MARLEE Building Services is a relatively new company but at the same time having vast experience within our team.
Directors, Myself (Martin) and Lee have a wide range of skills shared between us, having both served many years in the Building Trade.
I began working with my father roofing in my teens, working most weekends and school holidays.
Leaving school I enrolled in a Boat Building Apprenticeship. After 3 years served and careful consideration I realised that Boat Building wasn’t for me and I took it upon myself to start a Bricklaying course.
Working on site become daily routine for me and something I enjoyed, I got to meet new people who were good at what they did and became close friends whilst at the same time picking up invaluable experience which has helped me to further myself in what I do.
Having settled at Austin Brickwork, they became my employer for the next 9yrs, where my skills played a key role in the company's progression and were their ‘go to’ gang of bricklayers. I was gang Foreman which included the responsibility of studying plans for new builds, setting out multiple houses whether it be 1 bed houses, blocks of flats to 6/7 bed mansions in Surrey.
During my time at Austin Brickwork is where I met Lee.
Lee having the same work ethics as myself, enthusiasm, skill set and quality workmanship we become good friends.
Lee, also a grafter from a young age, started out in Groundworks with him rapidly moving forward into more involved roles, overseeing large gangs of workmen, laying out patterns and foundations according to work orders.
We decided to start a gang of Bricklayers, which went on to assist in building many houses in the Hampshire area over 4yrs.
Working well as a team for a long period of time, gaining further knowledge, learning the correct way to build according to current Building Regulations, Health and Safety Guidelines, we were ready for a new challenge.
That’s where MARLEE Building Services were formed, Priding ourselves on Quality Workmanship, knowledge and a happy friendly service with affordable, competitive pricing, we feel our services stand out above the rest.
