About Us

Colston have been in Eastbourne for over 12 years and we currently operate from our retail shop in Willingdon Road. From there Colston provide a professional maintenance and installation service for a wide range of commercial clients across the South East. Whether it is a boutique hotel in London’s Covent Garden or a top-notch hairdressing salon in Brighton, or even a car park in Burgess Hill, we have a highly skilled and adaptable fully mobile team able to work to tight deadlines.


In the building trade experience counts for a lot, especially when the pressure is on and time is short.

Our Colston team has experience in bucket loads across a wide range of disciplines. This includes not only the craft skills required in suspended ceilings, partitions and building maintenance but also with professional advice and support. Alex Nicholls, Colston’s owner and Director, has thirty years’ experience in Construction, General Building Maintenance and Facilities Management, and as a member of both the RICS and BIFM he carries this support and accreditation into every job and customer meeting.

Our flexible team is mobile, fully branded in company vans and workwear and are Accredited Contractors for East Sussex County Council and members of Construction Line. All out staff are fully DBS checked for safety. Colston’s wide range of commercial customers across the South-East benefit from using our team as a first point of call for all their building and maintenance needs. As a fast first responder Colston can diagnose the problem, fix it – more often than not, and if not provide a quick solution directly or through one of its partners.
