What you should look for is a reputable company with good reviews that will make the furniture and complete most of the finishing off site in their workshop where the quality can be controlled and is not dependent on having to finish, pack away and tidy up before time to go home.

Houses shift and move a little over time, so generally speaking, the older your home the more likely the walls will be uneven. So in terms of measuring of your bookcases, the width of the wall will be different all around, the same applies for taking measurements at floor level and ceiling level, meaning that you will have to select a company with skilled craftsmen to take account of all this to trim all the panels to fit perfectly.
There are so many on the job carpenters and companies with a wide variation in the quality they provide, typically most 'companies' are on the ‘job carpenters’ that will typically spend the best part of a week to start making your alcove units by cutting up all the material, probably in your beautiful garden, followed by allot of drilling and screwing to assemble the pieces and then sanding, usually in the room the fitted units are to be fitted. After this the bookcases will require painting, which will require 2 coats of primer, and then two coats of paint, oh and not to forget to mention, sanding down between each coat (more rubbing down and sanding of edges if MDF is used) so a good finish can be achieved, allot of disturbance. So probably a good week in total !
