Our story

Our Story

HandyHumans is a London based construction business with a large plethora of experience in several sectors including residential, commercial and hotels. 

Co-founders Shakir Hussain and Ardis Merkaj craft solutions that prioritise high standards for every project, without compromising functionality. What began as a friendship between two aspiring entrepreneurs evolved into a rapidly growing construction business. With Shakir's IT expertise and Ardis' marketing strategy, two apparently opposite worlds collided and created a successful business with its headquarters in London.

We take pride in having a high returning customer rate. We have established fruitful relationships through multiple collaborative projects with different companies. The quality of work we offer is backed by numerous reviews from our satisfied clients. We also have a high review score on Checkatrade where you can find and book us for different services.

Melsie Bourne

Handy Humans are brilliant. They are efficient, quick, can help with pretty much everything and  are always speedy to book in to help with whatever the problem is.
They are good people and their prices are competitive. I am a single mum and feel safe knowing they are on hand to help. I have worked with them for years and would never go anywhere else. I highly recommend them.


Rachel M.

For once I have found a professional and courteous company that has helped me complete my project at my home without feeling ripped off, the team were friendly and so professional and gave me so much confidence, and lets not forget the reasonable rates. What a gem of a find. Frequent, transparent communications with a fresh outlook, they explained everything thoroughly and a full clear breakdown was on the invoice. Keep it up Handy Humans!

HandyHumans are the 1 stop shop for all your home refurbishment needs. They were very professional and didn't get fazed with the amount of work they needed to do. They came in and got straight to it. From the initial call to the first meet and the way the team came in and got to work without wasting time. I highly recommend them, they are professional, trustworthy and very reliable. I will be only using HandyHumans from now on. I have tried the rest now I'm using the best!
