Humble Beginnings

In 2003, after a year of travelling with my girlfriend and a baby on the way, I bought my first property for my new family. My new home was in desperate need of updating and so with little money to spare, I embarked on my first redevelopment, simply learning as I went along. Despite having no training, my new home looked amazing when finished and that’s where my passion for development began.

After a couple more successful projects for friends and family, I went to college and obtained formal qualifications as a specialist painter. I then began trading and providing services for local people and businesses.

Developing Developments

As my business grew, many of my customers needed more than painting. Although my property development skills were pretty good, in 2016 I met Marian and was able to really expand on the services provided. Born in Bucharest and having been working ‘on the tools’ with his father since he was 15, Marian is a fantastic all round multi-tradesman. His plastering and tiling skills are amazing and he is totally dedicated to providing top class work. His brother, Madalin, has also joined the company to further expand the team. We now also have a wide range of local trade contacts to provide additional building skills to support our primary services.
