Of the links there, "The Builders 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Builders>, a /Fawlty Towers/ episode" 
might be most useful.  :-)

In English this sense of "builder" normally means a (usually small) 
company that performs (house) building work, or a person that works for 
such a company.

A larger company that designs and oversees the construction of large 
housing estates (or other commercial or industrial property) might also 
be described as a "firm of builders", but it's not as good a fit.
