Gilbert, Gilbert & Hall is a fourth generation family business. We have strong roots in the East Midlands – having been based in and around Nottingham since our inception – and are expert housebuilders, completing projects which enrich and complement their surroundings.

We pride ourselves on our experience and understanding of the creative approach to building homes. Through our connections with award-winning architects, estate agents and property professionals, we’ve completed some of Nottinghamshire’s finest developments.

Directors Chris and Paul met in 1993. Chris then joined the family business in 1996 and was made a director in 1997, with Paul following in 2000 and being made director in 2004 – continuing the family-run business and maintaining an excellent reputation, one which has been created through generations of property experts.

“Building is in my blood; I’ve been brought up around building sites with my Father and his brothers all being involved in the family business from a young age. I achieved a degree in construction management, specialising in residential development, from Nottingham Trent University – which was sponsored by British Gypsum. I then went on to work in the North East of the country for a national housebuilder before moving back down to the Midlands, which is where I met Paul.

“I joined Gilbert & Hall in 1996 and, together with Paul, have since developed the company to focus on luxury developments – focussing on high-end, Nottinghamshire locations and completing bespoke projects across the region.

“I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and, with such a varied portfolio of schemes, there’s nothing we haven’t done in terms of projects – from apartments to office space. The future of Gilbert & Hall looks exciting, with new projects coming in all the time and I look forward to continuing to support Nottinghamshire’s housing market and more, creating beautiful homes for buyers to enjoy.”

“I come from an engineering background, with a HND in structural engineering. I started out at the local authority and was there for almost 10 years working in the highways division, before moving to a well-known housebuilders.

“In 1996 I moved to another housebuilding firm and then ended up as a regional lead for Barratt Homes in the South Midlands before joining Chris at Gilbert & Hall in 2000 – and haven’t looked back.

“We create bespoke estates and really focus our efforts into creating the best homes possible – favouring quality over quantity in terms of the finished product. As housebuilders, we’ve developed a strong reputation for our attention to detail and standard of houses – this is something I’m particularly proud of and look forward to developing the business as the market continues to change and evolve.”
