After obtaining an Honours degree in Building Management at Aston University, I worked for several of the largest building companies including G.Wimpey, French Kier and Kyle Stewart, giving me considerable knowledge and experience working on high value Commercial Projects. This was followed by time as a Director of Try Homes running the Try Homes House Building company in East Anglia.
Over 16 years ago, I set up my own house building company. Building about 60 houses in Suffolk and around East Anglia.
For the last 5 years I decided to concentrate on small contracts and project management from my base between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket in Suffolk. These have included standard building construction, renovations, new houses, extensions, timber framed buildings and renewable energy sources.
